Right before Pilsen became the European Capital of Culture in 2015, buses and trolleybuses used this former transport company depot as a parking house. Nevertheless, today you will find a unique cultural compound here, which hosts exhibitions, conferences as well as fascinating events and festivals.

Where buses once stood, today concerts, exhibitions and gastronomy festivals are held in the grounds of DEPO2015. Even the courtyard area is alive with activity during the summer months. One of the traditional events held here, which is a favourite among visitors, is the DEPO Street Food Market, where you can try out delicacies from a wide array of food stands and trucks. Pilsen’s Design Week, as well as the thematic markets and celebrations, are also beloved by locals and guests alike. These events are held every month at the DEPO Marketplace, where you can also find a number of permanent boutiques dedicated to fashion, designer goods and local products.
Permanent exposition dedicated to the depot’s history
The permanent exposition ‘DEPOTUTOJE’ (The Depot Is Here) tells the story of the depot from its days as an entrepreneurial dream of a sugar factory to the technological innovations of František Křižík, and ends with becoming 2015’s European Capital of Culture. The exposition displays miniatures of the historic buses and trolleybuses that once criss-crossed through Pilsen’s streets as well as a one-of-a-kind model of the Křižík – Brožík tram and photos from that time period. There are also a number of curiosities from the 2015 celebrations on display here, including the shoes worn by tightrope walker David Dimitri, when he walked along a rope that stretched over Pilsen’s Republic Square.
