Needless to say, this trip was destined to be great.. If my first campaign to the Pilsner brewery was a success.. this would be as well. I managed to get into the city via train in the early afternoon-- unfortunately the brewery was already closed (FYI the brewery doesnt reapond well to threats! ). I ended up scouring the town for awhile trying to find a cheap or should i say 'economical' lodging. I ended up finding a rather reasonable PENSION (like a bed and breakfeast) near the center square. I wandered again to figure out what there was to see... turnes out.. aside from the closed brewery .. not a whole lot! Again, the city was neat but wasnt anything that was worth a whole lot of time.
Saturday morning after a nice breakfeast I happened upon the BLACK TOWER.
The tour was kinda neat - it wasnt anything special.. somewhat similar to the Pilsner brewery tour.. but you didnt hear that from me. The tour guide had to give speeches in 3 different languages (english,german, and czeck). Again.. the climax.. if it so can be said.. was the beer tasting..
Upon finishing the tour of the great and magnificent Budweiser Budvar brewery
Turned out to be my favorite city in czeck.. maybe one of my favorites small cities in all my travels!
