Overall Guide : The main tourist attractions in Karlovy Vary are St. Andrew’s Church, The Municipal Theatre, and the Mlýnská kolonáda. Since the city lies at the foothills of the picturesque Krušné Mountain, the surrounding forest abounds in hiking trails. Other than the healing... more waters, the town is also known for its rich culture. The most famous of the festivals here are the Karlovy Vary International Film Festival, Mozart and Karlovy Vary Music Festival, International Festival of Tourism Films, Dvořák’s Karlovy Vary Autumn Festival and International Jazz Festival. The best buys in Karlovy Vary are the famous Moser Glass, the Karlsbad Wafers, the china, the thermal salt, the renowned herbal liquor Becherovka and of course the Mattoni bottled mineral water. The most important fact to keep in mind while travelling to Karlovy Vary is that the spa season is only between the 1st of May and the 31st of November.
Overall rating 5
Overall Guide : Beautiful, but becomes a bit boring after 4-5 days, not much happening place. Most of the shops close at 6:00 pm, some of the restaurants close at 21.00. There are some pubs that run till mid-night though, but mostly have... more elderly crows.
Not to be missed Nova Louka , Moser Glass Museum , Jan Becher Museum
