The spa company – the first radon spa in the world – manages the former “Svornost” mine from where radon water with its unique energy-producing properties is fed to the spa facilities. The resort offers a total accommodation capacity of 1,172 beds. As a Neoclassical hotel-type palace, RADIUM PALACE, was one of the best European spa facilities in 1912. The distinctive historical character of this impressive building has been preserved owing to the sensitive approach taken towards its restoration which moved its standard up to a four-star hotel. A winter holiday in the spa resort can be combined with skiing activities in the nearby ski centres in Klínovec or Boží Dar.
