Things to see and do

Welcome to the city of beer - Pilsen

Pilsen is the heart of West Bohemia, the fourth largest city in the Czech Republic and the European Capital of Culture 2015.

The view from the country’s highest church tower at St. Bartholomew’s Cathedral is simply fantastic, offering a panorama that sweeps across one of Europe’s largest public squares, the renaissance city hall and the late-gothic water tower. The moorish-romanesque Great Synagogue is the second-largest synagogue in Europe and the third-largest in the world. Worth seeing is the West Bohemian Museum, West Bohemian Art Gallery and the J.K. Tyl Theatre.

Beer has been brewed in Pilsen since the city’s foundation and the first light, bottom-fermented lager beer was brewed here in 1842, becoming a registered world famous trademark “Pilsner Urquell” in 1898.

Families with children will enjoy a stroll through the Pilsen Zoo and botanical garden or Dinopark. You can also spend your time shopping at the Plzen Plaza.
