The name Marienbad (now: Mariánské lázně) first appeared in 1786, since 1865 it has been a town. Then a second period of growth, the town's Golden Era, came. Between 1870 and 1914 many new hotels, colonnades and other buildings, designed by Friedrich Zickler, Josef Schaffer, and Arnold Heymann, were constructed or rebuilt from older houses. In 1872 the town got a railway connection with the town of Cheb (then town by its German name Eger) and thus with the whole Austrian-Hungarian Empire and the rest of Europe.
The town soon became one of the top European spas and it was very popular with celebrities and rulers who often returned there, among them were such names as Johann Wolfgang Goethe, Frédéric Chopin, Thomas Edison, Richard Wagner or Prince Friedrich of Saxony, English king Edward VII, the Russian Czar Nicholas II, and Emperor Franz Joseph II and many others. At those times, about 20,000 visitors came every year.
It remained a popular destination between WWI and WWII. The German population was expelled after WWII. After the communist coup-d'état in 1948; it got sealed from most of its foreign visitors. After the return of democracy in 1989 a lot of effort was put into restoring the town into its original character. Nowadays it's not only a spa town but also a popular holiday resort thanks to its location among the green mountains of the Slavkovský les and the Český les, sport facilities (the town's first golf course was opened in 1905 by the British King Edward VII) and the proximity to other famous spa towns, such as Carlsbad (Karlovy Vary) or Franzensbad (now: Františkovy Lázně).
