Czech spas are well-respected; they have a long-standing tradition and illustrious history. Especially throughout the 19th and early 20th Centuries, they were among the most sought-after in Europe. Their past clients include royalty (Czar Peter the Great, King Edward VII of England, Austrian Emperor Franz Josef I, and others), composers (e.g. Bach, Beethoven, Brahms, Chopin, Liszt, and Wagner), writers (Casanova, Goethe, Schiller, and Mark Twain) and other great minds of the day (Sigmund Freud, I.P. Pavlov, and T.A. Edison.)
After 40 years of communism, Czech spa companies were privatized in the early 1990s and quickly adapted to the new market conditions. Buildings were restored, facilities upgraded, and new programs introduced. Today, Czech spas welcome visitors from around the world, including an increasing number of Americans.
Here are few good reasons to spend
your vacation at a Czech spa:
Czech spas are good for you! Whether you opt for the full spa package or just a hotel stay with a few massages thrown in, your body will thank you. (So will your soul.)
Czech spas are beautiful. Without exception, Czech spa towns boast beautiful, historic architecture and lush natural settings. Some are more urban than others, but all are an aesthetic experience unto itself.
They are affordable. A week at a Czech spa can cost less than a weekend at an American one. (Of course, no-holds-barred luxury is also available to those who want it — if you wish to bathe in champagne, you can, and we have caviar too.)
