It is surrounded with hilly landscapes and forests typical of the scenery for spas. Moser glass and Karlovarská Becherovka (38% alcohol, 100f sugar, known as "the thirteenth spring"), are the traditional specialties of Karlovy Vary. The Karlovy Vary International film festival annually presents more than 200 category A films from the whole world. GETTING THERE The town is located not far from the Czech-German border on the E48 road. The local airport has a regular connection with Prague and Moscow.
