The tradition of hop cultivation has a long history in the Czech Republic. Beer of the highest quality has been brewed here for centuries, and it has become deeply embedded in the national culture. It’s no coincidence that the Czech Republic has the world’s highest consumption of the amber nectar. Foreign tourists contribute greatly to this record; Czech “liquid bread” has become so popular with visitors that they couldn’t imagine a holiday in the Czech Republic without a dewy glass of beer. But did you know that, as well as tasting great, Czech beer also possesses healing qualities? Modern science has managed to determine its qualities perfectly and has discovered that beer demonstrably boosts the organism’s stamina, benefits the vascular system, helps relax the muscles and harmonises bodily functions. Beer genuinely is “to your health”!
Bathe in beer in Karlovy VaryYou can indulge in beer wellness both at spa centres and elsewhere. In the very heart of the best-known Czech spa, Karlovy Vary, you can experience for yourself the unique effects of beer at the First Beer Spa. There you can bathe in handmade whirling tubs of Royal Oak, an eternal symbol of longevity and endurance. The bath is based on an original recipe consisting of brewer’s yeast, selected varieties of hops, malt and peat extract. While bathing, you can drink an unlimited amount of light and dark beer, helping the hydration of your body. You will be rewarded by not only the taste of excellent beer, but also the release of tension, fatigue and stress, the washing out of harmful substances from your body, the regeneration of your skin and absolute mental and physical relaxation. Beer spas can also be found at other spa towns, such as Jeseník in Moravia.
