    Try the local beers....

    A lovely head is a terrible thing to waste... ;)

    The Czech Republic is justifiably noted for its great beers. Though the Germans invented lager, it was the Czechs who invented the pilsner, the light colored lager that dominates the world today. There are many great beers to try here though many of them are vanishing as big brands like Pilsner Urquell and Budvar dominate the market place. There is nothing wrong with these beers. In fact, they are great. But if everyone drinks the same two beers, all the others will disappear and soon there will only be two choices. And less choice is rarely good. So, try some of the local brews on your travels. Many of them are in a league of their own. Svijany's are particularly good and represent perhaps what beer was like in the Czech Republic before the Velvet Revolution. Other notable brews in North Bohemia include: Primator (Nachod), Kronkonos (Trutnov), Kutnorske (Kutna Hora), and Rebel (Havlikuv Brod).

    Extraordinary custom

    Chandelier

    Very extraordinary (for my point of view) custom in Kutna Hora: humans who were buried long time ago raising from they graves and they bones bury under the church. In the picture you can see the element of one of the churches. All things of interior (candeliers, decorations, blazons etc.) are made from human bones.

    sleeping on the job?

    Bears are used in the moat surrounding the castle of Nachod, much as they are in Cesky Krumlov in South Bohemia.

    St. Barbara's Gothic Spires

    St. Barbara Cathedral boasts the most delicately exquisite Gothic spires in perhaps the whole Czech Republic.
