Vridelni kolonada, Karlovy Vary

4.4
#1 of 7 in Nature in Karlovy Vary Region
Must see · Hot Spring · Nature / Park
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.

  • Hot Spring Colonnade has been under reconstruction for several years, so the warmest spring in Karlovy Vary is not a long time inside of the colonnade (where originally was), but you can see it...  more »
  • ... travel during the corona-19 pandemic ... there are far too few toilets in the public space, the only toilet that is open to the public is not only more expensive than the tax ... but also dirty...  more »

  • 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.
