Travel Blogs from Karlovy Vary
This is a beautiful Spa town . The hotels are spectacular , perched on cliffs .painted in beautiful colours Most were built 1880 when taking the waters was popular , but has been a spa town for hundreds of years .
There are many fountains of hot water for people to drink . They recommend that you use a teapot shaped cup to sip the water as you walk slowly .
They eh all looked silly , but the cup vendors happy .
there is a river flowing ...
... absolutely fantastic. They also served complimentary wine and continuously refilled it throughout the meal.
Tonight we will spend the rest of the evening in the lounge meeting more of our fellow passengers. I am definitely the youngest one on the boat- probably by about 20 years. I get the feeling I stand out quite a bit but that doesn't bother me.
Tomorrow is a tour of mid-evil Nuremberg, then at lunch we sail towards Regensberg!
... skills and who taught us about Czech food & culture. And who additionally served as great translators. The trip finished off with a visit to a town on the way home for lunch. The town square was eerily deserted on a Sunday afternoon, however we did manage to find a nice pizza and pasta place for lunch to finish off what was a great weekend escaping the city and enjoying the beautiful natural surroundings of Bohemia.
... all day ;-)
But to be fair the town was a magnificient little czech beauty with its picturesque buldings painted red/ yellow/ green and pink. Beautiful architecture really.
We at least started the tour with good old Becherovka brewerie tour which included 3 morning shots to wake us up. That was rough haha!
In the end we ended up sitting in a park bathing in sun, enjoying the +10 degrees and drinking good cheap czech brews.
... tower is at the height of 25 meters and can be also reached by an elevator; however, we preferred to stretch our legs on its 150 steps. We could even enter the tower without any additional fee and the view was really fantastic since the surrounding of Karlovy Vary is full of green woods.
On the way back we passed by two churches - Church of St. Mary Magdalene (catholic) and Church of St. Peter and Paul (orthodox).
The strangest thing ...
