Karlovy Vary celebrates its 650th anniversary

Legend about the foundation of Karlovy Vary

Once upon a time Charles IV went for a hunting expedition to the woods in the hilly region and through valleys where hot springs rise nowadays. During the hunt, one of his dogs started chasing a game. While chasing it, it fell into a pool with springing hot water. The dog howled in pain to call the hunters. They heard the howling and rushed to help supposing that the dog was hurt by the chased game.

They were amazed seeing the dog. They came up to the pool, pulled the dog out and tried the hot water which had scared the dog before. They told Emperor Charles IV about the incident who together with his retinue went to see the place and admired the extraordinary beauty of the nature's work.

In the presence of his doctors, the wise monarch noted that such hot water may heal various serious illnesses and is very helpful and recuperative. Then he poured the water on his sore leg and felt relief and improvement. It made him happy and he ordered that the location should be settled and houses should be built around the spring.
