€38m funding for Czech health tourism industry


Due to COVID-19, numerous governments around the world are still undecided about reopening spa facilities.

In the Czech Republic, the state-sponsored vouchers are available at wellness centres providing spa treatments and rehabilitation care – specifically facilities that have access to natural healing resources and have professional medical staff approved by the Czech Ministry of Health.

To get the vouchers, guests must be staying at least six nights, and use them for a choice of five medical rehabilitation procedures treatments, such as a natural carbonic bath followed by a wrap, a massage or a bathing ritual in natural mineral waters.

Czech spas have the added appeal of offering guests access to full spa facilities, including saunas and steam rooms.

Many of the Czech spas included in the scheme are located within the West Bohemian Spa Triangle, home to the world’s highest concentration of curative water springs. For centuries, these springs have been claimed to help cure and ease ailments and Czech spas are already busy developing treatment programmes for those recovering from COVID-19.

The scheme will finish on 31 December 2020 and requires online application to get the voucher.

The discount only applies to adults and self-pay stays; the discount is not applicable to children's stays or spa treatments covered by health insurance.
