Trip Františkovy lázně

From the heritage point of view, Františkovy Lázně boasts the most intact ensemble of spa buildings in the West Bohemian Spa Triangle.

Františkovy Lázně was officially founded in 1793 and the place was named after Emperor Franz (František) III. However, the local healing springs were already well-known in the Middle Ages. Although built for the most part in the period of Classicism (like Mariánské Lázně), Františkovy Lázně has an entirely different urban composition. The core of the spa town has an orthogonal plan view with a network of parallel streets, densely lined with Classicist, Empire and Historicist buildings. From the very beginning, construction efforts in the spa town have respected the idea of architectural unity. This urban unit is surrounded by a large park with the individual spa buildings (Classicist for the most part) over the springs. More recent parts of the town, consisting of well-designed historicist spa houses surround the park. The complex includes all types of buildings a spa resort of pan-European importance needs: hotels and guest houses, pavilions over the springs, the colonnade, large spa buildings, a church, theatre, small structural objects and sculptures.
