The tradition of classic Karlovy Vary spa treatment is based on a unique natural resource — mineral water whose effects are proven by centuries of practice.
The quality of mineral water is unchanged over the centuries. Most elements of the periodic table are present in Karlovy Vary. More than 40 elements necessary for the human body are analysed here on a regular basis.
Carlsbad mineral water is formed at depths of about 2500 metres under the Earth’s surface. The public can access it in 15 sources that differ from each other by the temperature, composition and the amount of dissolved carbon dioxide. Each source is different and has different effects according to temperature and gas differences. In addition to the positive effect on the entire digestive tract and the locomotor system, it is also a good way to detoxify and cleanse the entire body.
