You travel back a Century when you move out of the town to visit a village called Karlova Studánka. Such is the scene as you step out of your car and your lungs take in the sort of air they have never ever felt before, when the surroundings are lush green and the only sound that you hear is the birds, the wind and leaves, when you have a tiny waterfall on one side of that street and a pond on the other, when you find out that the village has a natural spring of iron acidulous water known to have curing capabilities and a very famous spa where people seek complete rejuvenation, one starts disbelieving in the senses.
Karlova Studánka has the reputation of the cleanest air in Central Europe and as the website of the town aptly puts it – “If you are looking for a break from the hustle and bustle of civilization, if you want, at least for a while to return to the atmosphere of the last century, you need to breathe clean air, drink pure mineral water and feel the beauty of deep woods, then welcome to our village.”
