History

 
13th ctyfirst cellars created.
19th ctylast cellars created.

Description

They were built as part of the town's defences in the fourteenth century. Later they were used to store beer. As the tour is all in Czech, ask for a leaflet in English.


Text by Tony Oldham (2002). With kind permission.

The cellars under the whole centre of the town Plzeň are up to three storeys deep and all together 17km long. This makes them one of the most extensive cellar systems in central Europe. The tour shows only a small part, about 750m of this system.
