Křižíkovy sady

Křižík’s orchads are a part of the Pilsen Park zone which is located near Republic Square. It connects Šafařík’s orchads with Mlýnska Strouha and there are Mastné krámy, where there is now located the West Bohemian Gallery in Pilsen. The park is named after a significant Czech technician and the inventor of the arc lamp František Křižík. He came from Plánice, a town in the Pilsen region. He is commemorated in the orchards by his bust and a great monument. Křižík‘s orchards, along with Šafařík’s orchards, are the scene of many cultural events. The most important is the Living Street festival. A very popular place is Proluka, where theater performances, projections of summer cinemas, concerts and exhibitions take place.
