Water - the Cornerstone of Life and Health


Strengthening the Immune System at the Castle Spa



One of the most unique and most authentic places of Karlovy Vary is undoubtedly the Castle Spa, where traditional Karlovy Vary treatments, proven with time, and the latest technologies of modern spas meet. The Castle Spa becomes a piece of every visitors life, here you can relax in a pleasant, relaxing environment, unwind thanks to the many procedures and gain strength for hectic days to come.

The best is to dive into water with your body and mind. Each person already spent a lot of time in water, in the womb of his or her mother, and therefore water is absolutely natural to us. It can calm the mind and helps cure. At the Castle Spa among others, you can experience firsthand one of the oldest hydrotherapies - Kneipp baths.

The baths consist of alternating hot (40°C - 42°C) and cold (10°C - 12°C) water. The most commonly used form is walking baths, where you step into individual pools with hot and cold water reaching below the knees. Always start in the pool with hot water, where our body develops thermo power, and then enter the cold water, which removes this energy. Do not expect anything fancy, it is an active treading in water tanks with gravel at the bottom. After regular visits to Kneipp baths you will certainly notice a remarkable improvement in your health status and immune system.

Specifically, Kneipp baths support the tissue metabolism, support blood circulation and relieve joints, they have a quite demonstrably positive effect on the blood circulation and strengthen the immune system. Further more they help during discomforts accompanying the cold legs syndrome and post-traumatic conditions of the lower extremities.

This special kind of therapy is named after the German priest and healer Sebastian Kneipp, who as a patient with tuberculosis got to know the book "The Healing Power of Fresh Water", and thanks to regular baths in the river and walking barefoot in the morning dew, he quite soon recovered.

Etiquette - Smart Casual


Although the written and unwritten rules of behavior are lurking at every step, It is beyond doubt that all our knowledge begins with experience and this is why we continue with yet another informative article for our regular column on Etiquette. For now, we look at the matter of proper attire.

The age-old truth that "dress makes a man" can also be recognised in a well-known Czech song. And this truth may never go out of style. Today there is probably no party, social event or restaurant that does not require a Dress Code. Let's not waste time and take a detailed look at the most widely represented dress code; Smart Casual.

It is quite a broad term, but simply means that your clothes may be rather informal, but not lose their elegance. If you love denim then wear it for your leisure activities. Thus we suggest that for neither men nor women is it acceptable to wear jeans, sportswear or any type of sports shoes.

To comply with the requirement of Smart Casual, ladies are preferably attired in a skirt, dress or pants in arbitrary cuts and colors, but within tolerable limits, mini-skirts are definitely not suitable. Adjustments to the overall appearance are made with the use of appropriate accessories, everything in moderation. For example, if a lady is wearing a prominent dress, then fine and discreet accessories should be selected and vice versa, in case of a simple dress then pronounced makeup and accessories are acceptable.

When it comes to men, they can decide whether to dress in social trousers or something like Chinos. Of course, we repeat once again, an emphatic NO to wearing denim. You can leave your tie or bow at home, it is not needed because Smart Casual is not a strictly formal affair. Men can complete their attire with a jacket and a shirt with subtle colors and patterns, and finally shoes with laces or moccasins.

If you have mastered this urbane and charming style known as Smart Casual, then we welcome you to all the restaurants and bars at the hotel Carlsbad Plaza, where the dress code is part of the hotel's internal culture.
