Once all settled in, the group left the hotel on foot and used the metro to go to Pohořelec, where they had free time to get some lunch before meeting their guide for an afternoon walking tour of the city where they saw all the famous landmarks of the city including St. Vitus Cathedral, the Lesser Town Square with St. Nicholas church, Charles Bridge and the Old Town Square. On returning to their hotel the group settled in for the night with their evening meal and the remainder of the evening at leisure.

Day 2:

Day two started with breakfast and meeting the coach for a visit to the Skoda Car plant in Mlada Boleslaw for guided visits around the museum and the car factory. Firstly the group began with a tour around the Skoda Museum; the tour started with a film and exhibition on the history and development of car production and then there was a chance for the group to see a display of cars from various ages. The group then moved onto the Skoda Factory Tour, where the group got to see the entire production process and visit both the engine and car assembly areas. After the tour had ended the group made good use of the café area and ate lunch before departing for Prague and the CERGE Institute. The group started with a welcome speech learning the history of the building and CERGE before an expert held an hour discussion on the European Union. Following this the group then made their way to the Cechuv Bridge for their Evening Buffet Dinner Cruise. The 2 hour cruise took the group through a lock on the Vltava River and down towards the beautifully illuminated Charles Bridge and Castle District while they ate their evening meal from the delicious buffet. Once on dry land again the group returned to the hotel and spent the remainder of the evening at leisure.

Day 3:

The group departed bright and breezy after breakfast for the Rückl Crystal factory in Nizbor. The factory dates back to 1903 and the guided tour took the group through the glassworks, the glass-manufacturing process, the furnace department, the quality control department, the glass cutting department and the painter’s studio. After a quick stop in the shop for a souvenir or two, the group departed for Plzan for a guided tour of the Pilsner Museum and Brewery. On arrival the group had some free time to grab a bite of lunch before they began their Pilsner Museum and Brewery tour. On the tour the group saw the Brewery Museum, the brewery plant and the cellars and they got to explore the malt house and the traditional art of barrel making. This visit provided the group with an in depth insight into the production of the beer and gave an excellent example of a successful Czech brand. After a busy day, the group returned to the hotel for their evening meal before heading out for a bit of healthy competition at the local bowling alley.

Day 4:

The day started with a visit to the Museum of Communism – a museum with the theme ‘Communism – the dream, the reality, and the nightmare’. The group got to experience the Immersive factories, a historical schoolroom, an interrogation room, and video clips in the Television Time Machine. On leaving the museum, the group made their way back to the hotel with time for lunch before checking out of the hotel and loading their luggage onto the coach. The next visit of the day was the Slavia Football Stadium for a guided tour of this modern stadium that gave an insight into the football club and how it is run along with seeing the pitch, dugout areas, Directors’ boxes and seating areas. After the tour the group had free time where they made the most of the Modern Eden Shopping Centre opposite the stadium for last minute shopping and getting a bite to eat before transferring to the airport for their flight home.
