taking a trip to Karlovy Vary...er, Carlsbad?

Nope, and I'm not talking about the one in California that is fairly close to where I am.  I'm talking about Carlsbad in Bohemia, Czech Republic (also known as Karlovy Vary).  It is today's "place of the day":

Carlsbad, Bohemia, Czech Republic

Apparently this location was home to Beethoven, Brahms, Bach, Liszt, and others who made visits to this spa town.  The mineral waters in this particular area of the country have made many towns famous, and Carlsbad is still known for the variety of springs still present.  It's located about 75 miles west of Prague, but might be worth a quick stop to check out while you're passing through.
