In case you plan to visit Prague, I am sure you are getting all kinds of guide books, maps and tips what to do and what to skip. I suggest you get A Traveller’s Companion to Prague, a book written by a Prague born Jan Kaplan, a Czech filmmaker and writer living in London since 1968. You will read about the turbulent history of the golden city in the heart of Europe from the very beginning when the Princess Libuse predicted the future of the Czech nation through the dark dates of Nazis in Czech and Moravian Protectorate up to the date when a former dissident Vaclav Havel became the first President of Czechoslovakia (today Czech Republic).
Founded in 1793 as the village of Emperor Franz of Austria, Frantiskovy lazne is a pitoresque spa town close to Cheb and Marienbad not far from German border. Initially a rural spa with a single spring known as Františkův pramen (Franz’s Spring), a wooden colonnade, a few spa houses and a Social House soon became one of the most sought-after European spa resorts. The historical centre is surrounded by number of English parks and you can find a building with a plaque comemorating Johann Wolfgang Goethe’s stays in Frantiskovy lazne.
The balneological treatment is based on traditional, scientifically attested treatment methods. Diseases treated in Františkovy Lázně include for example heart and blood circulation diseases and diseases of the locomotive organs.
