Františkovy Lázné is the third largest Czech spa resort located 180 km afar from Prague and a short way off the German border. Expanding a powerful tourist infrastructure and hosting a lot of modern medical centers, the resort has managed to miraculously save the unique atmosphere of the early XX century via neoclassical buildings surrounded by the green of parks. In addition, the resort is famous for its rich cultural traditions: Beethoven, Goethe and Schiller recreated and recuperated here at different times. The symbol of Františkovy Lázné is a bronze sculpture of boy called Francis (Františk) located in the historic center of the city.
Clearly the city also has an accompanying legend, according to which by touching the described symbol of fertility, women experiencing difficulties with childbirth will soon become a mother. Perhaps this belief is not utterly unfounded as the main specialization of the resort is the treatment of gynecological diseases.
Complex spa treatment includes treatment in sanatoriums and in hospitals Lazne I, II Lazne and Lazne III.
