Enjoy Pilsen like a local
Spring is already in full swing, and only a few weeks remain before the summer holiday begins. Take advantage of this opportunity and come to Pilsen, where not only numerous beer-related experiences are waiting for you but also beautiful architecture, delicious gastronomy, and, most importantly, countless intriguing events.
Summer, or at least the summer holiday, starts in the Czech Republic at the end of the Ice Hockey World Championship, which is the most popular sport here in terms of cheering for the players. Once the national team finishes playing its final game, all reasons to stay inside end with it, and the time for grilling, delightful beer gardens, and every cultural event imaginable begins. What else can you expect from the locals if you’re planning on visiting the heart of Europe for your summer holiday? Whether it’s in Pilsen or Brno, on the mountains or by the water, Czechs know how to enjoy summer, so come and join them for a wonderful time.
While wine growers may have their kingdom in South Moravia, Pilsen is the promised land for beer drinkers. They come to Pilsen for the Pilsner but also for the good food and wine. There only continues to be more and more places in Pilsen dedicated to wine and bubbly lovers, and they’re all great. What sort of places have you yet to visit, including those you wouldn’t even think to go to for wine?
With over 2000 castles, romantic spa towns, and beautiful architecture, there’s no denying that the Czech Republic is one of the most romantic countries in Europe. Out of the many romantic places you can visit, Pilsen has to be at the top of your list. Not only is Pilsen a charming city with a beautiful town square, the Bolevec Ponds, and its many parks, but it is also a super fun location to check out with your partner.

These plentiful reasons come in the shape of new events and activities that are getting ready for this year’s tourist season. Why shouldn’t you miss out on Pilsen this year? We’ve prepared for you three main highlights as well as a couple of other points, thanks to which the options for tourists visiting Pilsen just get more and more interesting.
Although Pilsen was the European Capital of Culture back in 2015, it remains a city that never sleeps and always has something exciting going on. All year long it offers an assorted range of cultural events. We’ve chosen a few of them in advance that you definitely shouldn’t miss out on in the first half of the year, and that’s whether you’re travelling alone or with the whole family. Pilsen will soon be offering extraordinary experiences, starting with cultural and music festivals, and continuing with gastronomical and beer celebrations.
If Pilsen is simply irresistible during the year, whether that may be in spring with its blossoming parks or summer with its atmosphere of festivals and outdoor terrace bars and restaurants, the Christmas season is twice as powerful. With the first Advent Sunday, where the giant Christmas tree is lit on Republic Square, the city turns into a wonder of lights, radiating the festive atmosphere. While enjoying a walk through the historical city centre, you’ll be enchanted by the decorations in the streets and adjacent parks. Where and how can you have the best experience possible?
Next to the world-famous Pilsner Urquell Gate, which adorns beer labels all over the world, Pilsen’s Gothic church, St. Bartholomew’s Cathedral, remains one of its dominant landmarks. Finally, after 100 years of waiting, the structure has been newly renovated. After a 30-year pause, the cathedral is opening its doors to the general public and expanding its offer to tourists with unique commentated tours.
With winter pretty much at our doorstep, are you wondering where you can go with your little ones in this unpleasant late-autumn weather? Get the whole family to pack their bags and set off for Pilsen! Aside from the traditional Christmas market, you can look forward to the many other tourist attractions. First, let us guide you to the experimental Techmania Science Centre and then to the Puppet Museum. And to finish things off, you’ll find the mythical figures of the Museum of Ghosts and Fairy Tales laying in wait for you as well as those of the interactive BLIK BLIK exposition, “The Mysterious Forest”.
You can journey to Pilsen not only for its traditional tourist attractions and fantastic gastronomy but also for its architecture and design. The bleak autumn weather directly encourages the discovery of secrets of Pilsen’s interiors created by the world-famous Adolf Loos. While walking the streets of Pilsen, you can also admire other interesting structures from the last century as well as those completed not too long ago. As November gives way to December, Pilsen Design Week will further diversify the beginning of Advent.
