Long Description:

Neo-Baroque buiding of Stone Spa (Kamenné lázne) is one of several spa complexes in town Teplice in the North Bohemia region of the Czech Republic.

In the 19th century, Teplice's fame as an important European spa resort was great. In his 1828 book Austria as It Is, Charles Sealsfield calls the town "the celebrated Temple of Hygaeia for all those numerous disorders produced". Diplomats, crowned heads, scientists and artists were among its visitors – no wonder Teplice was called "Little Paris" or the "Parlour of Europe".

Stone Spa was built at the site of older spa buildings in 1910. Stone Spa is a palatial neo-Baroque structure with classicist traces. Its architects were Jirsch from Teplice and Arnim from Potsdam. The festive opening of the new building in 1911 was attended by Archduke Charles, the later successor to the Habsburg throne. The spa was named after Franz Joseph's spouse Elisabeth, known as Sissi, which later, after the fall of the monarchy, became unacceptable and the spa returned to its original name. The word "Stone" refers to the stone edge encircling the spring, which was covered only by wooden, shingle-roofed scaffolding till 1800.
