Poděbrady

The town which Charles had little doubt about whom to give it to.

The first records of Poděbrady appeared in the 12th century and from the 13th century there were references to a water castle. Charles IV granted it as a fiefdom to the Lords of Kunštát. It was a very wise decision because thanks to this Poděbrady experienced its heyday. The Lords of Kunštát were truly an important noble family, which is witnessed by at least one eminent name: George of Poděbrady, King of Bohemia from 1458. It was he who granted Poděbrady the status of a town and bestowed upon it several privileges. The town was badly damaged by the Thirty Years' War as well as the 1681 fire. But it bounced back. Today, you can take a stroll through the former castle, which has been reconstructed several times, and have a sip of water from one of the mineral springs which boast healing properties for heart conditions. Thanks to the mineral water Poděbrady became a renowned spa town.
