DISCOVER THE TOWN OF MARIÁNSKÉ LÁZNĚ

The neoclassical town Marianske Lazne (Marienbad) is located in a beautiful valley in West Bohemia, at altitudes between 567-626 m, surrounded by a forest area in a diameter of approximately 20 km. Gifted with unparalleled natural beauty and more than 150 mineral springs, the once small and unknown town of Bohemia, emerged as one of the best spa towns in Europe with healing mineral water, constituting together with Karlovy Vary and Frantiskovy Lazne, the West Bohemian Spa Triangle.

The locals had discovered the healing properties of the mineral sources that emerged from the center of the wooded valley, since the 16th century. Water composition, however, had not been studied until the 18th century, when -according to historical records- Josef Jan Nehr, physician at the monastery Teplá, proceeded with the chemical analysis of the water sources. He soon discovered the beneficial effects they had on human health.

The man responsible for the development of the region was Karel Kaspar Reitenberger, Abbot of the monastery Teplá, who promoted the construction of thermal infrastructures, often against the wishes of other guild members. With the cooperation of brilliant landscape architect, Vaclav Skalnik, beautiful parks were built, and the area became a natural haven of tranquility. The facilities were built in neoclassical style and featured pavilions, fountains and ponds. The area was improved even more after distances were shortened (railroad creation) between Marianske Lazne and other major cities.
