This paper deals with representations of the spa in the verse of Early Modern Times. The extant texts address several specific spa towns (Karlovy Vary, Kuks, Teplice, Luhačovice etc.). These texts were published either as separate prints or as supplements to spa guides. Such distinctions ordinarily determine their length. In part, these distinctions also determine the poem’s content and nature. Nevertheless, dissimilarities result from the varying times in which the poems were written. The period in which they were written also results in the differing classification of these pieces’ style. The paper will concentrate closely on two works representing Karlovy Vary: Encomion Carolinarum Thermarum… by Caspar Bruschius (1542) and Der Kaiser-Carls-Bad by Balthasar Ludewig Tralles (1756). Using the two works as an example, similarities and differences between the representations of the spa in the two eras, Renaissance Humanism and the Age of Enlightenment, will be found.
