Earth : Europe : Central Europe : Czech Republic : Central Bohemia : Beroun
Beroun is a city in Central Bohemia, about 30 km southwest from Prague.
Beroun lies on an important railway line between Prague and Pilsen (and Cheb). Many fast trains going between these cities, including fast trains going to or from German cities of Regensburg, Nuremberg or Munchen, stop in Beroun. Beroun is also the terminus of the commuter line S6 between Prague and Beroun with frequent service and stops in many attractive places between, such as the Karlštejn castle. There are also local lines connecting Beroun with Rudná u Prahy and Rakovník. In Prague, Hlavní nádraží (Main) and Smíchovské nádraží stations are used for trains to or from Beroun (both fast and commuter trains).
Beroun lies on the D5 highway going from Prague to Pilsen and to Germany.
There are several marked track paths going through Beroun.
Beroun is a standard mid-size Czech town. You find here cinema, few museums (few :), sport clubs, swimming pool ... if you are a party animal, this won´t be your choice. But if you want to enjoy relax days in nature with the comfort of town services, you are at right place :)
You will find few places at the main square or around the river. If you want to see (and taste) something unique, don´t miss family brewery Berounsky medved (Beroun Bear ... what else would you expected :). The brewery can be found close to the main railway station (2 mins on foot), hidden in the areal of old sugar factory (seeing it from distance, you would hardly guess the coolest Beroun restaurant is hidden here). The brewery-restaurant is a huge place with more than 80 seats with very traditional (but not tacky) decoration. Own beer and wide selection of own beers makes this restaurant great place to stay!
