Pilsen Urquell Brewery

Beer has been brewing in Pilsen since its foundation. The brewery Plzeňský Prazdroj was found in 1842. In the Municipal Brewery in Pilsen, the first batch of the lower fermented lager was brewed, which subsequently conquered the whole world under the name of Pilsner Urquell. Plzeňský Prazdroj is a major producer and exporter of Czech beer, exporting beer to more than 50 countries worldwide.
At the beginning of October 2008, two buildings of the brewery area were placed on the list of cultural monuments in the Czech Republic - the Jubilee Gate and the Water Tower.
