    A really fascinating underground tour of the complex of tunnels and small rooms that families allowed to brew beer in the 14th century dug by hand. Be warned, this tour originates from a building that is NOT within the Pilsen Brewery, but is in the old city town square, which is at least a 20 minute walk from the Brewery. We didn't realize this and by the time we found the building, our tour had started. The women at the ticket office were quite upset with us, and while we tried to explain we would be happy to join the next tour in whatever language it was in, as we realized we were late. Just a note to them - yelling at us in Czech doesn't make us understand you any better. But one employee did walk us down throught the tunnels to catch up with the English tour, which was about 10-15 minutes into the tour, although she clearly wasn't happy about doing this. Our male tour guide was wonderful - he obviously loved the history and heritage of his city. There are some extremely tight spaces to walk through, so if you have a thing for being in tight spaces underground, this might not be for you. But the few tight spaces open up into larger spaces that are not so confined. The area around the Underground Tour office is within the old city square and is beautiful!

    So much more interesting and educational then the Pilsner Urquell Brewery tour. This place provides tons of background on brewing beer with a large number of artifacts. Everything in English also.

    Impressive from the outside but from the inside even more so. Lavish but in a stylish way. Much bigger than I expected and understand one of the largest in the world. Hols small exhibitions at times

    St Bartholomew’s is most impressive from the outside (you can pay a small fee to climb to the top). The Christmas market here featured a blacksmith, and a mini petting zoo with pony/donkey/goats, as well as the usual food/drinks/souvenirs/ornaments/gingerbread. Some of the vendors are more friendly/welcoming than others.

    This castle ruin is easily accessible from the center of the town Rabí. The parking now costs 100 Kč per car, guided tour 160 Kč per person, discounted 130 Kč. We chose limited unguided walk for 50 Kč as we were pressed for time. The short access directly to the ticket booth and castle gate is extremely uneven and steep, full of jutting stones and slippery on a rainy day when we were there. Once you get in, the walking gets much easier, as there are more level dirt paths and maintained grass areas. Inside the restored horse stable was a nice photo exhibition of Šumava localities. When you are done here, consider a stop at the well known restaurant in the town square.

    Brighter building facing the square and church. Looks like a classic old town house from a few hundred years ago but stand out

    We discovered this castle while meandering our way on the back roads from Prague to Bavaria and I'm so glad we stopped. It's a nice hike up to the castle from the parking area, part is paved and part is rock. The rock trail is in good repair and easy to walk. Parking does have a cost and it is either Czech bills or card.

    The castle has a low entry fee, 450 Czech for a family of 3, so about $20. To see inside the castle, you need a guide and that is what the fee is for. Zdenek was our guide and he was great. The tour is in Czech but we were given text to follow and Zdenek spoke great English and was able to answer any questions we had.

    While this place is off the main roads, it was totally worth the stop.

    For 90lc, it's a small tour in the underground of the church. Some history with videos and one small expo, and the highlight are the mummies, well maintained. All in English and German explained.

    Klatovy is a really lovely town with an impressive main square that features the Black Tower and the Cathedral next door.

    Also be sure to check out the White Tower a few blocks away and the church next door to it.

    Klatovy is a royal town and worthwhile going out of your way to visit.

    We rated our experience five out of five,I’ll explain why…..
    I was in the Czech Republic looking for a new job. I have been a miller for the past 52 years but recently I have become gluten intolerant so I had to leave my windmill.
    A lady who works behind the kiosk selling fags and booze in the co-op told me that in the Czech countryside they are screaming out for mango pickers and mechanics. I happen to be useless at both so I went immediately.
    I found this place as I was looking for something to eat and boy oh boy was I glad I found it.
    The food was delicious,I would tell you all about it but I don’t know how to describe the pleasure I felt.
    The archbishop (perhaps architecture) was very pleasant and I considered touching the walls to congratulate them but there was a sign saying “ pleez no tutchy tutchy ze valls, tutchurz vill bee promiscuous “ so I did.
    I was aware of the history behind this building and I asked the bishop how the pills were made and why put them in a glass bottle?
    He gave me an explanation but I’m pretty sure that was not a true answer.
    The health and safety officer was incredibly knowledgeable about the building and explained that it had never fallen down or caused an injury to anyone in the last 7 years.
    I was offered a job nearby,in a sardine pecking factory which I took immediately and enjoy very much. At first,I thought they had made a spelling mistake “ sardine pecking factory “??? They hadn’t,my new job involves me pecking sardines for 8 and a half hours a day.
    VERY HAPPY

    We came here for the unique mix of old and new style castle merged in one. And yes, for the children in hopes of bow and arrow shooting. And yeehah! There were three options, for a small extra fee (40czk): regular, cross bow and a trebuchet (katapult). My children loved this place. Also the small chess like game and the exhibition with 'build your own castle' blocks got them going.

    We did not do the rest of the castle because we'd known the tours are to boring for kids. Adult me would have liked to. We skimmed the surrounds of the bridge pillars and climbed some rocks in stead.

    I would deduct a point for the restaurant where they don't have an English menu, but honestly the food looked good. Shame though we dare not gamble lunch there with the kids because of that. Possible improvement there.
    We would come again if in region.

    The monastery was founded in 1115 by Duke Vladislav I. The Church of the Assumption of the Virgin Mary was rebuilt between 1712-1726 Jan Blažej Santini-Aichel in his distinctive Gothic-Baroque style. There are two tours available either Chateau or Monastery. Before the Monastery tour we joined the Mass (held just once a month). The tour is about 80 min not 60 minutes as advertised. The monastery is newly reconstructed , but still continuing, on many places you can see the panels with pictures before and after the reconstruction. During the tour you can see the live on monks in the monastery and the convent their accommodation, meals, their every day life and work typography, herbs production, gardening etc. The tours ends in the church with beautiful altar, frescoes, sculpture mainly from Matyas Bernard Braun and organs. An eight-pointed star is marked on the floor of the church where the ships cross called Marian star. It is sometimes said to be Santini's symbol. The internal height of the dome is 39 m. The Monastry tour price for adult 200 CZK. At the entrance you can find restaurant offering Czech traditional Czech fare. Outside seating available.
