It was the last day of the Karlovy Vary International Film Festival in Karlovy Vary or Carlsbad as the Germans call it. The famous spa town in the region of Bohemia was bustling with many tourists and excitement over the celebrities that were believed to be staying in one of the many exclusive hotels. I was excited to see the Grandhotel Pupp, which is precisely the hotel that hosts the annual film festival. The hotel also appears in the James Bond film Casino Royale.
A very hot summer’s day didn’t stop us from exploring every corner, boutique or geyser that the town had to offer.
We visited the Mill Colonnade whose twelve statues for the twelve months of the year stand above its portico. There were also the Market Colonnade and the Park Colonnade that were equally fascinating.
No wonder they call it Czech’s very own ‘Monte Carlo.’ Simply amazing and exclusive yet not expensive at all !
A perfect weekend getaway for all !!
