Create an itinerary including Vridelni kolonada
A modern Vridelni kolonada lies like a bridge over the river Teplá and surrounds thermal springs, including a hot geyser that shoots water several meters high. Walk inside the arcade to watch the crowds taking sips of the famed Carlsbad drinking cure, said to be effective against stomach diseases. If you want to drink the water, you need to buy a special cup from one of the souvenir shops. Be careful, though, because the water temperature ranges from 30 to 72 degrees C (86 to 161 degrees F). In addition to springs, you'll find shops selling ceramics and Bohemian glass, plus restaurants and public restrooms.

  • Singing fountain, great variety of market stalls, made this a colourful visit. Fountain was a bit cheesey.

  • This is apparently where it all starts as you begin the journey to taste and feel the healing of the thermal springs. I am not sure about all of that, but I did drink out of the dozen or so hot...

  • I have been visiting the hot spring colonnade for many years and over the years it changed a lot and also some aspects didn't change at all. They always sold items here, like mineral water drinking cups, petrified roses, porcelain, and glass. Now there are a high number of stands with cheap Chinese stuff. The entire atmosphere was not pleasant and I got dirty feel from it. The colonnade used to be light, with clean glass and a lot of plants inside. There is no entrance fee and the colonnade closes at 6pm.
  • Nice place to hide especially when there is a rainy day. There are 3 thermals springs, the hottest in the area (72 Celsius) and the coolest (30 Celsius). There are some souvenirs shops, a toilet (10 kronen per person) and a couple of relaxing chairs. Also there is a coffee shop and if you want to sit and rest your feet for a while you can sit on the marble near the windows; it is warm.
