About the town
"I have travelled through the whole of India, Ceylon, all spa places of Europe, but nowhere was I so spellbound as by the poetry of beautiful nature as here in Mariánské Lázně."
English king Edward VII, 1907
Mariánské Lázně is undoubtedly one of the most charming spa locations in the Czech Republic. Its spa history is not long, but all the more interesting for that. In a place which was still dominated by swamps and impenetrable forests in the 18th century, an elegant town with modern buildings and of large public interest originated.
The spa atmosphere at the turn of the 19th century has remained conserved until today. You can get a taste of its atmosphere in the section: Fragments and news items. You can learn more about the important personalities who regularly visited Mariánské Lázně in the section: Guest book.
Mariánské Lázně has nowadays returned to spa and tourism as its dominant industry, and to preserve these unique natural conditions, there has been limited industrial production.
The town offers its visitors numerous options for sport and cultural fulfilment.
