Františkovy Lázně is the smallest of the towns in the West Bohemian spa triangle puts packs in a lot of charm.
This lovely spa town is situated close to the border with Germany north of Cheb. The unique classic turn-of-the-century architecture displayed by the town's spa hotels and spring pavilions creates a magical atmosphere so typical of the Czech spa towns. The town is named after Austrian Emperor Franz I.
The first spa season opened in 1793 with the town experiencing a boom in the following decades .
Classic architectural styles can be seen throughout the town - there are a couple of Empire style spa hotels dating from the year 1800 and the Empire style church of the Holy Cross (1820). Some of the springs had classic pavilions built over them including the František Spring (1831) and the Solný and Luční springs (1844).
