Marianske Lazne owes its popularity to its health-improving reputation that attracts not only celebrities, but 25,000 common tourists per year. They usually come to this forested valley that Matianske Lazne occupies for a breath of clean air and woods' silence.
The slopes of this valley are dotted with 100 acidulous water springs - a rarity anywhere. Within city limits you can find scattered about 40 rare springs like Cross, Ferdinand, and Rudolph springs, while the rest have their source in the area. All springs are believed to have the power to influence various diseases and improve the way you feel.
This curative effect of Marianske Lazne springs was well-known the world before the 19th century spa resort appeared. Locals noticed these springs rising right from the ground in the 13th century. But the first who put their medical treatment to use was Dr. Jan Josfe Nehr. In 1805, he built the first brick guest house, called ''U Zlate Koule'' and several years later the spa resort saw both tourist and building booms. With the turn of 20th century some constructions attained historical significance. Attractions include;
Anglican church ''Christ Church'', a favored landmark of King Edward VII done in Gothic and Romanic styles
- Orthodox church of St. Vladimir, built between 1900-1902 on a place of former oratory
- Kynžvart castle, initially was built in baroque style in the 17th century, but later saw renovation with neoclassical touches
