The Skoda plant, owned by Volkswagen, is now one of the most modern car factories in the world. Our sightseeing tour explores the cutting edge processes employed and delves into the history of the famous car maker.
This sightseeing tour is part by air-conditioned coach, part on foot.
After picking you up from your Prague hotel, we drive for around 45 minutes to reach the town of Mlada Boleslav, home of Skoda Cars.
Skoda Car Company was founded in 1895, and has produced a huge range of classic automobiles over the years. Indeed, up until the second world war Skoda was a pioneer in many fields, building some of the finest cars anywhere in the world.
We begin our visit therefore at the Skoda Museum, with a film on the history and development of Skoda car production.
Next, we tour the historic cars on display, some dating from the origins of the factory and all painstakingly restored to their former glory.
We then transfer to the modern car plant. Under Volkswagen's ownership, Skoda has received hundreds of millions of Euros investment and visitors will be impressed by this ultra clean and highly efficient plant.
Skoda is one of only a few car makers to allow visitors into their factory, offering a rare opportunity to follow the entire production process. We tour both the engine and car assembly areas.
