“Victorian Architecture at it's frothiest”
Reviewed 21 April 2014

The Viridelni Kolonada is one of several colonnades built around the hot springs in Karlovy Vary. Lace and wedding cakes come to mind as you look at this piece of architecture. The colonnades are built to allow you to stroll in a covered area while taking the waters. Foul tasting, yes, but hot and purportedly medicinal. Note the mineral build-up around the springs, and you get a sense of the origin of the taste in the water. It is lovely to sit on the benches in the adjacent park, breathing in the details of this structure.

“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!
