How our world is structured: The Centre for Building Heritage in Plasy and the Railroad Depot of the National Technical Museum in Chomutov

Plasy can rightfully be called the ‘baroque pearl’ of Western Bohemia. In the 17th and 18th centuries, the Cistercian monks who ruled this land – now part of present-day Czechia – invited the best architects of their time to build a monastery, plenty of chapels, administrative buildings, manors and many other structures. The National Technical Museum’s Centre for Building Heritage in Plasy is located in a former brewery of the monastery, built by the congenial architect Jan Blažej Santini Eichel. Visitors to the Centre can gain a deeper understanding of the building’s history, learn traditional skills and get acquainted with the building’s heritage as such in a playful and interactive way.

Trying out the interactive exhibition will be followed by lunch in a reopened monastic brewery with the option to try local beer specialties.

After lunch, a bus will take you to the opened depository of trains in Chomutov, where some of the National Technical Museum’s unique historical pieces – including a 1906 train made especially for A. Rothschild – can be seen.
