Not sure how to get to the next destination?  I found the Information desk at the Plzen train station to be incredibly helpful and efficient, a saving grace really.  Although the woman did not speak English, she was able to immediately print me out a personalized schedule of all the connecting trains I would need to take to get to my next destination, despite it being a slightly complicated schedule!  So thankful!

If you think Pilzen is the world's beer capital, and that you will find a beer harem in the city, think again. The city is well worth a trip for its acrchitecture, its people, its histroy, but there is basically only one brand of beer in the whole town (Pilsener Urquill). You can tour the historic brewery, which ammounts to a nice hours (with tastings), if you like this sort of activity.

If you are interested in the history and production of the beer the brewery tour is the perfect match. The tour of the Pilsner Urquell brewery include a visit to the brewery cellars, where you can taste unfiltered and unpasteurized Pilsner Urquell on tap straight from oak lager barrels.
