Trips

Pilsen

Brewery gate
Beer lovers should definitely not miss this trip. We will visit Pilsen, the town which gave the world a new type of beer, the renowned Pils. During the Pilsner Urquell brewery excursion, you will see the process of how this excellent beer is produced, and learn about its history. The best is saved for last, in the historical cellars you will taste a freshly brewed, non pasteurised beer directly from the barrel. Then you can enjoy lunch within the brewery ground at the famous Spilka restaurant, or/also visit a local microbrewery Purkmistr. If interested, we can also the visit the main Pilsen square with its beautiful renaissance town hall and gothic St. Bartholomeus cathedral which has the tallest spire in the country. If your trip is during the main season, than you have the choice of including a visit to Kozel chateau (ask for details).

Grand day out in Kutna Hora

Kutna Hora

A trip to Kutna Hora is a great escape from the hustle and bustle of Prague, and a chance to see the Czech countryside. After one hour drive you will find yourself in a sleepy atmosphere of a picturesque medieval town. Kutna Hora owes its origin to its silver mines, making it at one time the second richest town of the Czech Kingdom. Times of mining fever are over, but it left us with beautiful architectural jewels, such as the Gothic cathedral of St. Barbara, a unique 15th century stone well and numerous burgher houses. You will also visit the neighbouring village Sedlec, famous for its weirdly fascinating Ossuary (Church of Bones).

Terezin memorial

Entrance to the fortress

Terezin was established in the late 18th centrury as a fortress on a strategic location near the confluence of the rivers Labe and Ohre. The surrounding ramparts always remind people of its military past. Although it became sadly famous for its dark part in history, when during WWII, Terezin (at that time better known as Theresienstadt) was used as a ghetto. Here were concentrated Jews from Czechoslovakia and other European states, the majority of these were deported to extermination camps, others died here from the appaling conditions in place. The Small Fortress served as a Gestapo prison, nowadays it is a memorial. The tour can be extended by visiting nearby Litomerice. This outstanding historical town, suprisingly forgotten among tourists, is definitely worth exploring.
