VENUE

The city of Plzeň (Pilsen) is located in Western Bohemia on the confluence of four rivers. With its 170 thousand inhabitants it is the fourth largest city in the Czech Republic and an important industrial, commercial, cultural, and administrative center.

Plzeň is well known for its brewing tradition. The trademark Pilsner-Urquell penetrated all over the world thanks to the traditional recipe, high quality hops and good wells. Beer lovers will also appreciate a visit to the Brewery museum or the Brewery itself.
 
Apart from its famous beer, Plzeň has a lot of hidden treasures in its core. Plzeň can pride itself on the second largest synagogue in Europe. The old city center is dominated by a 13th-century Gothic church which features the highest tower in Bohemia (102.34 m). It is possible to go up the stairs and admire the panorama. Not far from the church is a splendid Renaissance Town Hall from 1558 and plenty of pleasant cafes and pubs.
 
Plzeň has also a beautiful historical underground – under the city center there are 25 km of tunnels. Visitors can pass through the most beautiful part of this labyrinth.
 
It is also recommended to visit the Zoo having the second largest space for bears in Europe and keeping the Komodo dragons – large lizards existing in only a few Zoos in the world.
 
In the neighborhood of the city there are castle Radyně and hunting-seat Kozel. St. Peter's Rotunda in Starý Plzenec was built in the 10th century.
 
The University of West Bohemia in Plzeň provides a variety of courses for both Czech and international students. It is the only institution of higher education in this part of the country which prepares students for careers in engineering (electrical and mechanical), science (computer science, applied mathematics, physics, and mechanics), education (both primary and secondary), economics, philosophy, politology, archaeology, anthropology, foreign languages, law and public administration, art and design. map
