This beautiful spa town, founded in 1793, is located in West Bohemia. The spa has preserved the unique atmosphere of the beginning of the 20th century, reflected in the neo-classicism era. Thanks to this, the town is fairly regarded as one of the most romantic corners of the country. The spa resort is characterized by a mild climate, typical for the foothills, and exceptionally clean air far from the noise and rush of big cities. The surrounding parks are a suitable place for a peaceful walk with background music coming from the colonnades. All this is amplified by the beneficial effects of the mineral springs that attract many tourists wishing to improve their health.
