“A novelty more than anything.”
Reviewed 15 March 2014

OK so the town has numerous springs and the stalls and shops are there to rip people off into buying one of the fancy cups (which I did) but after a couple of tastes the novelty wears off and you wish you hadn't spend a fiver on a cup. The taste of the water is foul, which of course is normal for this sort of water, but people obviously believe in the marketing as many seem to guzzle litres of the stuff!

The colonnades look very nice and the geyser is interesting for half a second. My advice is to take some pictures of the architecture around the colonnades as opposed to drinking metallic spring water in a tourist trap!

“Fun!”
Reviewed 1 March 2014 via mobile

Very cloudy and cold day to explore but it was fun. Made it to each of the springs and tasted all of them. Yeah, not very many of them were tasty but it was fun to try a sip or two. I love my drinking cup and the hot waters helped to keep my hands warm.
Great city area to stroll around and window shop.
It felt like a cross between the Sulpher rock in Platt National Park in Oklahoma and Hot Springs National Park in Arkansas. Glad to have had the experience.
Also it's an easy day trip from Prague.

“Drinking the waters”
Reviewed 17 February 2014

Very interesting opportunity to drink the healing waters. (but the taste...yuk!) Beautiful pavilion, along the river, and open fountains of different temperatures from the natural springs.

“hot and good”
Reviewed 21 January 2014

very relaxing n fun place. Almost everyone is sipping hot water from special cups and wandering around. The temperature of the water is written on each fountain. While drinking water you can also enjoy eating the Oplatky Wafers which have a bunch of flavors.
