The city of Plzen is dominated by the St. Bartholomew Cathedral, which has the highest church tower in the Czech Republic. From the tower, there is a beautiful view of the historic city centre and the wooded hills of the Plzen Basin. A strong Jewish community formed in Plzen in 1893 around the Great Synagogue, which is the third largest in the world. Plzen is well known for the beer with a unique colour and taste – Pilsner Urquell.
