Pilsen is world famous for its beer -- it has some of the largest breweries in the Czech Republic and the brands Pilsner, Pilsner Urquell, and Gambrinus are well-known well beyond the boundaries of Europe. Once a fortified fortress, today Pilsen is a relatively small city with population of less than one hundred eighty thousand but it is one of the most affluent cities in the Czech Republic. You may not need to use public transportation, even if your Pilsen hostel is not very close to the main sights. However, the city high standard also reflects on the prices of the hostels in Pilsen, which are not very cheap but compensate with spacious rooms.

There are not many hostels in Pilsen and finding adequate accommodation can be challenging, especially if you're looking for a specific location. There are practically no Pilsen hostels in the very center of the city; most hostels in Pilsen are located in the Pilsen 3 or Pilsen 4 districts. If you look for information about Pilsen online and you cannot find it, you can also try the Czech spelling of the city -- Plzen.

Some of the most interesting sights include the Gothic St. Bartholomew's Cathedral (built in the thirteenth century), the Moorish Revival Great Synagogue (second largest in Europe), and the Town Hall. Pilsen was chosen to be the European Cultural Capital in 2015. One of the main attractions, of course, is a visit to the breweries -- this is highly recommended, particularly if you like beer. You can taste different beers and learn about beer production and the history of some of the most famous beer brands in the world. The city is situated at the confluence of four rivers -- the Radbuza, the Mze, the Uhlava, and the Uslava. Pilsen has also one of the best football teams in the Czech Republic -- FC Victoria Pilsen.
