Cheers to European Capital of Culture 2015
if you’re a fan of fine beer, then there’s extra cause to celebrate the Bohemian city of Plzeň’s designation as a 2015 european Capital of Culture. in addition to its fine museums, cultural events and architecture, Plzeň (also known as Pilsen) in the Czech Republic has been a hub of beer making since the 13th century. at the Plzeňský Prazdroj brewery, home to the esteemed Pilsner Urquell lager beer, you can explore an exhibition of ingredients, the historic brew house and modern bottling plant as well as enjoy a tasting of unfiltered beer tapped from oak barrels. the restaurant-pub attached to the Brewery Museum is a top spot to sample traditional Czech cuisine.
