Full description
Enjoy a full-day guided trip to Karlovy Vary, the most renowned and historical Czech spa town, with a visit to Moser Glassworks and the incredible reliquary of St. Maurus in Bečov Castle. 

Travel from Prague for about 2 hours in a comfortable air-conditioned minibus to Karlovy Vary. This town was founded as early as 1370 by the mighty and powerful Czech emperor Charles IV and has 13 main hot springs and more than 300 smaller springs. Visit the town center’s ornamental spa buildings before visiting the most powerful spring, Vřídlo, which rises from a depth of 3000 meters and reaches a temperature of 73°C.  

Then, visit the headquarters and museum of Moser Glassworks, one of the most famous glass manufacturers in Europe, founded in 1857. See breathtaking samples of contemporary and historical art glass exhibits and see how these articles are made. 

After lunch in a charming local restaurant, continue on to the castle of Loket nad Ohří, a stunning medieval place that has been underestimated and forgotten. Admire the massive castle and the unique locations that became popular again through their appearance in the James Bond film “Casino Royale”.

Finally, it’s time for the highlight of the tour. St. Maurus’s reliquary (a container for relics), housed inside Bečov Castle, is considered one of the most important historical items in the country and a priceless part of Czech cultural heritage. This is truly a sight to behold. 

After admiring this priceless piece of history, you’ll return to Prague for about 7:00 PM.
