Pilsen on Mondays

Hello,

I've noticed that a lot of places in the Czech Republic are closed on Mondays. I assume some attractions will be closed in Pilsen as well. Is it advisable to go to Pilsen on a Monday, or is the Tuesday a better option?

Thanks,

Twan

Mainly general stuff: museums, churches. Also if there's some atmosphere at that time (shops and bars open, people on the streets, etc.). I can imagine that some towns can be rather dead on specific days in the week (my hometown on Sunday and Monday, for instance).

Pilsen has a large synagogue..that will be open on Monday...and most people go there for the brewery (Pilsen brewery)...if you are interested check their website.

Shops and bars/restaurants are normally open on Mondays.

Outside the main square and the brewery there isn't a huge amount to Plzeň, but it is a regular working city and things will be open.

Many cities are discovering their 'undergrounds', Plzeň no exception http://www.plzenskepodzemi.cz/en/

definitely agree with viewing the synagogue... 60kc to tour a building which endured and witnessed a lot.

RE: Mondays...many outlying castles and galleries are closed since they are open the other days (Prague places tend to be open)
