ABOUT Pilsen

Pilsen: Where Beer, History, and Culture Flow Together

Welcome to Pilsen, the birthplace of one of the world’s most beloved beverages and a city steeped in rich history and culture. Nestled in the heart of the Czech Republic’s Bohemian region, Pilsen invites you to explore its brewing heritage, historic landmarks, and vibrant arts scene.

Begin your journey at the Pilsner Urquell Brewery, where the iconic Pilsner Lager was first brewed in 1842. Take a guided tour of the brewery to learn about the beer-making process, explore the historic cellars, and enjoy a tasting of fresh, unpasteurized Pilsner straight from the source.

Wander through the charming streets of the Old Town, where colorful Renaissance buildings and Gothic churches transport you back in time. Admire the ornate façade of the Cathedral of St. Bartholomew, stroll along the picturesque Republic Square, and explore the historic underground tunnels that once served as beer cellars.

Discover Pilsen’s rich cultural heritage at the Pilsen City Museum, the West Bohemian Museum, and the Puppet Museum, showcasing the city’s history, art, and folklore. Experience the vibrant arts scene at the Josef Kajetán Tyl Theatre, the DEPO2015 Cultural Center, and the Pilsen House of Arts, where performances, exhibitions, and events celebrate creativity and innovation.

Indulge in Pilsen’s culinary delights, where traditional Czech cuisine meets international flavors. Sample local specialties like svíčková (beef sirloin in cream sauce), bramboráky (potato pancakes), and koláče (sweet pastries), accompanied by a pint of Pilsner beer or a glass of Moravian wine.

Join a Free Walking Tour to uncover Pilsen’s hidden gems with knowledgeable local guides. From the tranquil parks of Škvrňany and Bory to the vibrant neighborhoods of Slovany and Doubravka, each step reveals a new facet of this dynamic city.
