    Pilsen, Czech Republic

    August 25, 2016 in Czech Republic

    On day 4, the claim of the world's largest brewery drew us out to Pilsen, a town about 60 miles South West of Prague. We booked an English tour of the Pilsner Urquell brewery and had about an hour before it began to explore the town that we accessed via a park with ponds. Pilsen had been City of Culture 2015 and it was well worth a look round its large and colourful square that had 4 large golden Greek letters spouting refreshingly cool water.

    The brewery tour was the best Vicky had been on. We were shown both the old and new production plants in an interactive and engaging 90 minute presentation that concluded in a trip to the cold underground cellars and a sample of the produce.

    We'd planned an evening bbq but arrived back at the campsite later than planned so Will worked his magic with the griddle pan on the hob instead :)

    Beer, Again

    June 2 in Czech Republic

    We're enroute to Prague and our driver happened to know about a little brewery on the way.

    In the town of Pilsner is home to Pilsner Urquel, a beer now colloquially referred to as Pils. It's one of the most recognized lager beers. And for good reason; it's a great lager beer.

    Nach langer Suche.......

    July 10 in Czech Republic

    Ein Road trip, der es in sich hatte. Kilometer durch dünn besiedelte Waldlandschaften immer Richtung Prag. Wir hatten nicht immer die Orientierung aber sind letztendlich an einem sehr idyllischen Campingplatz bei Pilsen gelandet. Jetzt noch ein lecker Feierabendbierchen vor der ersten Nacht im Bus.

    Vendredi, 24 juillet 2015
    Nous quittons Regensburg et le Danube et continuons en direction de l'est. Nous achetons notre pic-nic à Fürth im Walde, juste avant la frontière tchèque. Nous devons faire tout le trajet jusqu'à Plzen (80km) où nous nous installons au Autocamp Ostende pour enfin dîner. Il n'y avait aucune place de parc sur cette grande route. Le camping est idylliquement situé au bord d'un petit lac. Nous nous lançons à la découverte de Pilsen et des transports publics, mais en premier lieu, il nous faut des couronnes tchèques pour acheter un ticket. Tous ces problèmes résolus, nous allons directement à la Brasserie de la Pilsner Urquell où nous assistons à une visite guidée de plus de 90min. tres intéressante (avec dégustation évidemment). Nous admirons ensuite la belle Place de la République, la Republiky náměsti, l'hôtel de ville et la cathédrale sv. Bartoloměje. Un bon souper tchèque et de bonnes bières de la ville nous attendent chez U Salzmannù (l'addition pour nous deux fr. 20), une bonne adresse dénichée grâce au routard.Read more

    "It's 4pm and 33' outside"

    September 17, 2015 in Czech Republic

    This morning we went to the documentationszekum reichspartagsgelaende, or the 'nazi documentation centre/party rally grounds. It turns out that Nuremberg was one of Hitlers favourite places. It was a very interesting musuem, it detailed the conceptualisation of the Nazi movement, how it gained momentum and the demise. Strangely though, it didnt detail how things ended for Hitler (it did for his team of ministers). It was a silent musuem so we walked around with little speakers to listen to the displays. it was all housed in a rally ground that Hitler and Speer had designed and partially constructed. It was very surreal walking the same places that were featured in the photos/videos.

    Then we drove about 2 hours to Pilsen in Czech Republic. We crossed the boarder, went over a hill and the temperature went from 19 to 33! After we checked in we ventured in to the city for and got a bit lost after we got off the bus. The wrong streets are a bit "bleek"!

    No prizes why we're in a town named Pilsen. We're heading on a beer tour tomorrow then on to Prague. Miss you all xo
