City Tour


style="text-align: justify" The royal city of Pilsen was founded in 1295 by Wenceslas II at the confluence of four rivers – the Úhlava, Úslava, Radbuza and Mže. Its advantageous location at the crossroads of major trade routes contributed to the rapid economic development of the city, which soon became a centre of cultural and humanistic traditions. The high cultural and social level of the city is reflected in its unique building development. Valuable monuments include the Gothic St. Bartholomew’s Cathedral, the Renaissance town hall, a Franciscan monastery and a Jewish synagogue. During the age of industrialization in the 19th century, industrial giants, including the Skoda engineering complex and world-famous Pilsner Urquell brewery, were founded in the city. The founding of the University of West Bohemia and a bishopric added further cultural and spiritual dimensions to the city.

Today, Pilsen is the dynamic and modern metropolis of western Bohemia. It is home to many major firms and industrial companies, universities and medical schools. It has an extensive network of hotels and restaurants, as well as a rich cultural and sports programme and well-developed tourist infrastructure. Its exceptional quality was confirmed when it earned the title European Capital of Culture for 2015.

Pilsen covers 138 km2, and with nearly 170 thousand inhabitants, it is the fourth largest city in the Czech Republic.

Pilsner Urquell Brewery


The Friday´s supper will be held in a stylish Pilsner restaurant “Secese representation halls”. It is situated directly in the famous Pilsner Urquell brewery complex. Townspeople owning the right to brew beer wanted the Pilsner Urquell Brewery to have representative spaces for visitors where they could hold general meetings. Therefore, in 1908 they began reconstruction of one of the buildings.

Works were successfully completed and the unique Art Nouveau halls have since then welcomed many important business partners and celebrities such as TG Masaryk, E. Beneš, V. Havel and V. Klaus. The beer house features a lavish selection of the traditional Czech and modern cuisine. You can also enjoy the draught beer and explore the unique magic spirit of the Pilsner restaurant.

The brewery atmosphere can be tasted with every sip of carefully nurtured Pilsner Urquell beer. You can enjoy not only delicious food and drink, but also rewarding cultural experience in the restaurant. The band performance is a unique event, characterized by an amazing musical variety. The ensemble focuses on the traditional Czech folk culture. You can sing and dance during the performance. Musicians in folk traditional costumes create an unforgettable atmosphere through their music.
