Plzen also known as Pilsen in English is a Czech city that every self-proclaimed beer lover needs to visit. Besides being a beer-lovers hub, Pilsen is also the fourth largest town in the Czech Republic and the European Capital of Culture of 2015.

Even though there is plenty to do in Pilsen, it is undeniable that its main attraction is its beer and the brewery – the Pilsen Urquell Brewery.

The Pilsen Urquell Brewery gave birth to pilsner beer back in 1842, which was quickly adopted in the entire world. Pilsner beer is so famous that pilsner-styled beers account for two-thirds of beer consumed worldwide. Czechs are aware of the fact, since we drink almost twice as much beer per capita as our American counterparts. Czechs drink the most beer per capita per day in the world.

There are several tours visitors can take at the Pilsen Urquell Brewery. The 2-hour tour will guide visitors through the beer-making process and its history while letting them taste several of their beers.

But there is more to Pilsen than its beer. Pilsen also has a zoo and a dinopark, popular among couples with children. There are several museums. One of the most popular museums in Pilsen is the Puppet Museum, which shows the history of puppetry and how puppets have evolved throughout the ages.

There is also an underground tunnel system that runs beneath the city. Visitors can also tour this 14th century tunnel system, while learning more about its history (hint: it is beer related).

Official website of Plzen is available in English and there are plenty of regularly updated travel tips. List of important happenings (mainly cultural) over the course of the current year can be found .

Pilsen Underground Museum

The ancient tunnel system that runs beneath Pilsen dates back to the 14th century. The 12 mile long tunnel system was used as a hideout during times of war and as a storage facility for the beer produced in the city. Visitors are not advised to visit the tunnels alone, since they can get lost rather easily. Luckily, there are plenty of guided tours available.

Pilsen Brewery Museum

Since Pilsen seems to be the de facto beer capital of the world, it is no surprise that most of its attractions revolve around the same theme. The Pilsen Brewery Museum will let visitors know everything they need to know about beer. As with most attractions in Pilsen, the tour ends with a free glass of beer.

    Martin,I wanted to thank you for providing car service and also acknowledge our driver--Patrick.I booked a car with you for a day trip excursion from Prague. You were very friendly and helpful over the phone. All my questions were answered, and the price was extremely reasonable.Patrick was an excellent driver and helpful in every way. I was so pleased with his service that I made an appointment on the spot for airport transfer later in the week. Once again, Patrick was right on time and very helpful in getting me to the airport and making sure that I was comfortable with my surroundings. Outstanding service!! I will use you again when I visit Prague, and I will recommend you (and Patrick) to all my colleagues. Sincerely, Brian
