Are you planning a visit to Františkovy Lázně?
In that case, you should not miss the chance to visit these museums.
The beginnings of the Municipal Museum date back to 1912 when the town's inhabitants started collecting the first exhibits for the future museum.
The current museum exposition documents the history of the spa town from the discovery of the František Spring to the 20th century along with the local architecture and the development of balneological methods. In addition to many other exhibits, you may see historical postcards of the spa, wooden piping of the František Spring from the first half of the 18th century, or the original statue of František made by Adolf Mayerl in 1923.
Located about 5 km to the west of Františkovy Lázně, it is one of a few preserved ministerial castles in Czechia and the only one exclusively serving for museum purposes. To its visitors, it offers extensive expositions presenting the history of the castle, a scullery, and an exhibition entitled "From the Life of a Porcelain Cup".
The premises of the half-timbered Baroque barn, shed and the tower garret in the outer ward are dedicated to folk culture, agriculture and craft of the Cheb countryside in the 19th century. During summer, Seeberg Castle comes to life with the already traditional Historical Fair or the Wine Festival. Every year, the programme features concerts of various genres, as well as thematic afternoons for children and adults.
Apart from the Soos nature trail, you may find a rescue station for injured animals, which is a part of the national network of stations for handicapped animals. You can also see museum expositions dedicated to the nature of the reserve and its surroundings, an extensive exposition aptly entitled the "Avian World of the Cheb Region", or the "History of the Earth" paleontological exposition with large-size models of prehistoric reptiles.
This year, the Soos Nature Reserve visitors will be able to use the newly opened visitor centre with a modern research room, as well as an arbour intended as an outdoor classroom. The visitor centre will also serve schools and institutions. Young people should acquire basic knowledge about nature and its protection.
