Pilsen is a city with an unusually large number of rural conservation areas and zones. As the city grew, it gradually engulfed the small villages around its perimeter. Typically, they maintained their historical core – most commonly with a chapel and farmhouse-style folk architecture containing elaborate decorations, shields and entrance gates. In Pilsen, there are three rural reserves (Božkov, Koterov, Černice) and seven rural monument zones.
