Prague is far from the only first-class travel destination in the Czech Republic—there are many beautiful spa towns scattered throughout the country worth an entire trip. See below for some of the best. Karlovy Vary
Easily the most famous spa town in the Czech Republic, Karlovy Vary, apart from being a wonderful resort year round, is home to two national institutions: The Karlovy Vary International Film Festival (the country’s largest and most prestigious), and the distillery that manufactures Becherovka, a distinctly Czech liquor flavored with anise seed, cinnamon, and a secret mixture of herbs and spices that can only be described as "Christmas in a bottle."
Established in the middle of the 12th century, Trebon is home to less than 9,000 people, but it is visited by many, many more. Tourism is the primary industry for the town and the surrounding region. If you’re looking for something more than rest and relaxation, mark your calendar for the International Festival of Animated Films, which screens in Trebon each spring.
Frantiskovy Lazne (Franzensbad in German) is a world-famous spa town. Its dark recent history (as with many places in the former Sudetenland, the town’s German population was forcibly expelled in 1945) is overshadowed by the picturesque surroundings. The mineral water in its carbonic baths is said to have healing properties (particularly for the cardiovascular system), as are its mud treatments. The spa system was in fact the first peat pulp bath in the world, and many of its original pools are still in operation.
