Pilsen region landmarks
Karlskrone royal castle was built around year 1360 under the reign of Charles IV. Its German name did not work and people started calling it according to the hill where the castle stands – Radyně. The castle often changed its owner and in the half of the 16th century, it was completely deserted. It might be owing to legends where numerous monsters are mentioned.
Probably the most famous Czech brewery is Pilsner Urquell. And the reason is especially the long tradition of brewing beer in Pilsen. The so-called brewing right was awarded to Pilsen citizens already by Czech and Polish king Wenceslas II in 1295. Beer used to be brewed here in numerous smaller and bigger plants for centuries but its quality, however, was very variable. Therefore the city decided to invest to the construction of municipal brewery. The first dose of beer of the so-called Bavarian type was presented to the society in October 1842. The registered trademark - Pilsner Urquell – was granted to Pilsner beer in 1989.
Hans and Gretel boasted to their friends that they had gone for a walk with their parents around Loučim. Their daddy told them that their great-great-grandfather worked at Dobříkov railway viaduct. He got this job in November of 1886 when the construction of an important track started. Today it has number 185 and it leads from Domažlice through Klatovy to Horažovice. That is where it connects to the track Pilsen – České Budějovice. The children were all silent when they were walking with their parents on the field path and they saw how tall and monumental it is.
