The starting point for your journey to the picturesque nooks and wide spa colonnades is the square Goethovo náměstí with the Municipal Museum
. On the square, Hotel Kavkaz No. 9,
where Edward VII stayed, should not escape your attention. Across the square around the monument to Goethe
and the Church of the Assumption,
you will come to the colonnade with the Rudolph and Carolina Spring.
Your next steps will then lead to the admired Singing Fountain,
which also begins with the unique cast iron colonnade.
At its other end Cross Spring (Křížový pramen)
, of whose medicinal effects even the famous doctor Albert Schweizer was convinced, rises up to the top. From the colonnade you head to Forest Spring (Lesní pramen)
where you can rejuvenate in the spring water and enjoy the charming nature that even enchanted Franz Kafka. Those for whom water is not enough can visit a pleasant café for refreshment in summer. If you are hungry, it's time to go back through the park to the center to taste some Czech specialties.
In the afternoon, the original Boheminium park
awaits you, where you can see the largest architectural and technical gems in the Czech Republic in faithful mock-ups. In addition to the original park you can also visit the nearby Fairytale sculpture paradise, Hamelika lookout tower or the fallow deer field. In the evening, do not miss the fireworks show, which will be complemented by the musical production of the Singing Fountain. If you can manage to catch this concert of water and light on the way from the Roman Baths
, where you can relax after an eventful day, your timing will be perfect. These baths were built in 1896 and today they exude tradition, combined with the comforts of modern spas.
