Konstantinovy Lazne Spa
Konstantinovy Lazne is among the smallest spa resorts in the Czech Republic. The village named Konstantinovy Lazne has a population of less than 1,000. It is located in Tachov District, which is part of Plzen Region. It is 40 km to the north-west from Plzen (Pilsen) or about 100 km to the west from Prague.
It is not far from the better known spa towns of Western Bohemia (like Marianske Lazne or Karlovy Vary – Carlsbad), but compared to them Konstantinovy Lazne feels very quiet and almost family-like.
Spa and Mineral Springs
The spa is specialized on problems of the cardiovascular system. Local mineral springs have the highest concentration of free carbon dioxide of all mineral waters in the Czech Republic. Prusikuv Pramen spring is available in the large Spa Park.
Konstantinovy Lazne literally means Konstantin’s Spa, named after Konstantin of Löwenstein, who owned the spa in the 19th century.
