About the town

Podebrady is a calm town situated 50 km to the east of Prague, famous for its spas and its royal descendent, King George of Podebrady. Podebrady was founded in 1224 near an important crossing on the Elbe river. Podebrady castle is the birthplace of King George, according to historians he was born in 1420. His peace efforts were influential throughout the centuries which followed.

As early as the 17th century a small spa was founded in Podebrady. The waters here were considered the most medicinal in the region with their high iron content.

In the year 1905, an exceptionally strong spring with healing mineral water has been discovered in the courtyard of the Podebrady castle. Since 1908, heart, circulation and blood vessel diseases have been treated in the carbon bath with iron-containing water.
