Ok, show me those Czech pyramids
The ranking is about today and the weight of "heritage" is a mere 1.1% (go to the methodology section of the ranking)

Moreover, Egyptians today have absolutely nothing to do with the peoples that build the pyramids.

Having said that, todays impact in the world of the fantastic Czech Pilzner vastly surpasses any possible impact of a few thousand tonnes of stones moved by dying slaves for no good reason.

That would be the piles of German waste that gets exported to us. Heritage in its own, Teutonic way.

Like..really Beer!

I'd say, people aren't bad looking. But they don't think of CZ being the best place. It is home. Ou quoi.

I'm a homebrewer. The respect, gratitude and sheer kudos to the Czechs for coming up with the crisp, bright, refreshing and hoppy Pilsner in a world of bad ales and mediocre sours could never be fully appreciated by non-beer drinkers. It's absolutely not meant to say this is their only contribution to this world, by no means. But in MY small world, I'm a simple man, this ranks above everyone else, save the Belgians and at par with the Bavarians.

I get it. Though people brew their own, even there, where beer is still cheaper than bottled water. My family brews, friends...organize weird beer tasting insane bike rides I guess that makes them be happy there.
