The Basics

Travelers wanting to learn about Czech history, beer culture, and the art of beer brewing will enjoy visiting the home of one of the Czech Republic’s most popular brands. Though not located inside the actual brewery, the Staropramen Visitor Center offers many opportunities to learn about beer making, including brief tours via audio guide. Many travelers visit independently to tour the visitor center and knock back a giant beer at the bar-restaurant, and some guided sightseeing tours of Prague make a stop here.

Visit Smichov’s MeetFactory

Formerly a grungy, industrial part of Prague, today the Smichov neighborhood is increasingly trendy, with some exciting artistic venues. The MeetFactory is a contemporary arts center established by Czech artist David Cerny (whose bronze baby sculptures you can see crawling up the side of Zizkov Tower, on the other side of the city) that hosts contemporary art exhibits and concerts.
