Plzeň

The birth place of Pilsner

One of the Czech Republic’s prettiest and most underrated cities, Plzeň is a must-see for lovers of beer and architecture. The city’s main square is a stunner, ringed by gothic and renaissance buildings and crowned by the imposing town hall. The old town is packed with narrow streets and atmospheric squares, overlooked by churches and dominated by the towering spires of the cathedral. Beer lovers will want to visit the Pilsner Urquell brewery, just outside the city centre, while art lovers should check out the Škoda Museum, one of the country’s best. Plzeň is also a great place to eat, with a wealth of restaurants serving up traditional Czech cuisine.
