Travel: the Czech Republics best spas – Features – The Prague Post.
Advertising itself as “The First Radon Spa in the World,” Jáchymov, located 126 miles west from Prague and close to the German border, offers a number of treatment programs designed for those suffering from arthritis. Originally known as a rich mining town for silver ore and later for uranium, Jáchymov has hosted spa visitors since the 19th century. Visitors to the spa town, which is located deep in a dramatic valley, can also enjoy numerous hiking trails, nearby skiing and a number of other sports excursions organized by local hotels.
