CZECH REPUBLIC ~Karlovy Vary~

Lovely card with may great views of the world famous spa town of Karlov Vary (CZ-187383)...Thanks a lot Eva!!

With beautiful 2010 Gismonda-Alfons Mucha stamp.
The world famous spa town of Karlovy Vary, was founded in 1350 by the Czech King and Holy Roman Emperor Charles IV. It is historically famous for its hot springs (13 main springs, about 300 smaller springs).
Karlovy Vary lies in a green valley of the river Teplá (meaning "Warm") and its setting alone gives it an atmosphere of beauty and peace. The town has been recapturing its former glory with its Baroque and Art Nouveau buildings being restored.
The town's visitors over the years have included Casanova, Ludwig van Beethoven, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Franz Kafka, Alphonse Mucha and many representatives of the world film industry who come to Karlovy Vary.
