České Budějovice (often referred by its German name, Budweis) is a city in the Czech Republic. It is the largest city in the South Bohemian Region and is the political and commercial capital of the region. The old town preserves interesting architecture from the gothic, renaissance, baroque and 19th century periods.
Budějovice has long been well known for its beer. The “Budweiser” became, along with Pilsner (named after another Czech city, Pilsen), one of the best-known lagers. Brewing remains a major industry.
The largest brewery, founded in 1895, is Pivovar Budějovický Budvar (Budweiser Budvar Brewery) which has legal rights to market its beer under the “Budweiser” brand name in much of Europe. The same product is also sold elsewhere under the names “Budvar” and “Czechvar” due to legal disagreements with Anheuser-Busch over the Budweiser brand.
