Museu Jan Becher

O Museu Jan Becher, a menos de duas horas a oeste de Praga, é o lar de um dos licores mais queridos da República Tcheca, o Becherovka. No museu, os visitantes podem aprender sobre o licor, bem como visitar a destilaria e as caves originais. Enquanto você estiver lá, você também pode saborear este licor que é produzido há séculos. É feito de água Karlsbad, álcool, açúcar e uma mistura de ervas e especiarias, embora a receita exata seja conhecida por apenas duas pessoas hoje.

A empresa foi fundada há mais de dois séculos por Jan Becher, que inventou a receita em uma farmácia que hoje é o museu. A visita ao museu também permite aos visitantes conhecer a história dos primórdios da empresa e como o licor sobreviveu durante o regime comunista, quando a empresa foi obrigada a entregar a receita.

The basics

The museum is located in Karlovy Vary, Becherovka’s hometown, in the historic building that served as the original factory for more than 100 years. In the visitor’s center you can see vintage Becherovka bottles and unique items that belonged to the Becher family (inventors of the beverage) including their recipe book, awards, accounting books, and many other artifacts. The interactive part of the museum allows you to see and smell selected herbs and spices that make the base of the liqueur, taste the water from Karlovy Vary that is used in Becherovka, and experience the bottling line via a VR headset.

Several guided tours from Prague to Karlovy Vary include a stop at the Jan Becher Museum, helping you maximize your time by visiting multiple attractions in one day.
