Do you remember Spejbl and Hurvínek? The two marionettes, along with many other characters, were a part of my childhood. A visit to the Puppet Museum in Plzen brought back many memories.
There are places where you just become a kid again! The Techmania Science Center in Plzen is just such a place and you can marvel and have fun here for many hours.
There are always stories about cities that simply have to be told because they are impressive, incredible or just plain exciting. I have heard Plzen legends that simply have to be told.
Náměstí Republiky (Republic Square) is located in the historical centre of Plzen. Many streets lead from the edge of the centre to the square and it is impossible to miss it, if only because of the St. Bartholomew’s Cathedral standing there.
If you come to the beer city of Plzen, you want to drink beer. We tried to visit as many different restaurants, pubs and beer bars as possible in our short time in the city and to get to know as many different local beers as possible. Beer in Plzen is not to be missed.
The Plzen Ethnographic Museum is located in the Republic Square of the city. Here, in the heart of the city, an interesting exhibition has been placed in two historically connected houses.
