Republic square

Local name: Náměstí Republiky

The market in Pilsen was marked out during the medieval location of the city. It is a rectangular square measuring 139x193 meters. In its central part stands the Gothic cathedral of St. Bartholomew. The market is surrounded by Renaissance, Baroque and Classicist tenement houses.

The market square, now called Republic Square, is the main square of Pilsen. There are many restaurants, shops and bars. The market hosts outdoor events and seasonal fairs, including the most famous Christmas market.

The square was marked out in the Middle Ages and was then one of the largest in Europe. In addition to the cathedral of Saint Bartholomew, its most important buildings are the Renaissance town hall and the Imperial House. In front of the church stands a Baroque Plague Column with a statue of Our Lady of Pilsen. In the three corners of the market square there are modern fountains whose form is a contemporary, geometric interpretation of the city's symbols: camel, greyhound and angel.
