Karlovy Vary symbolic geyser closed to public

Karlovy Vary’s symbolic mineral geyser is to be closed to the public until the start of February. The two week closure will allow pipes transporting the boiling hot mineral water to be cleaned. Spa treatments using the water, which can reach temperatures of 72 degrees Celsius, will also be temporarily suspended. The mineral water geyser of up to 12 metres is the symbol of the Czech Republic’s biggest spa resort and one of the main attractions for thousands of tourists every year.
