This trip combines two of our tours - visits to two sites guaranteeing the top quality of two most famous typical Czech products: glass and beer.If you want to learn something about Czech people you cannot miss this tour. In Pilsen, (a metropolis of Western Bohemia), beer has been brewed since the town was founded in 1295. But the real Pilsner known in the world these days is connected with the name of Pilsner Urquell which is brewed in the Prazdroj brewery built in 1842. Since that time brewers all over the world have been trying in vain to imitate this beer!
Your visit to the factory will help you to understand how Pilsner (this bread which flows) was brewed and drank in the past and how real Pilsner is brewed and drank today. The museum collections document the brewery’s 150 year long history.
The most famous glass factory is situated in a small town Nizbor on the Berounka river (a tributary to the Vltava river) not far from Prague. On your way around the factory you will learn about the whole history and the contemporary period of glass production in Bohemia. There is an excellent opportunity to buy glass products at the glass factory Nizbor for favourable discounts.
