CARLSBAD AND ATLANTIC

Carlsbad lies in West Bohemia at the confluence of the Teplá River and the Ohře River, about 120 km west of Prague. It is the largest and best-known spa city in the Czech Republic.

Charles IV founded the city in the 14th century. According to the legend, the Emperor had the city built soon after the accidental discovery of thermal springs by his hunting retinue. The spa facilities enjoyed the favour of many aristocratic houses and rich burghers as early as the 16th century. Due to a series of natural disasters, only a few buildings have been preserved from that period. Most architectonic monuments originated in the 18th and the 19th century when the city experiences a „period of abundance“.

Hotel Atlantic Palace Karlovy Vary

Luxury Spa Hotel Atlantic Palace was opened in the early twentieth century, only a few days before the outbreak of the First World War. This listed building is situated in the heart of Karlovy Vary, a stone's throw from the Colonnade at the sight of Stará louka (Old meadow) overlooking the lazily flowing Teplá River. The hotel rooms have a beautiful view of the whole town center, St. Maria Magdalene Church, Theatre Square and the famous mixed forests of Carlsbad.

Our motto "Closer Than You Think ..." perfectly captures both the hotel's location and access of the hotel staff. The Luxury Spa Hotel Atlantic Palace just make you feel at home.
