HISTORY OF THE PARK
More than a hundred-year long history of the Yellow Spa Park dates from 1910. A recreation, sports and relaxation park was a cult place where both the inhabitants of Prague and visitors to the capital were meeting, along with famous personalities of their time, artists, sportsmen and actors.
HUNDRED-YEAR HISTORY OF THE PARK
Yellow Spa was basking in glory from the 1930’s to the 1960’s.
At this time, Yellow Spa was visited by such personalities as Vlasta Burian, the king of comics, Josef “Pepi” Bican, the famous football international, the film star Olga Schoberová and many other personalities.
DISASTROUS FLOOD IN 2002
It was not in the interest of the Communist regime to develop the famous traditions and history of the park, so it served exclusively as a public relaxation park and the responsible authorities did not provide enough funds for its development and modernization. With the coming of the new regime, a few unsuccessful projects appeared, due to which the park continued to fall into disrepair. The destructive flood in 2002 was literally a disaster – the whole park was devastated horribly.
A new hope for renovation was a new operator’s contract signed with Taiko Company. This company began immediately an extensive and complete reconstruction of the park, the aim being to restore its character and full operation for the public. Thanks to extraordinary financial investments and personal efforts, in 2005 the whole park with an area of more than 35,000 m2 was changed into a big multi-purpose sports and relaxation centre for the general public.
INNOVATIONS IN THE PARK IN 2016
Every year the park is enriched with new elements, facilities and activities. The last reconstruction, which was carried out before the start of the 2016 season, included, in addition to the new design of facilities, the construction of a completely new, big and comfortable space for refreshment and relaxation, reconstruction of roads and relaxation jetties, construction of new roofed spaces for music and cultural productions and many other innovations.
We look forward to seeing you in Yellow Spa. Your visit will certainly persuade you that Yellow Spa is not only a unique historic phenomenon, but mainly a lively and still attractive spot for entertainment, sports and relaxation.
