Lonely Planet review for náměstí Republiky
Plzeň's main square, náměstí Republiky, is the hub of the city's lively and attractive old town. It is particularly notable for the gigantic Gothic St Bartholomew church which towers over the surrounding façades from the centre of the square. The southern half of the square becomes a lively craft market eight times a year, mainly around public holidays. Check at the helpful City Information Centre for exact dates.
