The world famous Spa and health resort Marienbad (Mariánské Lázně), part of what is known as the West Bohemian Spa Triangle (Carlsbad, Franzensbad, Marienbad) is situated in a valley, surrounded by woods and protected from western and northern winds by mountain ranges.
The natural environment, pure air and the position of this Spa make it one of Czech Republic's foremost Spas. Marienbad is rich in mineral springs and about forty of them are used for therapeutical purposes. The fame of Marienbad treatment is based above all, on a drinking cure using healing spring water rich in free carbon dioxide and mineral salt. The best known is Cross Spring, Rudolph Spring, Carolina Spring and Ferdinand Spring.
About 50 km of paths cross its English parks, inviting for relaxing walks. The impressive architecture of the 19th century is typical for most of the buildings. A number of recunstruction projects have been launched in the past few years to restore them to their original splendour.
Marienbad offers many sporting possibilities (large stadium, several swimming pools, fitness centers, tennis courts and an 18-hole golf course - one of the best in Europe).
