This spa town located about 150 kilometers from Prague is one of the nation’s most favored getaways. With a near perfect climate, panoramic mountain views, stunning architecture and lush gardens, Marianske Lanze is the perfect place to spend a relaxing weekend or plan for a day-trip escape.
Though the spas are Marianske Lazne's main draw, there are many other reasons worth visiting. Travelers can explore the tiny Dion E Chopin museum or wander through quaint roads lined by numerous coffee houses and turn-of-the-century apartments. An annual festival paying homage to the Polish composer Chopin takes place each August, and visitors who make the trek to Marianske Lanze in June can enjoy the classical music festival this spa town has become famous for. And because no trip to this relaxing respite is complete without a visit to the spa, most hotels provide a wide range of services to meet the pampering needs of most any guest.
Marianske Lazne is located 105 miles west of Prague, off Highway 21. Visitors can take exit 128 toward Plana to access the area. Marianske Lanze is also accessible via train using the Nurnberg or ChebPlzen-Pracque local train line Karlovy Vary Maianske Lanze.
