Hotel History

Even Carlsbad Olympia is a place with rich and nearly holy history with various changes in the architecture, life of its inhabitants and visitors. Every corner of the building – luxury or simply functional – has had its story. If you take a while to think and relax during your spa-vacation, you can see all the ways back to history – symbolized by its actual name on the front door – SLAVÍK (Nightingale), SOKOL (Falcon), MONOPIL, ZLATÝ ŠTÍT (Golden Shield), BRATISLAVA,…

For homeowners Heinrich Fousek, C. K., who was a retired postmaster, developed a project by Ing. Julius Kubicek. Construction work was carried out by the architect Karl Fousek. The architecture of the street facade was made in a different form compared Kubíček proposal. Nobody knows, who was the author of the distinctive shape of a house with a big burly middle bay, crowned by baroque shield.
