On the way to Prague Kongo stops off at Karlovy Vary in the Bohemian region of the Czech Republic. Karlovy Vary, also known as Carlsbad. is famous for it’s opulent hotels, shops, pilsner beer, and spas. What a beautiful place. Nestled between scenic forested hills, Carlsbad is built about 13 major hot springs along with about 300 other more minor springs. The hotels and shopping are equal to Beverly Hills and Rodeo Drive.
