Karl Marx Monument

The spa town of Karlovy Vary, located 80 miles (130 kilometers) west of Prague, has never been home to Karl Marx. He did, however, visit the spa three times between 1874 and 1876, a fact which local artist and sculptor Karel Kuneš decided to immortalize. 

Marx, a Prussian-born philosopher, political thinker and revolutionist, studied political economy and Hegelian philosophy. He is most famous for his work with Fredrich Engels, in particular, the 1848 publication The Communist Manifesto.
