Beroun

Beroun is a regional town with a population of approximately 25,000. The town is located at the confluence of the Berounka and Litavka rivers, at the western end of the Cesky kras wildlife preserve, approximately 18 kilometers from Prague's south-western extremity.

Beroun was probably founded in the second half of the 13th century by German colonists, on the road between Prague and Bavaria. In 1295, Vaclav II. established a royal town on the basis of this distinctive settlement. The town was laid out as an irregularly shaped rectangle surrounding a rectangular square, and at the beginning of the 14th century, it was fortified. The historical center of the royal town of Beroun carries vestiges of its 700 year plus long history. Not only are its thirteen historical landmarks that are registered by the state protected and provided with special architectural care, the entire historical center has been named an urban historical landmark

Beroun is a great target for a Tailor-made Tour.
