Tourist information and destination rating

Local time: 14:49:42, Altitude: 440m

The SOOS National Nature Reserve is a unique national nature conservation area with mineral springs. It is characterized by peatbog areas and so-called moffetes (i.e. mud volcanoes) . The SOOS National Nature Reserve is located in the Region of Karlovy Vary, some 6 km from Františkovy Lázně in the Czech Republic .


The territory of the SOOS National Nature Reserve is distinctive with co-called bergmehl, which is a soil layer with high content of salt and it is toxic for many vegetable species. The SOOS National Nature Reserve was established in 1964 and occupies the area of 221 hectares. The visitors who come to the SOOS National Nature Reserve are allowed to access just a small part of the protected territory (app. 1.2 km) .

Tourist trails

Tourists are required to use only the marked trails (a part of the trail is led on wooden pavements) . The SOOS National Nature Reserve offers the visitors a truly unique landscape - there is nothing like that anywhere in Europe. The information panels along the trail provide explanations about the formation of the region in the ancient times and descriptions of most significant localities.

Peatbog and moffetes

Due to the peatbog, the SOOS is characterized with specific vegetation and natural formations. The biggest attractions in the SOOS National Nature Reserve are: the locality called Císařský pramen (Emperor´s Spring) whose permanent temperature is 14-18 °C; and, of course, the moffetes i.e. the places where carbon dioxide bubbles out of the mud onto the surface. However, if you come during dry summer seasons, you will come across dried country with dominating white and yellow colours of the soil.
