The history of the most popular Czech mineral water dates back to 1864, when Heinrich Mattoni took over the bottling plant in Kyselka. Mattoni mineral water is now exported to more than 20 countries around the world and is also the official water of the International Bartender Association. We recommend a visit to the Mattoni Museum in Löschner's House in Kyselka, which documents not only the history of the brand, but also the current renewal of Kyselka Spa.
