Ferdinand Spring

This water has a decidedly salty taste with a composition similar to the Cross Spring (křížový), but more mineralized. It was the first Spring to attract attention to what was, at that time, a largely uninhabited and quite remote area of forest on the border. From the 16th century it was often used in the production of salt. However this could not be used for cooking as it was a laxative form of salt.
