When one says Pilsen, most people imagine beer. The legend that gave name to all Pilsners and Pils types was born here more than 170 years ago. Nevertheless, in Pilsen you can taste much more. The historical city centre offers plenty of gems which remind their visitors of its rich history such as the Gothic St Bartholomew‘s Cathedral, Renaissance City Hall, the labyrinth of underground corridors or the unique Great Synagogue, the fourth largest in the world. Thanks to that, Pilsen obtained title European Capital of Culture for the year 2015.
