The metropolis of western Bohemia offers lovers of art and good times countless opportunities for exciting experiences, including theatre, galleries and a wide variety of events. Because of this, Pilsen was selected as the European Capital of Culture 2015.

The classical theatre or musical performances of the J.K. Tyl Theater, the Alfa Theatre and the Pilsen Philharmonic complement the performances of newer groups and organizations. An endless source of entertainment and quality music programmes of various genres is provided by Pilsen‘s clubs. The best known include Zach's Pub, Buena Vista, and Jazz Rock Café. During its more than twenty year existence, the Divadlo pod lampou (Theatre below the Lamp) with its focus on presenting local and the international music acts, including both alternative and traditional projects, has become a legend on the music scene.
