Plzen

Plzen (or Pilsen) is known world-wide as the place where the famous Pilsner Urquel beer is made. But a tour to the brewery is not the only activity we can enjoy in this city.

There are not many places in the Czech Republic which offer a tour of the underground passages under the city center, or a Gothic Cathedral (consecrated to St. Bartholomew) with a 102m spire. The Renaissance Town Hall is worth seeing, as are the city’s fortifications, now mostly turned into a green belt around the center of the town.

The Great Synagogue of Pilsen is the largest synagogue in the Czech Republic, second largest in Europe and third largest in the world. It was built between 1888 and 1893 in the Moorish-Romanesque style when the Jewish community of Pilsen was large and prosperous. The interior boasts excellent acoustics and is used for concerts and exhibitions.

The recently opened Patton Memorial Pilsen is the only museum in the Czech Republic devoted to the American Military. It covers the historical events of the year 1945 in West Bohemia and provides an insight into the liberation of the region by American forces at the end of WW2.

Pilsen can be reached from Prague in about an hour, by bus or private car. More information about the Pilsner Brewery is available here and more details about the city itself can be accessed here.
