Beer Spa in Prague for thirst, fun & healthWritten byRenata Jirasova01 May. 2015
Since time immemorial, people are obsessed with eternal youth. Do you know that regular baths with special ingredients is one of the things that can improve the quality of your skin?
The Egyptian Queen Cleopatra used to have baths in milk from donkeys. The baths were not just an oddity, beneficial effects of any milk on the skin were proven. The infamous Marie Antoinette, Queen of France, loved wine baths in order to have her skin smooth and nourished. By the way, already ancient Romans used wine to moisturize and colour their lips.
The Countess Elizabeth Báthory (from the renowned Báthory family of nobility in the Kingdom of Hungary), known as a biggest female serial killer of Hungarian and Slovak history, used to bathed in the blood of girls-virgins. She killed hundreds of girls and young women (mostly her maid-servants) between 1585 and 1610. The legends say that she had a phobia of ageing and believed that baths from their bloods can help to keep her skin forever young.
Fortunately nowadays we don´t need to search for milk of donkeys or do other strange things in order to enjoy a good, healthy bath. For visitors of Prague, the capital of the Czech Republic and "the Beer kingdom" :-), I can highly recommend to visit one of the popular Beer Spa.
Czech beer is a national treasure. The tradition of cultivation has a long history in the Czech Republic. Beer of the highest quality has been brewed here for centuries, and it has become deeply embedded in the national culture. It’s no coincidence that the Czech Republic has the world’s highest consumption of the amber nectar. Beside the great taste, scientists also proved the healing qualities – beer stimulate and support the organism’s stamina, benefits the vascular system, helps relax the muscles and harmonises bodily functions.
