Do you need to recharge your batteries and have a rest, while remaining active at the same time? If so, the Liberec Region is the right place to spend your active holiday. Here you can find rest, regeneration and relaxation not only in spas but also in relaxation and health farms.
Only two institutions in the Liberec Region are awarded the status of healing spas – the Libverda Spa and the Kundratice Spa. Their atmosphere however is very different from that of the world-famous spas in West Bohemia.
Both spa towns offer a quiet, friendly and personal staff approach and the premises are surrounded by wilderness. Nightlife and expensive shopping centres are not the philosophy of these spas. Guests will be pleasantly surprised by the reasonable prices and see that the spas, although small, can keep up to date with modern healing procedures. You will also certainly be delighted by the offer of weekend stays and discounted stays out of peak season.
The Libverda Spa, in the foothills of the Jizera Mountains, has been famous for its mineral healing sources since the 14th century. Together with its healing procedures you can enjoy various types of baths, wraps, massages and rituals with chocolate or honey in the newly built health centre. If you prefer to relax in a more active way, you will find starting points for trips into the Jizera Mountains in the vicinity of the town. The possibility of trips to our neighbouring countries, Poland or Zittau in Germany, add an interesting dimension to your stay here.
The second spa town of the Liberec Region, the Kundratice Spa, is located in the area around Ještěd, known as Podještědí. It is one of the oldest spas in Bohemia and the healing agent used is sulphur-ferric peat. Thanks to its location, the Kundratice Spa is an ideal place for guests with locomotive organs disorder. The gentle wooded surroundings and nearby swimming pond, Hamr na Jezeře, make an ideal place for trips. For more active relaxation you can visit the nearby golf course.
If a healing spa stay is not what you are looking for but you nonetheless wish to be pampered, and the idea of peat and herbal baths, underwater massages or lava stone massages sound appealing, visit the likes of Harrachov in the Giant Mountains. If you fancy something more unusual, visit its local beer spa which promises to rejuvenate of your organisms.
Resorts in the Giant Mountains not only offer relaxation programmes but thanks to their location they are also the ideal place for an active holiday. If you still have some energy after all the relaxation procedures, you can play golf at the highest golf course in the Czech Republic or rent a bike and head for one of the local cycling paths. Other health centres in the region also offer you a wide range of services, from the Roman-style salt steam room in the city of Liberec, the biggest health centre of the region, to an oriental massage in Česká Lípa or a salt spa in Lučany nad Nisou.
Visits to salt caves, which strengthen the immune system, have also become a favourite way to relax. There are a number of salt caves in the Liberec Region, a few of which can be found in Liberec, Turnov and Česká Lípa for example.
