We have experienced Manitou and the Dead Sea, since we are here, we are going to Karlovy Vary to try out the waters. We have been looking online as to where we can float in the water, but there only seem to be spas who do all kinds of treatment, some with Dr.'s prescriptions. They also drink the water.
We arrive at the tourist office and ask where we go to float in the water
We leave and go to see the colonnades, these are fancy walkways with pillars that have little fountains where the thermal water comes out. People are walking along with fancy china cups. The handles are really spouts to drink the water from. They go to the water taps, fill their cups and stroll along drinking the water. The water is warm and at some stops hot water.
We bought a very tiny cup and tried the water. I got an instant head ache so didn’t have any more. Len seemed to enjoy it.
The town is very beautiful, lots of fancy painted buildings, beautiful flowers, and flower boxes. Lots and lots of restaurants for all those tourists walking around with their cups drinking the water
There are also an incredible number of spas treating digestive system diseases, metabolism defects, diseases of the locomotive organs and many other complaints.
We enjoyed our stop even though it wasn’t what we were expecting. We have a cute little china cup for our Christmas tree decoration.
We are close to the German border so we use all our Krouns for diesel and leave Czech Republic. It most certainly is a beautiful country along the west side. We passed fields and fields of poppyflower heads. It must have been beautiful when they were all in bloom!
