Renowned as the home of the pilsner beer, Plzen is a city located in the West Bohemia region of the Czech Republic. Beyond beer, it also features a number of impressive landmarks some of which include St. Bartholomew's Cathedral and the Great Synagogue.
A visit to the Pilsner Urquell Brewery is an especially popular attraction for those looking to experience the historic home of the original pilsner beer. Established in 1842, the brewery with its brewing cellars and a bottling plant is open for visitors to tour. For those interested in the wine scene, the Bohemia Sekt Winery, located just 10 km outside the city, is the largest Czech Champagne Winery and can be reached by train.

As far as architecture goes, one unique feature to the city's skyline is the Gothic St. Bartholomew's Cathedral, which was founded in the late 13th century. Today its tower is recorded as the highest in the Czech Republic at 335 feet (102.26 meters). Another landmark is the Great Synagogue - the second largest synagogue in Europe and third largest in the world (after synagogues in Jerusalem and Budapest). The Town Hall, built in the mid-16th century, is another Renaissance masterpiece with a structure based on the designs of an Italian architect, Giovanni de Statia. Beneath the entire old town center, there is also a historic network of underground cellars and tunnels which extends up to three levels. It can be accessed from the Brewery Museum on Veleslavínova Street.
After Prague, Plzen is the second biggest city in Bohemia. The hub of the city is its historical center, where most of the main attractions are concentrated. Some of these features include the monumental Gothic cathedral with the tallest spire in the Czech Republic, the second biggest Synagogue in Europe, several museums and galleries, and a number of beautiful historical buildings. A stroll through the historical center will reveal a charming main square, a variety of local cafes and restaurants, and a number of parks perfect for a serene escape to the greenery of the city.

Admiring Plzen's historical architecture and experiencing its famous pilsner brew are just two of the many activities that the city has to offer. Additionally, many visitors also spend some time at the Plzen Zoo which was founded in 1926 - the second oldest zoo and largest in the country. It is home to more than 1,300 species and over 6,500 individual animals. Species include Indian rhinos, Sudanese cheetahs, Liberian hippos, Komodo dragons, giant tortoises, lemurs, chimpanzees, giraffes, Siberian tigers, snow and Chinese leopards, penguins and many others - each living within a recreation of its own natural habitat. The Techmania Science Center and Puppet Museum also have a variety of activities for all ages, while other museums include the West Bohemian Museum, the Brewery Museum, the Ghost Museum, and the Diocese Museum.

A mainstay of Czech side dishes is the dumpling - usually sliced, potato-based, filled with smoked meat, and served with spinach or sour cabbage.
