The unique Castle Spa, located in the heart of Karlovy Vary, is a unique center of traditional spa treatment and is immediately recognized for its original architecture. The historical roots of this treatment facility date back to the period before the First World War, when in 1909 an extensive tender for the selection of construction projects was won by architect Friedrich Ohmann. As a result of his project the Castle Colonnade (Zámecká kolonáda) was built in the years 1911 to 1913.
It was maintained and remained unchanged until 2000, when it underwent major refurbishment and was transformed to become Castle Spa. Friedrich Ohmann’s soul and handiwork remain forever preserved in the form of an ingenious combination of various architectural styles. It is definitely worth noting the stunning antique “rondelle” at the top of the building, which is generally accepted as a hallmark of the Castle Spa.
Uniqueness, successful traditional treatment and relaxation programs put Castle Spa at the forefront of ranking medical centers in the country. One of the eight secrets, all of which are strongly entwined, surrounding Castle Spa, is that it retains a good tradition of spa treatment with the maximum utilization of mineral water.
