In the past, the many forest restaurants enticed Karlovy Vary spa visitors to walk along the paths, and perhaps even partake of a diet breakfast after drinking the prescribed amount of spring water in the mornings. Today, the attraction of the forest walks is mainly the peace and quiet, gorgeous nooks, and beautiful views of the spa and it's surrounding area from many different vantage points, especially from the various look out towers. It is certainly pretty to see the spa forests from the colonnade walks, but to dive into the luxurious vegetation and walk through the web of forest paths, not only makes your body stronger but will soothe your soul.
