The Colonnade itself is beautiful, but if you consider the whole place and compare it with other cities of this type, I dare to say it is the worst. I do not understand why there must be shops with their advertisements and plates inside the colonnade. If you never visited any spa city, than you could find this amazing, but if you had, you would not consider visiting again.

The Colonnade is situated almost on the top of the city, 5 minutes walking from the center of the city through a really nice and maintained park. The main attraction there is of course the singing fountain and lots of mineral springs. The place is really nice and I can recommend it to families, couples, anybody who just wants to enjoy the day, doing nothing, just drinking the mineral water. There is not so many people so the place is not crowded for the whole day but when the singing fountain really starts to sing, at evening also with light effects, to place becomes really crowded with people and you can see the fountain well. People also gather around the fountain in advance to have their "places" when it starts to sing.

Anyway, awesome atmosphere, not repeatable experience!

There are jazz bands every weekend playing for free in the middle of the Mlynska Colonnade, you can listen to them as long as you like.

A nice promenade where you can take pictures, sample the mineral water. I think that can honestly be said for all of Karlovy Vary. :)

it's just impressive; the whole city is a museum with old buildings from different styles, you should travel there once in your life
