Address:West Bohemia, Czech Republic

Plzeň has the highest church tower in Czechia... and the best Pilsner Urquell beer. Tour here!

The city was founded in the 13th century by King Wenseclas II and is located in West Bohemia. It has become an important industrial, cultural, commercial and administrative center dominated by the highest church tower in the Czech Republic - the Gothic St. Bartholomew Cathedral.

If you want to have some great views of the historic city centre (which include the Renaissance City Hall, Baroque reconstruction of the Archdeacon’s house and Franciscan Monastery) we highly recommend to climb up the tower. 

The Great Synagogue

was built in the late 19th century and is located near the city centre. It is the second largest in Europe and the third largest synagogue in the world. The synagogue also serves as an important exhibition place as well as a fantastic concert venue. 

Festivals and events

Plzeň hosts some of the locally and internationally well known events and festivals, i.e the Smetana Days, the Theatre Festival, International Drawing Biennial, Skupa’s Plzen, and the International Big-Band Festival. The Liberation Festival is a special event taking place in early May giving thanks to the U.S. Army who liberated Plzeň. People are freely dancing in the streets, you can hear jazz everywhere...
