Františkovy Lázně


The spa was founded in honour of the Emperor Franz Joseph I in the late 18th century. But the “miraculous springs” were already helping to cure diseases a few centuries earlier. Franzensbad is known for the treatment of female infertility and other female diseases. The spa is the third point of the “Spa Triangle”, which also includes Karlovy Vary and Mariánské Lázně.

This small spa town is full of quiet promenades, parks and greenery and it also has a selection of important spa monuments, especially in the Empire and Classical style.

Attractions in the town and its environs:

  • The Municipal Museum
  • The St. Jacob Cathedral
  • A strange-looking observation tower
  • The Protestant Church
  • The Church of the Holy Cross Exaltation
  • Aquaforum (a swimming pool complex)
