Underground of Český Brod

The entrance to the Gothic cellars can be found in building No. 1 on Arnošt from Pardubice Square. It is the original town hall built in the 14th century, which has always been one of the most important buildings of the city. The creation of the underground itself is not dated, it was probably set up with a defense and storage purpose, when the Gothic cellars were connected by underground corridors. Even though the ancient centre of the city is richly connected with corridors and interesting cellars, for public is currently uncovered and accessible only their parts. For all this, we can thank the enthusiasts of the Association for the Protection of Cultural and Historical Monuments of Českobrodsko (and the financial support of the town of Český Brod and the Ministry of Culture of the Czech Republic), who, at least in the period 1991-1996, deserved to have partial access to the underground. The entrance hall of the underground route, which serves for small wedding ceremonies or similar cultural and accompanying events, is remarkably renovated. In 1996 it was included in the list of cultural monuments of the Czech Republic. If you decide to visit the Českobrodské underground with a length of about 300 m, you can find a guide for a half hour tour in our information centre. The maximum capacity per tour is 10 people. We recommend booking in advance at the following telephone numbers: 321 612 218, 321 612 219.
