Plzeň (Czech Republic). 'Plzeň is a city of hidden pleasures. Beyond a visit to the obvious – the original Pilsener brewery – take a stroll through the leafy historical centre, marvel at Europe’s second-biggest synagogue, climb the cathedral tower or, in summer, join the locals at the suburban lake and sunbathe the day away.' http://www.lonelyplanet.com/czech-republic/bohemia/plzen
