According to legend, Cleopatra helped preserve her beauty by bathing in milk. Maybe you're lactose intolerant. Or maybe you just prefer a brewski. In either case, the next time you're in the Czech Republic, head to the Chodovar family brewery for a therapeutic beer bath. Since 2006, the brewery's "beer wellness land" has been offering visitors a 20-minute soak in a tub of a special "bathing beer" specially brewed to stimulate the skin and internal organs, followed by a complimentary mug of the brewery's rock lager, for just $29. For a few dollars more, you can also get a massage and stay in an adjacent hotel for the evening [source: Chodovar].
