Vridelni kolonada, Karlovy Vary

4.5
A modern Vridelni kolonada lies like a bridge over the river Teplá and surrounds thermal springs, including a hot geyser that shoots water several meters high. Walk inside the arcade to watch the crowds taking sips of the famed Carlsbad drinking cure, said to be effective against stomach diseases. If you want to drink the water, you need to buy a special cup from one of the souvenir shops. Be careful, though, because the water temperature ranges from 30 to 72 degrees C (86 to 161 degrees F). In addition to springs, you'll find shops selling ceramics and Bohemian glass, plus restaurants and public restrooms.

  • Beautiful kolonada on your walk along the river. The place is full of tourists also in the winter. Recomanded.  more »
  • The colonnade is very modest compared to the Golden Colonnade Marianske Lazne. But still very cute. On the contrary many shops, so walking will not be boring.

  • Was a bit disappointed as was not aware that there is a renovation going on. Usually you have 5 springs to drink from but now there are only 3 open. 32-52-72 degrees Celsius. Also the strongest one that should shoot up 12m is currently closed. Also read that the city has some problems on agreeing how to renowate. Hope they will sort it soon.
  • a beautiful square in the middle of town, surrounded by colorful buildings. around the fountain can be found great examples of stones that become yellow because of the minerals in the water.
  • Drink from B, but not too much
  • In the years 1878-1879 was then in its place built a new cast-iron thermal spring Colonnade in the pseudorenesančním style to a design by Viennese architects Ferdinand Fellner and Hermann Helmer. Already in 1939, but it was scrapped due to corrosion of the colonnade and the other 27 years was replaced by a wooden provizoriem. In the year 1975 was over the Spring opened a new modern glass reinforced concrete, built in functionalist style Colonnade under the project of Ing. Arch. Jaroslav Bran.

  • Unfortunately has been for years due to static problems only partially usable. Especially the real attraction, the geyser with his 12 m high bubble, is not to visit and inactive. Although some wells are still active, but the luster in recent years, not much is left, not to mention the luster of previous years due to the Communist architecture. Anyone who knows the bubble from earlier, will be disappointed.
