Sauna, Spas and Wellness in Prague


A few days ago, I went for a walk in the late evening. Our street was covered in snow, peaceful and calm with the snowflakes slowly adding another layer of beauty to the city. I do not remember when was the last time we had a winter like this, so please, dear guests, venture out for snowy walks and enjoy the show. However, if you feel like warming up, there is nothing better than a sauna or some indoor water fun. As always, we have some recommendations for you. Read on!

Lázně na Lodi

A sauna on a boat with a view of the river and the Prague castle. Seriously, can it get any better? It is a very small place though and fits only 15 people at the same time, so reservations via their website are highly recommended, maybe even a few days in advance. Open daily 18-23, 70 CZK per person for half an hour.

Aquapalace

If you feel like spending the whole day switching in between Toboggans, slides, artificial waves, whirlpools, saunas and relaxation terraces, this is the place. On cold days, some of the pools are heated up to around 30° and the 14 different saunas are great for warming up, too. You can also book massages. Using public transport, it will take you around one hour to get there from Sir Toby’s, but the long opening hours (Water World until 22:00, Sauna World until 23:00) still allow you to enjoy a stress-free breakfast before going there. A day ticket costs around 30 EUR.

Biotop Radotin

Radotin is quite far from the city center and not really interesting from a traveler’s point of view, however, it is on the way to Karlštejn, which is definitely worth a day trip. Stroll through the picturesque village and visit one of Emperor Charles IV.’s masterpieces: the castle, dating back to the 14th century. If you feel frozen on your way back, get off at Radotin and visit the Finnish KijuKiju Sauna (but do not forget to reserve under tel. +420 608 262 805 or +420 774 485 998). Open Sunday – Wednesday 17-22, women only on Tuesdays.

Beer Spas

Ok, I have to be honest here, I am not sure what to think about this one: Beer Spas are a thing in Prague. The Bernard Spa, for example, claims that similar establishments have been existing since the Middle Ages and that bathing in beer has numerous health benefits. There are several offers for beer Spas in Prague connected to different brands, prices are all equally high – starting from around 70 EUR (for example here). If anyone has tried it, let us know if it is worth it!

Kayak Beach Bar

Like Lázně na Lodi, Kayak Beach Bar is located on a boat on the riverbank. Even now, you can rent Kayaks and experience the city from a different angle. Afterwards, relax your muscles and warm up in their small sauna. Have a look at this video and reserve your spot here.

Surf Arena

Prague is surely not your go-to destination if you are planning to learn surfing, but well, why not give it a try? Instructors will tell you how to catch the (obviously artificial) waves, all the necessary equipment is provided and they offer packages including a pick up from the city center (booking via e-mail: reservation@surfarena.cz or phone + 420 725 927 410) with prices starting from 2000 CZK, approx. 75 EUR.

First came the love for Kafka, his home town was soon to follow. As the famous writer put it: “Prague never lets you go. This dear little mother has sharp claws.” That’s why Katharina, originally from Germany, is staying around, even if she is still struggling with the local language and the lack of vowels in it.
