Beer Tour to Prague and Czech Republic

YOUR ITINERARY:

PragueDay 1

On your arrival at Prague airport, meeting with your individual guide and transfer to your hotel.
"Royal Road" — our introductory tour around Prague and first acquaintance with Czech pubs
Beer TourThe Royal Road passes through the whole of medieval Prague from the Powder Tower to Prague Castle. For centuries this was the route taken on Coronation Day by the new king in his royal carriage, accompanied by a solemn procession of royal guards, nobles and aristocrats, and high-ranking members of the Church. The entourage alighted at Saint Vitus Cathedral, where the royal regalia were in the ready to crown the new king and invest him with his powers. Today we will follow in the footsteps of kings along this 400 year-old route, and view what their royal eyes looked upon…
Lunch in the Czech pub "U Hrocha"
The Czech pub U HrochaLunch at the traditional Czech pub U Hrocha is not a tourist attraction, but it is an honest-to-goodness treat for beer aficionados! U Hrocha serves up the best beer, hands down - Plzen! While you whet your whistle there are plenty of traditional Czech pub dishes to sample, such as the soft, pickled Hermelin cheese, and fried pork fillet with potato salad. If you are really hungry, nothing beats koleno, a huge pork knee with horseradish that you can easily share round with all your table companions!

Prague — Krušovice — Karlový VaryDay 2

Breakfast at the hotel.
Full day excursion to Karlovy Vary with the visit to Krušovice Brewery
Krušovice

Krušovice BreweryOn the way to Karlový Vary and Loket, we will stop off at the city famed for its world-class Krušovice beer, brewed here since 1581. Be forewarned: in 1583, when the Emperor Rudolph II stopped in Krušovice to taste the unique flavor of the brew, he ended up buying the brewery for the Royal Crown. Here, in the heart of the Krušny Mountains, amidst the pure spring waters and sweet scented hops of the fields surrounding Krušovice, you will experience what goes into making this fabled brew. Mother Nature and the skills of famed brewers combine to create this unique liquid gold. Our tour ends with a sampling of Krušovice’s three varieties of beer: dark, light and light ležak. Moreover, as at any taste testing, no one will limit your consumption!


Karlový Vary

Karlový VaryIn 1358, while out on an Imperial Hunt, Emperor Charles IV spied one of the deer mortally wounded by his party fall at a small spring in the woods. As he rode towards it, the deer roused, lapped at the spring waters and, to his amazement, leapt up and bounded away. The inexplicable curative powers of the spring so impressed the Emperor that he ordered his court architects to build a hunting lodge at its source. This is the legend behind the founding of the spa city, Karlovy Vary, and its city symbol is taken from the little deer “that got away” that day 600 years ago.

Karlový VarySince then Karlovy Vary has been known as the cosmopolitan European spa with renowned curative energies – Goethe and Beethoven, as well as a few emperors, took “the cure” here. This graceful, ancient spa, surrounded by forested hills, with a rich history and Belle Epoch architecture, has long been considered one of Europe’s most beautiful cities. A wonderful walking tour around the city center awaits you in Karlovy Vary, where you will have the opportunity to visit the Moser Glass Factory with its famed souvenirs from local porcelain craftsmen.

Lunch in one of local restaurants of Karlový Vary
Return to Prague.

PragueDay 3

Breakfast at the hotel
Walking tour "With the Good Soldier Schweik around Prague"
With the Good Soldier Schweik around PragueThis is a thoroughly entertaining tour built around the antics of the Czechs’ most beloved buffoon & boozer, known the world over as The Good Soldier Schweik. Our inspiration for the tour comes from Jaroslav Hašek’s hilarious satire of the same name, set in the dying days of the Austro-Hungarian Empire and the First World War. We will visit the pubs and taverns connected with Good Soldier Schweik’s numerous misadventures. And there is no better place to start than at “U Kalicha” (The Chalice), his favorite watering hole! It was here, under a fly-spattered portrait of Emperor Franz Joseph, that Schweik, abruptly caught up in the turmoil of World War I, began his absurd wanderings. Schweik’s ghost still hovers about the pub, and the Emperor’s portrait is still there, flies and all…

Bowling Party
Bowling PartyWhat is your personal best in bowling? About a hundred? More than two hundred? Well, no matter, because today’s outing to a Prague Bowling Alley is sure to be an experience that beats all! We are off to the city’s prime bowling club with first-rate lanes and top-notch equipment. After a busy day on the tourist roundabout, this is a wonderful way to unwind, quaff a pint of famous Czech beer and enjoy the company of friends

Prague — Kutna HoraDay 4

Breakfast at the hotel
Excursion to the medieval city Kutna Hora

Nearly every city in the Czech Republic brews its own beer. We make our way east to the graceful city of Kutna Hora to sample their famous brew. The city itself, with its splendid medieval architecture and rich history, adds to our pleasure.


Kutna HoraThere are cities that retain their glory throughout the ages: such is the medieval town of Kutna Hora, due east of Prague. As legend has it, one day in the 13th century a monk from Sedlec monastery was out collecting firewood in the forest, when he stumbled upon some silver nuggets. Laying down his robe as a marker, he hurried home to tell his fellow monks about his fortuitous discovery. The ensuing “silver fever” transformed the city of Kutna Hora into the silver capital of the Middle Ages. During our tour, we’ll go into the depths of an ancient silver mine, and visit the courtyard where Italian silversmiths minted the famous “Prague penny”. We’ll travel down the road a bit to the Sedlec Ossuary for a taste of the truly grotesque. Lovers of the macabre will gape in appreciation at the chapel’s interior: the altar and all its appointments, including a massive chandelier, have been fashioned from over 40 thousand human bones, skulls and all. In addition, we will visit one of Europe’s most beautiful and awe-inspiring Gothic cathedrals, dedicated to Saint Barbara, the patroness of miners.

Lunch in the restaurant "U Krupky" — the best local beer.
