According to legend, the ancestors of today's Czechs, led by their leader Czech, settled on the territory of modern Czech Republic, which has been inhabited since the Stone Age. The first chronicle mentions of settlements on the Czech land date back to the end of the 9th century, when these lands were united by princes from the Přemyslid clan. In the Middle Ages, the Czech kingdom had significant influence, but the religious conflicts that arose (the Hussite wars in the 15th century and the Thirty Years' War in the 17th century) significantly weakened it. Soon the kingdom came under the rule of the Habsburgs and became part of Austria-Hungary.
After the end of the First World War and the fall of Austria-Hungary in 1918, the Czech Republic, Slovakia and Subcarpathian Rus united into the independent republic of Czechoslovakia. The country was occupied by Germany in 1939. At the end of World War II, the Czech Republic found itself in the Soviet camp, which predetermined its history until 1989. On January 1, 1993, Slovakia separated from the Czech Republic, and both countries gained independence. Today's Czech Republic has been a NATO member since 1999, and has been a member of the European Union since 2004.

Marianske Lazne - a resort on the border with Germany
Although Marianske Lazne was founded almost 200 years ago, it is he who is the youngest healing spa in the Czech Republic. In the valley where the resort is located, over a hundred springs with mineral water come to the surface of the earth, and on the territory of the city itself there are almost forty of them. At the same time, the uniqueness of the resort lies precisely in the fact that springs with very different characteristics coexist quite closely. This in itself is a balneological rarity. The temperature of all healing springs ranges from 7 to 10 degrees. Their cold acidic water is used for drinking (up to 0.75 liters per day are prescribed for holidaymakers), medicinal baths and wraps, inhalations and irrigations. The water of Marienbad, as the resort was called earlier, will perfectly lower blood pressure, improve blood supply to the limbs and brain, heart and genitourinary system.
