The Czech Republic has a long-standing history of spa therapy dating back to 14th century. Located in central Europe, the country is blessed with mineral and thermal springs that have curative, therapeutic, healing and relaxative effects on the body and soul. The in-depth understanding of mineral and thermal waters and the effects they have on our biological systems, stress levels, and physical and mental well-being have allowed spa specialists to tailor effective spa programmes to specific needs.
In late 20th century, after the fall of the Iron Curtain, the Czech Republic experienced a boom in the Spa Industry (foreign investments, vast renovation projects, new developments, etc.). Today, having a spa holiday in the Czech Republic and taking full advantage of the top-quality health, wellness, beauty and relaxation programmes offered by the Spa and Wellness hotels is more popular than ever. The most famous and most visited Spa towns are: Karlovy Vary, Marianske Lazne (aka Marienbad), Frantiskovy Lazne (aka Franzensbad), Teplice and Luhacovice.
Based on the long tradition of personal care, local spa sanatoriums offer a wide range of spa packages that give you great value for money. Complex Treatments are spa programmes designed to target specific health problems related to our immune system, digestive system, metabolism, respiratory tract, cardio-vascular system, kidney and urinary tract, locomotor system, etc., as well as to have a curative, convalescent effect on the whole body. Wellness Programmes are designed to improve our physical and mental well-being and have more of an anti-stress and relaxation effect on the body and mind. Various beauty programmes include anti-cellulite, body shaping and detoxification programmes to make you feel and look younger, fresher and brighter.
And by going on a spa holiday to Czechia you are not only getting the spa experience. The Czech Republic is a culturally rich country with medieval castles, magnificent historical monuments and ancient sites. Almost all of the spa hotels offer rich cultural tours around the country, should you wish to visit these places. The picturesque countryside offers great opportunities for walking and cycling and the delicious traditional cuisine and warm welcome of local people will greatly contribute to you having an unforgettable spa holiday experience in one of the most popular spa destinations in Europe.
And last but not least, Czechia still remains an affordable spa destination. In the current economic climate we all have to tighten our belts. Spa owners recognise this and offer various spa deals while budget airlines offer cheap flights to Prague, Brno, Karlovy Vary and neighbouring Vienna and Bratislava.
