The opening of the spa season is traditionally a May cultural and social event.
The spa season will be inaugurated in Mariánské Lázně a city in Western Bohemia. The opening includes an age-old custom of blessing the springs. Part of the celebration is also a festive concert, a mass, a craft fair, a charity golf and tennis tournament, birds of prey flight demonstrations as well as concerts. The program takes place at the Colonnade, in the space of Arnika and in the spa park.
