Underground Tourist Route runs under the Rzeszow market square. The entrance to the interior is the town hall, more specifically from the Slowackiego street (Rynek 26).

During a guided tour you can learn about underground passages, which were used for centuries as merchants' warehouses, and in moments of danger were also an ideal refuge for the inhabitants. Some of them have their own names - so there is a Lubomirskis' corridor, Rzeszowskich's basement or the Path of Merchants.

Currently, you can only see the remains of old walls, all the rest of the corridors has been reconstructed in modern times. The route is not only about corridors, but also about an interesting story about the history of the city and the region, as well as special exhibitions that present the coats of arms, weapons, utensils or armor.

At the entrance there is an information desk and a café.
