For some reason they used light yellow color for walls like in post-soviet public toilets. It completely unfit for underground atmosphere. Interesting story even though they let completely not prepared persons to be "English speaking" guides.

You will spend one hour in the underground, some 9-12 metres under the city itself. If you are here in summer, like us, you will love the temperature. But the same is true when speaking of the 800 meters long journey and the nice guides here. You will know much more about the medieval history of the city, how the... More

The underground takes you through tunnels that have numerous displays of days of yore. You wear a hard hat (which helps with low ceilings) and are with a group of maybe twenty people. If near the front, you can hear the explanations of the displays, otherwise you don't see the items until you pass by them. The beautiful brick work... More

I recently took the Underground tour of Plzen and have to say, despite only exploring 800 metres of the labyrinth it added greatly to my overall experience of the city. Learning about the past lives, habits, work and culture of the people of Plzen really added to my enjoyment and understanding of the present day city. The guide was knowledgeable... More

This tour will take on a fun underground walk in the center town, about 800 meters with many turns and loops. Wear good non-slippery shoes as it is wet. Also, bring a light jacket as it gets cold too. While interesting, it is not a highlight or a must- in my opinion. If you have time to spare, it is... More

The tour takes place in narrow tunnels so watch out if you are claustrophobic / tall (you must wear a helmet anyway because of the low ceilings). You get to see various exhibits from different time periods which was pretty cool, imagining how life must have been then. However because the whole group can not fit in the tunnels at... More

Though renovated and reinforced between the 1960s and 80s, the underground still offers an occasional glimpse of the sandstone pathways and wells that coil under the city, culminating with the massive wooden waterwheel by the water tower.
