  • Spend time on tour guide in Russian. The Germans issued audio guides. Told the story, showed the film while watching was a tasting of 3 types of drinks. Becherovka lemon (Nice, feminine, not strong), classical Becherovka, black Becherovka (limited edition, the most expensive of all). After a tour of the shop. The tickets were given a speeding ticket for a discount on Becherovka 1 liter, but did not have to because the liter bottle is very large. Bought by 0.5.

  • Nice place in the Center. The Museum is not very large, but modern, bright and interesting. In the basement be exhibits, on which we can conclude the process of the production of the drink, all very graphically using wax. At the end of the tours, passes traditional tasting is offered at trial three types of medicinal liquor. There is also a great specialty store where you can buy exclusive varieties of Becherovka.  Recommend to visit, interesting time many didn't take, you can gain valuable souvenirs.

  • Cute, aromatic, tasting provided, a fun and easy to follow documentary to watch at the end. Really small though. Definitely worth a visit.
  • Was very nice but unfortunately a bit short. The leadership itself has lasted only 15 minutes. You could see some things in the connection independently. Then was the tasting of 3 products, during a short film. It is interesting in any case and at a price of 120 crowns (about 5 euros), you can not complain.
