Festive opening of the Spa season 2020
The opening of the 114th Spa season took place in Jáchymov on Saturday, May 30, 2020. Unlike previous years, it was an opening in the true sense of the word. The Spa has been closed until then (due to the pandemic) and this ceremony put it back into life.
The program began with a parade of miners and spa workers in authentic costumes. A group of cyclists closed the parade, quite unusually. We were pleased that the Minister of Health of Czech Republic and the Representative of the Karlovy Vary Region joined the parade on their bikes.
The general director Dr. Eduard Bláha and the mayor of Jáchymov both symbolically threw off their masks and held the opening speeches. The so called „unlocking of the spring“ and its consecration by the local priest Marek Hric followed as a traditional part of the ceremony.
We are also very proud of the long-term cooperation with the Klínovec Ski Resort, whose representative Martin Koky also spoke to the audience.
After a ceremonial shooting, the music program of the Swing Melody Band from Ostrov started.
Have a look at the pictures from the sunny afternoon!
We thank all participants and sponsors and we wish Spa Jáchymov to keep its place in our lives and hearts.
