Lidi pracují pro lidiVřídlo, v.d. - The traditional cosmetics manufacturer from Karlovy Vary

For thousands of years the world-renowned spring with curative mineral water – the Karlovy Vary Vřídlo Spring - has been gushing from the earth. It has become the symbol of the largest and most famous spa in the Czech Republic. The spa lies in the centre of Europe and the spring is truly its eternally pulsating heart. Everything that is important for making Karlovy Vary the great spa resort it is, is concentrated around this hot spring. It supplies all the spa facilities with thermal therapeutic water, from which the Karlovy Vary hot-spring salts are made and provides the gaseous carbon dioxide necessary for the gas baths. One of fountainheads of the Vřídlo hot-water spring (72°C) is indeed the spring that is gushing in the Vřídlo Colonnade and attracts the attention of all the guests visiting the city.
