Karlovy Vary is the Czech Republic’s most visited spa resort, though probably not as glamorous and famous as it once was in the middle of the 14th century. The city was discovered by Charles IV while he was hunting deer, and later in 1522 Dr Payer of Loket set out the properties of the waters in a medical treatise, and their fame began to spread. By the end of the 16th century there were more than 200 spa buildings, but the town’s present appearance dates mainly from the 19th century.
