During a visit to the traditional Pilsen Brewery, you will be introduced to the history and intricacies of beer brewing. For over 160 years the brewery has produced a unique beer called Pilsner Urquell. This beer became the symbol of the Czech art of how to brew fine beer. Included in the tour of the brewery is of course a sample of this golden water from Pilsen. After a visit to the Brewery, you can go for a walk in the city centre, then have lunch in the local beer restaurant Spilka, which is renowned for its traditional Czech cuisine and Pilsner beer fresh on tap. Other sites worth seeing in the town are The Great Synagogue, which is the third-largest synagogue in the world, and Underground Pilsen – the old passageways below the city.
