The price is really good. The climb is a little hard but it is worth it! The view is 360º and beautiful

Scale to the Tower, if you must. 60 steps to contend with. Be mindful of narrow wooden steps towards the end.Go slow. We were afforded a beautiful view of the the whole city of Pilzen, 53 meters above.

The cathedral is 58 meters long and 30 meters wide. Arches reach a height of 25 meters. The church tower is 103 meters high and is the tallest church... More

I happened to drive by Pilsen! I found the meter parking around the sqare and enjoyed the festive market and city organized entertainment like feeding goat and pony! Ate food and drank beer at the stand and went up to the cathedral observatory. It was challenging to walk up but must go place to see all of Pilsen!

Plzen is quite cosmopolitan but don't go on a Sunday because most of the shops in the CBD are closed. They still have the markets and large enclosed shopping centres open as well as the cathedral of course. But it is better with everything open.

When visiting Plzeň it is a wonderful vista point from the highest church spire in the Czech republice (Bohemia). We had a fantastic view to the city. Enjoy it with us.

This church is located in the centre of Pilsen and I might be getting a bit jaded and over churches but it seems pretty much like most other old churches in town centres. It has some pretty cool statues on it. I didn't go inside so I can't comment on the interior. It makes for an ok photo and they... More

You cannot miss the Cathedral in Pilsen, as it is located in the very heart of the town. And for sure do not miss the opportunity to climb up the tower, as the view is just amazing.
