Plzen is a large commercial, industrial and cultural center of Bohemia. The city is often referred to as "the deposit of beer," because one of the most popular and internationally famous breweries is located here. Plzen has quickly gained popularity among fans of this amber drink, but beer is not the only reason why thousands of tourists try to get to this beautiful city.
Despite the fact that Plzen was badly damaged during the Second World War, a part of the cultural and historical heritage was saved. One of the main attractions is located in the center of the city. This is the Church of St. Bartholomew. The height of one of the churchâ€™s towers reaches 102 feet. This is the tallest building in the country. Several more old buildings can be seen near Republic Square. Here you will also see the local City Hall - a beautiful building in the renaissance style. West Bohemian Gallery is also located nearby. Here are kept the works of famous medieval Czech painters, as well as paintings by made contemporary authors.
Your excursion to the Museum of the Underground Tunnels will be one of the most exciting events. Of course, no excursion route can be done without visiting the local brewery. Within just one hour visitors will get acquainted with the technology of brewing; they will be able to explore the process in details and, of course, take part in the tasting of the prepared product. On the territory of the factory is located a museum that will provide visitors with the information about the history of the brewing business and will demonstrate curious collections of equipment and other attributes associated with beer. One of the most popular bars in the city is located near the factory. The beer here is always fresh and the atmosphere is relaxing and calm. If you manage to visit Plzen in October, you will be able to take part in a large celebration - Beer Festival.
