The Town Cellars were constructed in a sand-stone hillock under the command of Kryštof of Karlovice, the feudal manor holder, between 1555 – 1595. Majority of the subterranean network survived until the present time.
There are five similar complex cellar networks in the Czech Republic, the Jirkov cellars being the oldest   of them. They are precious from the geological as well as historical point of view.
