What You Can Expect
Your factory visit will show you how pilsner was brewed and drunk in the past, and how it is brewed and drunk today. You'll visit the museum's collection documenting the brewery's 150-year history, and have lunch in the brewery's restaurant U Salzmannu (included in the tour price).
The Czech Republic's most famous glass factory is situated in the small town of Nizbor on the River Berounka (a tributary of the Vltava River), around an hour's drive from Prague. The factory tour reveals the complete history of glass production in Bohemia. You will also have the opportunity to buy glass products at the glass factory, at discounted prices.
Interesting places to visit. Especially the brewery and beer tasting.
Years ago I visited the Corning Glass Factory in New York where I saw their modern glass blowing techniques. I was quite impressed with this tour since the process is accomplished in a much more traditional manner with brick ovens. If I did not already have a large glass/crystal collection, I would have bought many pieces at the shop as their prices are fantastic. We also visited the Pilsner Urquell Brewery where you view a movie about the history of the brewery and can tour their operations. In addition, we went into the cellars where they aged the beer in large wooden barrels. We were also able to taste the beer straight from the barrel. It went down very smoothly. We enjoyed the tour and our guide was very nice.
