Just a lovely area to visit with lots of wonderful old building to look at and in a wonderful relaxed atmosphere. It really was such a pleasure to meander in this great city and take in the local area. But make sure you visit the spa, the caves and going up the vanicular railway where you will find a wonderful... More

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

All pedestrian area, with good shopping and small places to eat. The Tepla river runs through here and the hot spring waters are flowing at various locations along the street. Touristy, but a fun walk.

We visited Karlovy Vary on a day trip. It is generally very picturesque. Especially this street, "stands out". It has a lot of shops, cafes and restaurants very beautiful, unfortunately a little more expensive compared to other parts of the town but it worths to make a promenade and have a coffee. The filming of the James Bond movie "Casino... More

We took a trip on the Hop-ON-OFF bus which gave us a free one day trip to Karlovy Vary as a bonus. It was a commercially sponsored tour, but the visit at the jewellery only took little less than a hour out of the 8 hour tour. Karlovy Vary is fantastic , you can really feel it's a spa town....

If you a walking away from the centre, towards Hotel Pupp, you have to walk along this pedestrian street. Beautiful architecture and a variety of stores and restaurants that range in pricing. Do not remember the place, but had a fantastic dinner at a place along here after finding debating for 20mins on where to go. Most restaurants leave a... More
