Mariánské Lázně (in German: Marienbad) is a spa town in the Czech Republic. The pictures show the health spa, particularly the main cast-iron colonnade.
The stamp honors Josef Bican, the famous Czech-Austrian football player. After World War II, he refused to play for Juventus Turin because he feared the Communists would come to power in Italy. Instead, he decided to stay in Czechoslovakia - how ironic!
