The history of the racetrack dates to 1899. Even in this far past, races were held in the spa town. And this tradition continues in the present. And even the beautiful Art Nouveau tribune has been preserved. When you sit down in it, you will see the groomed hippodrome that encloses a nine-hole golf course with eighteen greens.

The premises has undergone many hardships, but also enjoyed many bright moments, of course. The most interesting one in the recent past was perhaps 1990, when Karlovy Vary took over most of the races from the central Velká Chuchle racecourse, and the Presidential Cup, the St Leger, the Prague Grand Prix, and the Turf Grand Prix events were held here. In 1995, the Karlovy Vary racecourse hosted the Czech Derby.

The season regularly begins at the end of April with the European Aristocracy Racing Day. This is followed by the Karlovy Vary Double Mile and the Summer Cup for Mares in June. July is marked by the Spa Mile, and in August, you can watch the Karlovy Vary Prix and the Masis Prix. The season ends in mid-September with the Winter Queen Cup.



Stellplatz Hipodrom Karlovy Vary is a parking lot for caravans on site of the racecourse premises. Stellplatz is equipped with fully-fledged camper services.

“We are trying to expand the more than 120-year-long tradition of the racecourse in Karlovy Vary. In the middle of the racecourse, we constructed a golf course that complements the operations of the racecourse throughout the year, so that overall, the entire grounds are used to a greater degree.”
