The Karlovy Vary Region and the Karlovy Vary International Film Festival have teamed up to offer holders of Festival Passes interesting discounts. As its slogan (“one day is not enough”) indicates, the Karlovy Vary Region is home to many excellent tourist destinations worth visiting. We have chosen the best of these destinations and have put together a set of discounts that will be valid until the end of the 2017 season (depending on when each particular attraction is open to the public). Come and visit the Karlovy Vary Region even when not coming for the film festival, and get to know interesting new places. The Karlovy Vary Region is a tourist destination that has something to offer.
