CZ, Gutštejn – Romantic Ruin in Western Bohemia
heading (paragraph): Others
One of the most impressive ruins stands in western Bohemia. So if you are in Konstantinovy Baths, you have to go here. The ruins are dominated by a massive tower, which was previously connected to the northern palace. And if you're done for fear, look into the cellars below the south palace. On the way from the castle, we recommend going to the view over the valley, from here you can see it from a completely different perspective.
Přeštice will probably forever be associated with the Přeštice pig, which was bred here, but the history of the town on the river Úhlava dates back to St. Adalbert. It is also an ideal starting point for trips around the southern Pilsen region.
In my opinion, the region of Křivoklát is one of the most beautiful corners of our country. However, by far it doesn't consist only of Křivoklát Castle itself, but a large portion of its charm makes the local deciduous forests, the Berounka Valley and the landmarks that the area hides. One of the places worth visiting is the village of Nižbor thanks to the castle and its surroundings. Let's go to it together.
Rokycany is located about 17 kilometers of Plzen. It is on the main train track to Prague, and also near the D5 freeway. Many tourists only ride through the town. Nevertheless, Rokycany is worth paying a visit and it is not only for its picturesque town center, but nature and sights around as well.
Everybody knows Pilsner Urquell beer. This bottom-fermented lager was invented in the Kingdom of Bohemia half-way between Prague and Regensburg, Germany. It was founded in the city famous for Skoda locomotives, the tallest church tower in the Czech Republic, and the second largest synagogue in Central Europe. Plzen was declared the European capital of culture for 2015. It truly deserves the title. Lets join us to see what is waiting for us here!
Today, Lochotín is by most visitors to Pilsen associated with the area of botanical and zoological gardens, eventually with an amphitheater, but the area has a much more interesting history associated mainly with spa.
The inconspicuous mountains on a large part of the Czech border with Bavaria are among the most forgotten corners of our country. I think it is very wrong. I will now take you on a trip along the Branka nature trail, which will inspire you as much as every time the Bohemian Forest will inspire me.
Half-way from Plzen to Ceske Budejovice lays Strakonice on the confluence of the Otava and Volynka reviers. The town became famous for its international bagpipe festival, fezs, and “Cezetas” – motorbikes produced by Ceska Zbrojovka. Also, we can find here a preserved medieval castle, beautiful townhall in Reinassance Revival style, couple of medieval houses, or a partial Stonehenge replica. Nature around is also magnificent – Sumava’s foothills, and a vast area of South Bohemian ponds.
Zavírka and Linkův Cross are among the most mysterious places in the Brdy, which are associated with many legends. In winter you can also get to Zavírka on cross-country skis and the mysterious Link Cross will be best sought during the period of vegetation calm, so both places are ideal tips for a winter trip to Brdy.
