Vridelni kolonada, Karlovy Vary

4.6
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.

    As the other ones, these places are great for a walk and trying of mineral water. So buy a small porcelain cup and walk and try :) This one was a little bit overcrowded by tourists.  more »
