Don't let the simple structures make you think that this place is not a great place to visit. The factory showroom has excellent prices on crystal you won't get in retail outlets. We took a tour of the factory and were amazed at the skill...More

TIP: worth the drive to just buy crystal up there, the tour is OK, but items are very well priced and high quality. We enjoyed the tour in English, it gave as an insight of local town and people.

Approx 40km from Praha center. Worth a visit (40mn) and à tour in the factory boutique. No visit after 3 pm. No need to take a group tour, very cheap vite a private car and a driver.

Lovely drive in the country. Friendly English speaking guide taking you thru the process of making glass and crystal. Good tour for those who are unfamiliar how glass/crystal are made.

The tour takes you up close to the whole process of glassmaking. The contrast between the look of the factory and the products it produces fascinated me. Also a great way to experice something other than the big city life of Prague.
