Plzen Travel Guide: 123 reviews and 392 photos

I came to Plzen, or Pilsen as we Germans call it, to teach. There's a SOCRATES cooperation between my university and Zapadoceska Univerzita in Plzen which made it possible for me to go there for a week and teach 3 seminars to Plzen students of German.

I didn't expect too much of the city, especially as it is best known for its beer (Pilsener) 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.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:very nice place with lots of unexpected sights
  • In a nutshell:More than just Pilsener beer!

    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 :)

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