Atlantic Palace

PAST


Atlantic Palace is one of the most prominent architectural gems of Karlovy Vary. Construction was started in 1912 by the Viennese architect Fritz Mahler and the house was opened on May 1st 1914. Builder of this building was Alois Klein, a respected businessman and hotelier from Carlsbad. In its time, it was clearly the most modern building in the city. The decoration of the house were made by designers from the famous Wiener Werkstaette company, which opened an office inside this building. Viennese sculptor Michael Powolny created statues of angels, which still adorn the facade of the building and are its symbols.


The building and its owner had unsettled fate. In 1938 Alois Klein had to escape the fascists abroad and the house was foreclosed by Greater German Reich. After expropriation by the state in 1945, the palace was slowly devastated, which in 1962 culminated in the destruction of unique onyx facade in the ground floor and mezzanine. Until 1989, the house was used by Carlsbad state company Interhotels. After a lengthy resolution of restitution claims and return to the original owners of the house started at the beginning of the new millennium with its successive corrections.
Atlantic for its exceptional value entered in the list of cultural monuments.

Awesome interior design

Simplicity, elegance, style, luxury - these words accurately characterize the interiors

of Luxury Spa Hotel Atlantic Palace.

 

The building was built in the early 20th century and after extensive renovation, which was made in the twenty-first century, the hotel has saved all the original elements of style Wiener Werstätte. Ideas of the Wiener Werkstätte were inspired by the Arts and Crafts movement, which, at that time, affected in England. Wiener Werkstätte, however, had its own unique style, which reflected in their products - jewellery, decorative materials, furniture, ceramics and designs on clothing. The fastener was a hallmark of their simplicity in decoration and shapes and their unusual geometric design. From the Arts and Crafts movement, the Wiener Werkstätte also differed by more focused on a narrower range of customers, their intention was not to produce ordinary products, but rather the individual pieces.


Single piece, a jewel of Carlsbad, it is Luxury Spa Hotel Atlantic Palace.

Carlsbad and Atlantic

Carlsbad lies in West Bohemia at the confluence of the Teplá River and the Ohře River, about 120 km west of Prague. It is the largest and best-known spa city in the Czech Republic.

 

Charles IV founded the city in the 14th century. According to the legend, the Emperor had the city built soon after the accidental discovery of thermal springs by his hunting retinue. The spa facilities enjoyed the favour of many aristocratic houses and rich burghers as early as the 16th century. Due to a series of natural disasters, only a few buildings have been preserved from that period. Most architectonic monuments originated in the 18th and the 19th century when the city experiences a „period of abundance“.

 

Luxury Spa Hotel Atlantic Palace was opened in the early twentieth century, only a few days before the outbreak of the First World War. This listed building is situated in the heart of Karlovy Vary, a stone's throw from the Colonnade at the sight of Stará louka (Old meadow) overlooking the lazily flowing Teplá River. The hotel rooms have a beautiful view of the whole town center, St. Maria Magdalene Church, Theatre Square and the famous mixed forests of Carlsbad.
