A perfect day in Františkovy Lázně
Here are our ideas for you, how to create an unforgettable day in Františkovy Lázně.
Focus on your Inner and Outer self
The town of Františkovy Lázně was created to support health, boost the body's immune system and to re-discover one’s life energy and zest for life. The town is set within green emerald parks, which directly encourage you not only to take peaceful walks with a drink of healing mineral waters, but also to enjoy your daily morning yoga session or great cardio work outs. The morning air and the unique microclimate of the forest parks will charge you perfectly and prepare you for everything what in new day awaits you.
Try out new things
We recommend trying out the unique combination of natural resources of Františkovy Lázně and indulging in traditional healing balneo procedures such as mineral baths and peat wraps. Františkovy Lázně is proud of the fact that it is the oldest peat spa in the world and that all the natural resources used for spa treatments - peat, mineral springs as well as carbon dioxide gas - come only from local sources.
Trip or a coffee and a cake in the Park Café..?
After lunch, nutritionally balanced and tailor-made by spa nutritionists and experts, it's time for an active relaxation programme. Enthusiastic hikers cyclists, young and young in spirit, will enjoy themselves in Františkovy Lázně and the surrounding area. If you don't want to go on a demanding round trip, you can set off on comfortable so-called heart-shaped routes, through parks and take a break in one of the coffee shops along the way.
Near Františkovy Lázně is the Soos National Nature Reserve with unique mofettes - mud volcanoes where pure carbon dioxide bubbles out of the earth. From there it's just a short way to Komorní Hůrka - the youngest Quaternary volcano which is part of the Czech-Bavarian Egeria Geopark. Here enthusiastic amateur geologists ar invited to explore in the footsteps of J.W. Goethe, who conducted study research here in 1806-1822. Lovers of history and romance can visit nearby Seeberg Castle. Its half – timbered tower granary in the forecourt are dedicated to the folk culture, agriculture and crafts of Egerland in the 19th century.
Playing in the water or from the Green to Tee
Tired muscles and mind are best relaxed in Aquaforum, a complex with indoor and outdoor pools, hot tubs and saunas. Alternatively there is a beautiful 18-hole golf course with a total length of 6561 m in the picturesque surroundings of the Halštrov Nature Reserve, only 6 km from Františkovy Lázně.
Basking in the evening sunlight
In the soft light of the evening sun, after a day full of new experiences, you can relax on the terrace of restaurants and wine bars on the main promenade. Let the peaceful atmosphere of the world of yellow and white spa houses, the colonnade and music pavilions impress you. You can close your eyes and imagine yourself back in the 19th century when musicians and writers such as J. Strauss or M. E. Eschenbach walked through the same places.
Evening in the Theatre
Theatre and an evening in the Spa town is one of the best combinations and cures. Spend your evening with music or immerse in the drama or cry with laughter. Emotions are good for you!
Take a night ride in our special Orient Express and be entchanted by the night lights of the small spa town. Listen to the stories while you sip on champagne and nibble on small refreshments. Enjoy feeling good after a lovely day, before going back to your accommodation to sleep soundly. Stay well and serene.
