There is something to drink and there is something to pour it in…! That is how we can sum up succinctly the offer of the KarlovyVARY° CARD. The card will make it possible for you to get to know the uniqueness of famous Karlovy Vary products and specialties You can start your “excursion” in the world-famous Moser glassworks. You will feel the genuine atmosphere of glass production, smell the burnt out wooden moulds and sense the atmosphere of the almost 160-year-long history of luxury glass Moser production.
Then you can exchange brittle glass for no less brittle porcelain. You will get to know its mystery during a tour round the Thun 1794 porcelain factory. The porcelain story will make you acquainted with the gradual transformation of kaolin mass into unique glass products. You can try printers’ work and use your imagination when decorating your own porcelain cup.
You will learn how white, pink or ivory porcelain is made by hand in the porcelain factory Rudolf Kämpf in Loučky. You will be able to watch the hands of throwers, painters and printers.
So – what to pour into our glass- or porcelain ware? How about the famous Karlovy Vary Becherovka liqueur? Go to see the original rooms where the liqueur used to be made and vast cellars but, first of all, taste it...! The exact composition of the famous herbal liqueur has been a mystery for more than 200 years. Will you try to uncover it?
