Czech Republic, Karlovy Vary  5-2-2104

Three new unwritten and unstamped postcards from Czech Rep.
Karlovy Vary or Carlsbad is a spa town situated in western Bohemia, Czech Republic, on the confluence of the rivers Ohře and Teplá, approximately 130 km (81 mi) west of Prague (Praha). It is named after King of Bohemia and Holy Roman Emperor Charles IV, who founded the city in 1370. It is historically famous for its hot springs. Since the fall of the Soviet Union and the end of Communist rule in the Czech Republic, 
there has been a steady increase of the Russian business presence in Karlovy Vary.
