As part of the Plzen Capital of Culture 2015 project, a meeting place for culture and creativity was created on the site of a tram depot. Events take place here regularly and the site is definitely worth a visit.
Beer is omnipresent in Plzen. A place to perfectly immerse yourself in the brewing activity of the city is the historical underground of Plzen. Guided tours start regularly in the building of the Brewery Museum and take you into the cellar corridors of the city.
Plzen offers its visitors a wide range of restaurants in all price ranges. Cheap food in Plzen is possible not only outside the historic city center, even there you can find restaurants frequented by Czechs, where the price level is not exaggerated.
On the park ring in Plzen you pass a fountain, which stands directly in front of an impressive neo-Renaissance building. This building is the main building of the West Bohemian Museum in Plzen.
I follow a sign on the street and reach an inconspicuous door via a courtyard entrance. Behind it is the Museum of Religious Art of the Plzen Diocese.
The Old Synagogue in Plzen is not easy to find. We had not read up on it in advance, so we must have walked past the entrance twice. A large green dot on the road indicates the sight, but if you are on the “wrong” side of the road, you will not see it.
