Tour description provided by Viator

Learn and discover the history and craft of Bohemian crystal glassware which they have been creating since the 13th century, on your half-day guided coach tour from Prague.

Located less than an hour from Prague is the Nizbor Bohemia Glass factory, founded in 1903 and situated within the cosy town of Nizbor on the River Berounka. Today Nizbor glassworks produce Czech crystal, originally known as Bohemian crystal. Bohemian Crystal is a decorative glass which can made into several forms such as vases, champagne glasses, plates, decanters and much more. It is also thought that Bohemian crystal is believed to bring peace and warmth to a home and that even by looking through the beautiful glass increases people's concentration.

Throughout this trip you will be able to see glass being blown and cut as well as learning about the entire crystal making process.

Glass is a typical Czech product and there will also be an opportunity to purchase products for favorable discounts at the factory.
