The Spa Town Klášterec nad Ohří

Klášterec nad Ohří in north-western Bohemia is situated between the towns Chomutov and Karlovy Vary, not far from the German border. Less than 16 thousand inhabitants live in the River Ohře valley, between the Doupovské and the Ore Mountains.

The historically most significant monument of the town is the four-wing neo-Gothic castle. In the inner courtyard a permanent exposition of Czech, European and Oriental china is displayed. In the year 1794 the oldest porcelain factory in Bohemia came into existence and the porcelain production continues until today.
The baroque Church of the Holy Trinity with the Thun´s family sepulchre, the graveyard church of Our Lady the Comforter, the square with classicist and empire houses, the so-called Lion Fountain made by Johann Brokoff, the Holy Trinity Column and the neo-Renaissance town hall with eight sided tower are other significant monuments.
In the end of the 19th century also balneology, in addition to porcelain production, became a part of Klášterec nad Ohí’s traditions.


This development started when a healing mineral spring, called Eugenia, was discovered. Currently, the town can boast with a newly reconstructed spa resort where you can taste three mineral springs – Eugenia, Monastery spring and Town spring. The spa will open its first season on May 17, 2008 where local amateur actors will play a story about the Eugenia spring´s discovery, Spirituál Kvintet band will perform and the springs will be “consecrated” by the violin of virtuoso Jaroslav Svěcený.
