Karlovy Vary (or Carlsbad in English) is a town in Bohemia located in the western part of Czech Republic near their border with Germany. Their cut glass, which is admired throughout the world, is rooted in their traditional Moser glass factory that was founded by Ludwig Moser in 1857. Through time, their famous glass has made it to and decorated the residences of some prominent personalities such as Queen Elizabeth II, King Haakon VII, and Elton John. Apart from their glass, they are also famous for their spa resorts as the city is bequeathed with hot water springs that run throughout the city. The ubiquity of their waters is evident in the several decorated taps scattered around the city. On top of these, the city is also known to host the Karlovy Vary International Film Festival and famous for its herbal liqueur Becherovka, which retains its original recipe since 1807.
