"What a nice place!" Top 5 Page for this destination Plzen by King_Golo

Plzen Travel Guide: 123 reviews and 393 photos

I visited Plzen twice, once in 2007, once in 2008 - and both times to teach, not to get drunk on Pilsener beer! Back in those days, my university had a ERASMUS cooperation agreement with Plzen's university which enabled me to go there for a week twice and get to know a lovely city in the Czech Republic.

I didn't expect too much of the city, especially as it is best known for its beer and I don't drink beer. So what I expected were quite many drunk beer tourists. Fortunately, I didn't come across them! Instead, I came to a very nice city, full of beautiful art nouveau houses, street cafes and bars, many young people and much more.

See my Plzen tips for more information, virtually visit Prague, Marianske Lazne or Lazne Kynzvart with me - or continue browsing through my pages here.

    Nice page of Plzen. Looks like a pretty doll-house town. The underground tour and marionnette is mighty interesting. Perhaps, I get to visit one day. SL :)

    Golo, amazing updates here, I especially like the Spejbel and Hurvinek statue. :-)

    No picture of a tram?! I've been to Plzen in 2004. Thanks for bringing back memories.
