Just few of interesting points about Plzeň to add:


Plzeňský Prazdroj/Pilsner Urquell beer was the worlds first lager beer made in 1842

Plzeň synagogue is worlds 3rd largest next to Jerusalem and Budapest ones

Škoda machinery works founded in 1859, produce whatever but cars - those are produced in Mladá Boleslav, about 150 km from Plzeň

St. Bartholomew Cathedral is the tallest one in Czech rep., 102 m

City liberated by the US Army what was a controversial point for later communist propaganda

Next to Szeged and Salzburg, Plzeň belongs to three smallest cities with tram, bus and trolleybus network togehther

Petr Čech, Chelsea goalkeeper, was born in Plzeň
