Hotel Thermal

Due to the success of the Czechoslovak new wave film in the 1960s, the party at power wanted to promote the Karlovy Vary International Film Festival to compete with other European film festivals. The Hotel Thermal therefore was built to demonstrate cutting edge Czechoslovak architecture. It houses the festival to this day without major changes. The exterior and interior are interlinked by the materials used – concrete, glass, metal and wood. The furniture of the hotel was originally designed by the architects themselves.
