Medical spas and rehabilitation in the Czech Republic

The ‘Medical Spa’ - a health, relaxation and rehabilitation centre which can help conditions from rheumatism, disc prolapse, to circulatory and nervous system problems - has existed in the Czech Republic for well over a hundred years. Czech spas were developed to help visitors improve their health, so historically the focus was on addressing a specific medical condition (such as allergies or pulmonary complaints) and a spa physician would recommend a regimen of tailor made treatments.

Many Czech spas rank among the oldest in Europe and their past clients include royalty (King Edward VII of England, Czar Peter the Great, Austrian Emperor Franz Josef I and Empress Maria Theresa), composers (Bach, Beethoven, Chopin), writers (Casanova, Goethe) and other great minds of the day (Freud, Pavlov, Edison).

There are a total of 37 spa towns in the Czech Republic, the strength of which lies in their natural healing springs, be these mineral springs, gases or peloids. Whether you visit the world famous Karlovy Vary, Mariánské Lázně, Františkovy lázně or one of the others, you will receive world-class care, which the Czech spas are famous for. Each spa specialises in a different part of the human body and you will certainly find a procedure, which is designed just for you.

Combining a holiday with a form of health treatment is nothing new - for over two thousand years people have been drawn towards taking restful breaks to rejuvenate, invigorate and heal.
