Františkovy Lázně were founded on the 27th of April, 1793 under the name Emperor Francis´s village and in 1807 they were officially awarded the name Františkovy Lázně. They are named after the emperor Francis I, who is considered their founder. The healing effects of the local springs have been known since the 15th century.
The initial countryside spa with just one spring (the Francis spring), a wooden colonnade, several spa houses and the Social house has quickly become one of the most sought-after European spa towns.
