Trip Planner: Europe / Czech Republic / Bohemia / Karlovy Vary Region / Karlovy Vary / Vridelni kolonada
A modern Vridelni kolonada lies like a bridge over the river Teplá and surrounds thermal springs, including a hot geyser that shoots water several meters high. Walk inside the arcade to watch the crowds taking sips of the famed Carlsbad drinking cure, said to be effective against stomach diseases. If you want to drink the water, you need to buy a special cup from one of the souvenir shops. Be careful, though, because the water temperature ranges from 30 to 72 degrees C (86 to 161 degrees F). In addition to springs, you'll find shops selling ceramics and Bohemian glass, plus restaurants and public restrooms. Using our international travel planner, Karlovy Vary attractions like Vridelni kolonada can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

The architecture, however, dates back to a time when the communist view of life was still popular and does not really fit into the image of Bohemianism, which is otherwise so beautifully pronounced in Karlovy Vary. Taste - just like everything.
Раньше этот источник находился в помещении. А теперь его перенесли на улицу и это прекрасно. Можно спокойно посмотреть на него, постоять, подышать. Особенно вечером, когда город спит, а тебе спать не ... more »Previously, this source was indoors. And now he's been moved to the street, and that's fine. You can calmly look at it, stand, breathe. Especially in the evening when the city is asleep and you don't want to sleep. I sat down on the bench and look and breathe. We were in Carlsbad for 5 days, we lived nearby. We used to breathe in the evenings. And oh miracle - we breathed our noses!!! I should have rinsed, but they forgot the cheapie bottle. How good is it that there is such a cozy and sweet place to the heart - the Czech Republic!!!
There are underground tours of the springs! It's in English and cheap! 160ck for a 25 min walk through. The tour could be better though, the guide'a English wasn't so good and she didn't allow for many questions.... Could skip but doesn't hurt to do it either.
Nice place to hide especially when there is a rainy day. There are 3 thermals springs, the hottest in the area (72 Celsius) and the coolest (30 Celsius). There are some souvenirs shops, a toilet (10 kronen per person) and a couple of relaxing chairs. Also there is a coffee shop and if you want to sit and rest your feet for a while you can sit on the marble near the windows; it is warm.
