Frantiskovy Lazne is one of the three cities in the Czech spa triangle (besides Karlovy Vary and Marianske Lazne). In this article I will provide an overview of this town, tell what is there and show my photos.

In Františkovy Lázně we planned to spend the night on the road from Germany to Prague , already on the return trip . Honestly, I didn’t like the town, it was kind of boring – in a word, a health resort for German retirees 🙂 Therefore, I would not recommend looking for interesting sights or fun activities 🙂 Nevertheless, for those who go for rest or treatment, the article may be useful.

Frantiskovy Lazne – Czech thermal spa

The spa town of Frantiskovy Lazne (Frantiskovy Lazne) is located 180 km from Prague and 50 km from Karlovy Vary on the border with Germany (hence the spread of the German language and a huge number of Germans). The resort was founded in the 18th century, so it can be said that in itself is a historical attraction.

At the time, Beethoven, Goethe, Schiller came to the resort, and today Frantiskovi Lazne specializes in the treatment of gynecological diseases. Even the symbol of the city – the bronze statue of the boy Frantisk – has its own legend: by touching it, women suffering from infertility or other problems become a mother 🙂

By the way, in this city as many as 21 mineral springs come to the surface!

How to get to Frantiskovy Lazne

You can get to Frantiskovy Lazne both from Prague and from Karlovy Vary.

The easiest way to get there is by car, as the route by public transport is a bit confusing.

By bus from the Florenc bus station in Prague you can get to the city of Cheb (from 200 CZK), then transfer to another bus and get to Frantiskovy Lazne.

The same thing with the train – you need to get to Cheb station (from 310 korunas), change to either a local train (another 7 minutes to Lazne) or by bus.

If there is a financial opportunity, it is better, of course, to order an individual transfer – especially if you send parents or grandparents to the resort! The cost of transfer from Prague is 120 euros (it is better to order at least two days in advance, then the availability of a car is guaranteed). Order link >>>

You can also get from Karlovy Vary by bus with a transfer to Cheb (from 50 korunas).

Car rental in Frantiskovych Lazne.

I reviewed all the major car rental sites, but did not find a single car rental point in this city. I am sure that there is a rental in the city, you just need to find out in private companies or through the reception of your hotel.

Sights of Frantiskovy Lazne

As I said above, Lazne is not too fun in terms of entertainment. Therefore, the main attractions here are thermal springs, numerous parks and gardens, walking areas.

Walking area

The city center is Peace Square, which was founded around the first discovered source (back in the 18th century). In the same square stands the figure of the aforementioned wonder boy.

Of the architectural sights – the Church of Saints Peter and Paul, as well as the Church of St.Olga.

Natural attractions are the Soos National Reserve, 5 km from Marianske Lazne (peat bogs under which springs beat and these swamps begin to seethe), and 2 km away is the Komorni Gurka volcano, which in general is already inactive.

Quite an interesting place for both adults and young people is the aquapark “Aquaforum” with pools, attractions, saunas. Below are the prices for visiting the Aquaforum in Frantiskovy Lazne for September 2018:

Hotels and motels Frantiskovych Lazne

The choice of hotels and resorts is not very large, but guest houses and guest houses are quite diverse. We stayed in one of the “pension” at a price of 44 euros per night. Everything is more than modestly and not always thought out (for example, in the SOUL there is not even any shelf for comet accessories). The only thing that pleased me was that not far from the center, and the Lidl supermarket can be reached on foot (15 minutes). I will not say the name, because I do not want to recommend this place)

The most popular spa hotels in Frantiskovy are:

Savoy Spa & Kurhotel (Hotel Savoy) 4 * – in the city center, 500 meters from the water park, which is included in the price. From 70 euros per night with breakfast. Rating 7.4

Hotel PAWLIK-AQUAFORUM (Sanatorium Pawlik) 4 * – one of the most popular hotels in Františkovy Lázně, located near the park and has direct access to the water park. From 142 euros per night with breakfast. Rating 7.6

Spa & Kur Hotel Harvey 4 * – a hotel of a higher level and with a higher rating (8.4) than the previous ones. Fairly modern hotel with a modern decoration. The hotel has its own spa center. The water park is 1 km away. From 90 € per night.

As you can see, hotels are not too cheap, and even the most popular hotels have low ratings. If you are not going for treatment, then take a closer look at the following options:

To be honest, we went to several establishments and decided to go to the Lidl grocery and buy something for dinner. Provided one or two nights in the city, a very good option) By the way, suddenly who needs it, here is Lidl on the map:
