Sport and tourism
Sport, meaningful leisure time, time together with friends and individual recreation are an inseparable part of modern life. Pilsen offers a huge range of sports opportunities.
In addition to football and hockey, traditional sports include shooting, tennis, gymnastics and handball. There are approximately 160 types of sports facilities with over 600 sports surfaces from standard courts, gymnasiums, tennis courts to swimming pools. Quality facilities are conveniently located for professional athletes and those interested in recreational sports.
Active sports facilities are mainly in popular sports parks. Sports lovers have free access to skate parks, in-line paths, surfaces for beach sports, climbing tower and rope centres. Lochotín Ice Park also provides an artificial surface for ice-skating.
Pilsen‘s geographical location offers an unusual and not yet fully utilized potential for outdoor recreation: for example, the banks of Pilsen’s rivers are ideal not only for walking, but also for cycling.
