Františkovy Lázně



This is the oldest maintained part of Františkovy Lázně, located to the north of the main street. In 1882, the wooden, octagonal music pavilion was constructed here, which is currently also used for concerts performed by the Františkovy Lázně Symphony Orchestra.

The North Park (Municipal Park) was planted in the area beyond the current fountain in the shape of two uniform squares, divided by a wide path in line with the axis of what is today National (Národní) Avenue. This planting was realised in regular spacings of trees planted on the backfill created when excavating foundations for the constructions of houses. These planted grown trees have long since mostly died. To the north of these squares, a small hill was piled up. It came to be called Schneckenberg - Snail Hill and had an obelisk and a hairpin-bend path leading to the peak, offering a beautiful view of the countryside. On this site today, the equestrian statue of Franz I is found.
