The first radon spa in the world
The West Bohemian spa town of Jáchymov is situated in a deep wooded valley in the foothills of the Ore Mountains. The surrounding hills provide breathtaking views, astonishing in their beauty, at any time of the year. At the beginning of the 20th century a rich supply of radon was discovered by miners of uranium ore in the former silver mines, leading to the founding of the spa grounds and the first sanatorium. The treatment on offer here is associated with discoveries made by Marie Curie, and one of the spa houses is named after her.
