The tour was quite nice. Intresting to see the tunnels. Just be prepared that it is cold and low ceilings. Can't say anything about the guide since we used an audioguide. The people who sold the tickets were not helpful at all and their english was not the best

The ancient underground vaults, cellars and passageways are quite fascinating. They are impressive for their antiquity and functionality. Clearly they have evolved and borne some reconstruction and there is a fair amount of concrete and brickwork to keep visitors safe. Fortunately there are also protective helmets as some of the ceilings are rather low. The modern art by local children... More

This is such a great underground dating to the 14th century. What took away from it were the garishly painted walls (painted over the original carved stone), niches filled with garish "art" - everything from suspended lightbulbs with glued on butterfly wings to large paintings by 1st to 3rd graders. A figure with an aluminum head watching TV. Why these... More

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
