I haven't known that Plzen has an ancient underground tunnel. The roots are in the mediaeval times, it's definitely worth to see these tunnels. Not for claustrophobics!

I have seen meny nice cellars in this country, but most of the undergrund does not at all have this beuti. It all look more or less the same, and with some displays. It has of course a interesting history, so in that Way it is speciel, but I had expected more, so dont have to High expectations.

Interesting place however on the photos it looked more impresive. You can enter only with a guide, for about 50 minutes and walk through corridors. There are some displays inside showing things and habits from medieval times.

This tour should not be missed when visiting Pilsen. It's network of tunnels under the city where in olden times commerce could be conducted between businesses in secrecy.

Worthwhile visit beneath the old streets of the town centre, but do wear the safety hat as the ceilings are very low in places. The underground waterwheel is a fantastic sight. 6 tonnes and built in-situ.

Went on English tour. The underground is interesting but there is not a huge amount to see.

The adjoining pub is very good and, although we did not eat, the food we saw looked... More

Make sure you take a jacket. It's cold underground. We took the tour in English. The tour was informative and interesting, as well as amusing at times. Overall, it was a good experience followed by a beer in the nearby pub afterwards, using the voucher for a free beer.

This is very worthy to go as it shows part of the history of the city. Advice: Take a jacket with you as it is cold.

The attraction is listed as being open at 10am. We waited around an hour on a Sunday morning (since the town hall area is dead on Sundays). When we got there, they said we could not enter until 11am. We'll pass.
