Jachymov is situated in a deep wooded valley in the foothills of the Krusne Mountains. This rugged landscape provides breathtaking views at any time of year. At the beginning of the 20th century a rich supply of radon was found in the former silver mines which lead to the foundation of the spa. The treatments on offer here are associated with discoveries made by Marie Curie and one of the springs is named after her.
In the town and surrounding area there are tennis courts, a bowling, fitness centres and also downhill and cross-country skiing and cycling trails into the Krusne Mountains.
