What your guests will love about your neighborhood

<p>The New Town of Pilsen was founded at the confluence of four rivers - Radbuza, Mze, Uhlava and Uslava - following a decree issued by the Czech king Wenceslas II. He did so in 1295. Since the very beginning, the town became a busy trade center located at the crossroads of two important trade routes. They were linking the Czech lands with German cities Nuremburg and Regensburg.</p><p>In the 14th century, Pilsen was the third largest town after Prague and Kutna Hora. It comprised 290 houses on an area of 20 ha. Its population was 3,000 inhabitants. In the 16th century, after several fires that damaged the inner center of the town, Italian architects and builders contributed significantly to the changing character of the city. The most renowned among them was Giovanni de Statia.</p><p>The Holy Roman Emperor, Czech king Rudolf II, resided in Pilsen twice between 1599-1600. It was in the time of the Estates revolt. He fell in love with the city. He even bought two houses neighbouring with the town hall and had them reconstructed according to his taste.</p><p>Later, in 1618, Pilsen was besieged and captured by Count Mansfeld's army. Many Baroque style buildings dating to the end of the 17th century were designed by Jakub Auguston. Sculptures were done by Kristian Widman. The historical heart of the City - almost identical with the original Gothic layout - was declared protected historic city reserve in 1989. </p><p>Pilsen experienced a tremendous growth in the first half of the 19th century. The City Brewery was founded in 1842 and the Skoda Works in 1859. </p><p>Today, with the population of 170,000 inhabitants, Pilsen prides itself on being the seat of the University of West Bohemia and a center of culture & trades for whole Western Bohemia region.</p><p><b> More information about Pilsen and Western Bohemia can be found posted on: </b></p><p><a href=``http://web.plzen.eu/en/home/index.html``><font face=``verdana,geneva`` size=``2`` color=``#cc99ff``><strong><em> <u> http://www.plzen.eu </u></em></strong></font></a> </p>
