Why bother to see the bad state of Czech when you can go to a
small idyllic Czech town made just for you, though this town has
nothing to do with Czech except that it is on the Czech ground.
Karlovy Vary is architecturally almost as interesting as Prague
but in a far more compact form. Actually differences are quite
small, as even a river goes through the town.
There are two streets in Karlovy Vary that you like to walk,
going along banks. Stay on these streets and you can leave the
place without knowing what life is. If you dare to take off from
these streets you’ll see that there might be life after
souvenir shops. They have put huge amounts of money to repair
the town and that money hasn’t come from locals. Do you
know guy named Ibrahimovits who a while ago bought some soccer
team from England? Do you know where he got the money to buy that
team? Well, I don’t know either, but with same kind of I-don’t-know-where
money bought Karlovy Vary. Nowadays Russians own 70% of Karlovy
Well, they haven’t spent their money for nothing. Karlovy
Vary is nice bath town in the middle of nature. You should step
aside from the main street and explore the near by hills from
where you’ll see Karlovy Vary from very different aspect.
Karlovy Vary is on the border of Germany and that’s why
it is full of German tourists licking many litres of the bad tasting
mineral water that city springs offer. They use these funny looking
cups that you can buy from every souvenir shop in town. There
are many springs around Karlovy Vary and some of them are over
70 degrees of Celsius warm, so you should prepare your self with
teabags to calm down the taste of fart.
At least the Russians have left something nice to the town. Karlovy
Vary is in excellent shape compared to other small towns in Czech.
The most beautiful building in the town is the fairy tail like
Orthodox Church of St. Peter and Paul with nice Russian stylish
onion domes. Prise level of Karlovy Vary was a nice surprise,
as it was lower then in Prague despite of German tourists. Drinking
the fart water was free but then on the other hand they take double
prise when you wanted to give it back to the nature. Czechs really
know their way with money. Karlovy Vary is nice town for one-day
trip and in the evening you can go to spas, which are nowadays
more medical like then amusement. In two days you’ll get
bored and should go to explore the ‘wilderness’ of
