What You Can Expect

Nizbor Bohemia Glass Factory Trip from Prague

Bohemia Glass Factory in Nizbor

Located less than an hour from Prague is the Nizbor Bohemia Glass factory, founded in 1903 and situated within the cosy town of Nizbor on the River Berounka. Today Nizbor glassworks produce Czech crystal, originally known as Bohemian crystal. Bohemian Crystal is a decorative glass which can made into several forms such as vases, champagne glasses, plates, decanters and much more. It is also thought that Bohemian crystal is believed to bring peace and warmth to a home and that even by looking through the beautiful glass increases people's concentration.

Throughout this trip you will be able to see glass being blown and cut as well as learning about the entire crystal making process.

Glass is a typical Czech product and there will also be an opportunity to purchase products for favorable discounts at the factory.

My wife and I had the luxury of being the only two individuals on this tour. Our guide was a wonderful gentleman who was retired. He was extremely knowledgeable and gave us many helpful tips about Prague, places to eat, and shop. The Glass Factory tour was informative, but most importantly, shopping in the factory's shop was worth the trip. We bought many wonderful items at reasonable prices.

I enjoyed the visit. Only criticism was that the initial communication was vague about hotel pick up but that was resolved after a short email exchange.

4 star rating: Recommended October 2014

Very good. Short but full of information. I was able to go inside the factory and see first hand all the step of glass making

4 star rating: Recommended July 2013

nice driver-the other guy in the car should have spoken more about the country side, politics anything-he mostly sat there. The other tour lady who went to the castle talked to her clients the whole way to the castle. I found her to be quite interesting. The tour itself was good-we needed more than 1/2 hour for 6 people to shop after the tour. The vehicle did stop and drop us off on the way home. That was good
