    A unique complex of underground cellars and corridors, one of the greatest attractions of Rzeszow – Underground Tourist Route “Rzeszow cellars”. 369 meters of building connections are held under the houses of the Market Square. They originate from about the 14th century. Shops, warehouses, production facilities, and even shelters during wars and cataclysms were there. But today, “Rzeszow cellars” look different and we create their history over again.
