Full description
Escape the hustle and bustle of Prague and enjoy a full-day private tour to the beautiful spa town of Karlovy Vary in western Bohemia. Following a pick-up from your hotel at 08:00, travel by air-conditioned minibus through the stunning countryside of Bohemia. Relax with the on board Wi-Fi and cool water refreshments. Stop at the ruins of a Gothic castle above the village of Andělská Hora on Angel Mountain. First mentioned in the year 1402, the castle pre-dates the 15th century village in the foothills. During its glory days - and before it was burned down in the Thirty Years’ War - the castle was a favourite place for the writer Goethe and other luminaries. See the unique church of the Holy Trinity, built between 1698 and 1712 by the Italian architect, Allipradi. Continue to the Moser glass factory, founded by Ludwig Moser in 1893. Learn about their famous glassware, sold around the world to such notables as the court of the British king, Edward VII, the shah of Persia, and the emperor of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, Franz Josef I. Purchase some unique souvenirs in the gift shop before your departure. Next, drive to the spa town of Karlovy Vary, founded in 1370 after King Charles IV stumbled upon a hot stream while out hunting. Now one of the best known and popular wellness resorts in the Czech Republic, Karlovy Vary offers regional specialties such as the Becherovka liquor produced from herbs. Marvel at the monuments of the picturesque town center, and see some of the spa colonades, including the hot spring at Vřídlo. Enjoy lunch in a local restaurant.
