This year we will commemorate the 400th anniversary of the successful siege of Pilsen by an army under command of general Peter Ernst Mansfeld in 1618 when after more than two months Mansfeld‘s troops finally stormed the walls in Dřevěná street and entered the city.
Pilsen surrendered and had to pay an enormous ransom.
Anniversary of this important event of our history will be commemorated by its reenactment in the city’s historical centre.
Several performances will take place in „Proluka“ in Křížíkovy sady, visitors can watch conquest of Dřevěná street, capitulation in the town square and a battle on the bank of river Radbuza, that will take place on Sunday.
