Trip Planner: Europe / Czech Republic / Bohemia / Karlovy Vary Region / Karlovy Vary / 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. Using our international travel planner, Karlovy Vary attractions like Vridelni kolonada can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

There are underground tours of the springs! It's in English and cheap! 160ck for a 25 min walk through. The tour could be better though, the guide'a English wasn't so good and she didn't allow for many questions.... Could skip but doesn't hurt to do it either.
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.
