Welcome to Plzeň, a medium-sized city 56 miles West of Prague, noteworthy as the birthplace of Pilsner beer and a mecca for beer lovers. Visiting the Pilsner Urquell Brewery and enjoying unfiltered, unpasteurized beer right from the barrel in the cold, damp historic cellar is an absolute must! By the way, “Pilsner” is German, not Czech, and literally means “of/from Plzen”? Na zdraví! Cheers!
