Return from Prague more attractive than when you left home
What’s the best way of enjoying a holiday in “Golden Prague”? After your tour of the historical centre you can treat your fatigued frame to some top-notch pampering at your hotel.

The Four Seasons Hotel also offers premier care such as massage using sea salt and thermal mud, which can help in the removal of cellulite. The wellness centre at the Mandarin Oriental hotel is a true oasis of rest and relaxation where you can select from many deluxe spa packages.
Relaxing massage and exotic rituals
Perfect moments of rest and relaxation for body and soul aren’t just available in Prague and the Czech spa towns. A girlie break is also possible at Galatea in Mladá Boleslav. This could include pleasant back and neck massage, cosmetic procedures and makeup sessions, a private sauna and a whirlpool, as well as enjoyable evenings involving bottles of Moravian wine. Fancy having your makeup done like a film star? Then be sure to enrol at the cosmetics school and other wellness programmes at the Svatá Kateřina resort in Počátky in the Vysočina Region.
