Get to know the jewel of West Bohemia, Karlovy Vary, the spa town known globally for the thermal baths scattered around the city.
As well as its spas, Karlovy Vary is also famous for its International Film Festival, Moser glassware, and the Becherovka herbal liquor.
The tour meets at the Powder Tower leaves the centre of Prague at 8:30 am heading northwest towards Karlovy Vary, making our first stop at a viewpoint, taking in views of the spa town, and orientating ourselves before diving in, metaphorically and perhaps physically, to try its curative waters.
The tour will take in the impressive geysers which spring from underground, forming a 14-metre tall fountain of water, the striking colonnades for which the town is famous, sampling the spa waters which emanate from their numerous fountains, the headquarters of the Knights of the Maltese Cross, and Mozart's house.
All the while your expert local guide will fill you in on the history of the places you visit, the love Holy Roman Emperor Charles IV had for the town and the sites he founded, the first resort built in the 18th century, its expansion over the coming years and its modern role. Today the town is known for its world-famous Moser glassware, and the tour includes a visit to the Moser factory and perhaps you can sample Becherovka herbal liquor as you take advantage of free time at the end of the tour to explore on your own.
The tour then returns to Prague, leaving you at the same point where it began at around 6 pm.
