Charming street, nice at night as well as during the day. Lots of shops, hotels, restaurants. Try some mineral water along the way. Not very tasty, but supposedly healthy

Depending which side of the river you use you will either walk along this Stara louka street or Nova louka street. Both are very pretty with beautiful houses, we walked one way there and one way back.

Carlsbad is definitely a great city and very interesting. I have been there for one day and enjoyed to feel the culture, drink the thermal water and go for a walk around the beautiful houses everywhere.

there are different shops along both sides of the street, such as fashion, jewellery, souvenior, etc. It is interesting to walk around, and take pics. The view of the street is perfect. It is also quiet and relaxing.

It’s worth a visit it for historical reasons only. Used to be one of Europe’s top spas for the upper classes and its former glory is still visible in grand architecture transplanted from Berlin, Vienna, and Paris. Alas, aristocracy is here no more. It has now become a playground for snobs coming from former Soviet republics. No embargo here. High-end... More
