The path winding through the Southern Suburb tells the story of a new city area which was formed in the first half of the 20th century around Klatovská třída / Klatovská Avenue (south of the Pilsen–Cheb rail line). The starting point of this route is the space in front of the most significant Pilsen Loos-type-realisation – a maisonette flat for the Semler family built into their own apartment house. Heinrich Kulka, one of Adolf Loos’ collaborators, applied Adolf Loos’ concept of the so-called raumplan here. The path will then intersect several important areas concentrating on a great number of modern public buildings as well as sets of quality, mostly Functionalist apartment houses: náměstí Míru (Peace Square), the Municipal Hospital premises, the so-called Belánka, and Klatovská Avenue itself.
