Breweries · Historic Sites · Churches
Little Prague
The birthplace of one of the world's favorite beer brands, Pilsen features a compact city center packed with museums, galleries, churches, restaurants, and pubs. Located just 90 km (50 mi) west of Prague, the town offers travelers a comfortable base for day trips into the scenic western portion of Bohemia. The country's fourth largest city, Pilsen sprawls from its historical old town area into the surrounding suburbs, spread over gentle tree-covered hills. A city of workers and students, Pilsen lacks the glitzy charm of some of Bohemia's more popular vacation resorts, providing visitors with the lively energy of a modern urban center still largely unspoiled by commercial tourism. Take a peek at our world travel planner: Pilsen and its charms laid bare and easily scheduled.
