Highlights

Discover the town of Žatec, listed on the UNESCO list in 2023, before it becomes as touristy as Prague.

What to expect?

Get off the touristy Prague and get to know the real Czech Republic. 

Enjoy historic UNESCO town Žatec with its hop-fields surroundin.

You get to experience an easy going trip in an off-road car with a local guide, 


The town Žatec is a globally unique hop center with a complex of hop warehouses and drying facilities, where hops were processed for export literally all over the world.

The town of Žatec served as a backdrop for more than a hundred films and television commercials.

To name a few, "Bag of Marbles," "Edith Piaf," "Rabbit Jojo," and especially "Yentl," the directorial debut of Barbra Streisand, whose grandmother was from Žatec.

We will take you to several locations that appeared in the movie. And even in movies that you definitely know.
