The neo-Renaissance stone colonnade by the foremost Czech architect Josef Zítek was built in 1871 to 1881. However, when it was opened, people did not have any praise words for it. They called it a bowling alley or an asparagus bed.
Today the huge colonnade building (132 metres long and 13 metres wide) houses 5 mineral springs and is one of the most famous and splendid colonnades in Karlovy Vary.
