Visit Pilsen in 2024

Located in the western part of the Czech Republic, Pilsen is a city renowned for its brewing traditions that date back to the 13th century. However, Pilsen is not just about beer. The city is a veritable open-air museum of Renaissance architecture, with the Republic Square being one of the largest and most charming in the country. The iconic Cathedral of St. Bartholomew dominates the skyline with the highest spire in the Czech Republic. The city is also home to the Pilsen Zoo and Botanical Gardens, one of the oldest and most visited in the country.
Pilsen was named the European Capital of Culture in 2015 and for good reason. It hosts several annual cultural events, including the Pilsen Fest, a festival of beer, food, and music, and the Liberation Festival, celebrating the end of World War II in Europe. Museums, art galleries, and theaters like the New Theatre and J.K. Tyl Theatre contribute to the city's rich cultural landscape.
In terms of modern attractions, the Techmania Science Center offers interactive exhibitions that both children and adults can enjoy. For those who prefer something more laid-back, the city offers beautiful parks and the serene Radbuza River, perfect for an afternoon stroll.
