Plzen (Pilsen) isn't just the home of the beer that bears its name. It is also a fascinating city, something that is clear from the fact that it is the 2015 European Capital of Culture. Plzen is easily accessible from Prague (1.5 hrs journey). Sitting on a major road to Germany, Plzen can be combined with a stay in Regensburg (2.5 hrs) or Nuremburg (3 hrs).
