Before I left on my trip to the US, my in-laws visited us here in Germany and we took a 3 days trip to the Czech Republic. We spent 2 days in Prague and a day in Pilsen – the birth place of the pilsner beer.
I really really enjoy Prague every time I go, it’s just so very beautiful. And, I recommend if you ever have the chance to go that you take it.
Bellow I will share with you some of the many pictures that I took while in Prague and on our tour of the Pilsner Urquell brewery. Enjoy!
The tour starts in a HUGE elevator.
Then, there is a video about the brewing process.
A cool beer-cap “road” in the bottling plant.
There are kilometers of Beer Cellars.
Have a taste of unfiltered Beer – quite bitter!
Once the tour ends, enjoy a game of extra large beer chess.
Enjoy a “Beer Spa” at home.
They love their ketchup!
There are many beautiful sites for a foodie! We actually missed their anual food festival by a day…
At one of my favorite candy stores in town you can find all these exciting treats:
They will chocolate-dip fruit for you on the spot.
Why everyone comes to this candy store – to watch them make these delicious little hard candies:
It’s rolled and then hand cut.
Passion fruit hard candies.
Banana, watermelon, and cherry flavor candies.
This hard candy can be found in the Chocolate Story Museum in the heart of downtown Prague. Next trip I plan on visiting the chocolate museum…seem interesting!
