Not far from the historical Moravian city of Olomouc, the spa town of Teplice nad Bečvou occupies a landscape of woods and forests. For almost five centuries people have known about the beneficial properties of the local mineral-rich springs, and the excellent outcomes produced by local spa procedures are common knowledge. You can spend an undisturbed break interspersed with high-quality spa procedures and pampering sessions in the wellness centre, as well as heading deep underground to discover some wonderful dripstone caves.
As early as 1553 the lord of the local estate had a stone reservoir created, into which pipes diverted the most reliable mineral springs from the surrounding area. This mineral-rich water containing amounts of carbon dioxide is used today to treat issues with the circulatory system, cardiovascular disease, metabolism problems and muscular-skeletal complaints. Children are also brought here to treat diseases of the skin.
