So Karlovy Vary is a small spa town in Western Czech named after its most prized accomplishment, Carlsbad beer.  In a country where they take their beer seriously (and Czech beer is seriously good), this is a town that is quite boastful for contributing their own brand to the world.  It is basically a small town with a strip of expensive spas along the river.  In these spas you can get a massage, whirlpool bath, mud bath or any other odd regenerative beauty treatment.  As someone carrying the Y-chromosome, I was pretty much interested in a massage and maybe a little exercise.  They have pools on top of the mountains where you can look down on the town while swimming.  Hard to beat that for relaxation.

As luck, and my budget would have it, I could only go to one place and didn't get the scenic swim.  I did get to swim in their little fish bowl with some Japanese businessmen, and we were treated to a light show.  And the street with all the spas was scenic enough for me.  It looked like a street inside Disneyworld.
