The Plzeň Regions extends  over the southwest part of the Czech Republic. A great part of the region is covered  by the mountain ranges Šumava and Český les, places famous for their picturesque countryside and developed tourist industry. The industrial production is based mainly in the regional capital of Plzeň. The most famous local produce would undoubtedly be the world famous Prazdroj beer. There are  a huge numberof cultural and historical landmarks in the Plzeň Region and , unsuprisingly, it is a favourite destination of many tourists. Chodsko, part of the region very close to  the Czech-German border, is one of the most attractive places. It is formed by 12 small villages around Domažlice. Interestingly, many local customs as well as a distinguished dialect have been preserved up to the present day. Tthe Chodsko festival takes place in Domazlice every year. Among the many must-sees in the Plzeň Region are Rabi castle (the largest castle ruins in the Czech Republic), castles Kašperk and Velhartice, and catacombs in Klatovy.
