Spa tradition and balneology
Perhaps the most distinctive feature of the Karlovy Vary Region is its spa tradition and balneology whose major potential lies in a famous ‘spa triangle’ comprising Karlovy Vary, Mariánské Lázně and Františkovy Lázně. This area is the second most sought after tourist destination in the Czech Republic, Prague being No. 1. The Karlovy Vary Region is proud of the most significant concentration of spa facilities and venues in the Czech Republic (more than 49% of all spa beds). The region is home to 5 spa resorts: Karlovy Vary, Jáchymov, Mariánské Lázně, Františkovy Lázně and Lázně Kynžvart.
More than two thirds of the guests staying in the region’s accommodation facilities are foreigners, most of them coming from Germany and Russia. Another large group of clients comes from Ukraine, the Netherlands, Austria, China, USA, Slovakia or Israel. Czech guests represent the second largest category of clients. It is the high concentration of spa facilities in the Karlovy Vary Region that brings more than 50% of clients to local accommodation establishments.
