History since 1977
A festival palace that will stand out even on the international level. That was the requirement for the design of the Thermal Hotel. In an architectural competition, the design by Mr. and Mrs. Machonin, combining elements of Brutalism and international style, was chosen. The entire complex, comprising of a film festival centre, an international hotel and a thermal spa, was built between 1968 and 1977, with the architects overseeing each detail of the construction process in person.
The truly unique and remarkable building became a landmark of Karlovy Vary. Have a look at its history.
