Czechoslovak Watering Places
The ministry of health made public the data on the number of visitors to the Czechoslovak watering places during the season of 1923. The total number was 96,360, as compared with 68,709 for the previous year. This increase is largely due to the influx of Czechoslovak guests; the number of foreign guests shows a decrease. There were 3,200 guests at Franzensbad, with 710 foreigners; 29,036 persons visited Karlsbad this year, as compared with 26,104 last year, and of these 15,588 were from foreign countries. Marienbad shows also a considerable increase, with 15,023 guests this year, including 7,737 foreigners. These data reflect clearly the situation in the Czechoslovak watering places at the present time and show that, while the country has returned to normal prewar conditions, political and economic conditions in most of the surrounding countries has discouraged many foreigners from visiting the watering places.
