Imperial Spa in Karlovy Vary to undergo reconstruction
The Czech ministries of finance and culture have promised to support the reconstruction of the Imperial Spa in Karlovy Vary with the amount of 100 million crowns. The Pseudo-Renaissance spa building from the 19th century, which has been declared the National Cultural Monument, had to be closed down in 1994. The costs of the reconstruction, which is estimated at 600 million crowns, will be shared by the state and the town and region of Karlovy Vary. The local authorities are also hoping to receive additional finances from European funds.
