Vridelni kolonada, Karlovy Vary

4.6
#1 of 39 in Nature in Czech Republic
Hot Spring Nature / Park
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.

  • This location are the hot springs, you get a mug in a gift shop or "banking" has many gorgeous models. After you make the path of 15 fonts that vary the taste and temperature of the water, only the last good to drink hahaha the other are very notable, some tastes like blood. But it is worth visiting and take all from experience

  • You can feel the unique energy of the water especially in the hot spring Colonnade (Vřídelní Colonnade), beneath the geyser of the best-known source called Vřídlo. The mineral water springs with a temperature of over 73 ° C from a depth of over 12 metres. When visiting this colonnade you should miss the exhibition in the old basement. There you will learn more about the rare micro-organisms of the region and how the mineral water can be used for the rock formation.
