We traveled to Burno and decided to check out UNESCO sites along our way back to Vienna, Austria. We really enjoyed this stop for a very good espresso and a few pictures. The city center is lined with colorful homes and shops.

We saw several Plague Column's throughout our trip. The one in Pilsen was very nice with lots of detail . My photo doesn't capture that, but some of the other reviewers have better photos. It is in a nice old square.
