During the 15th century the Hussiets and their Catholic opponents have fought out 3 fierce fights. Nowadays the victory over the Catholics is celebrated once every 5 years during the Hussiets festival in Tachov. Also the Hussiets monument is a reminder of this period.

In 1945 all German speakers were expelled from Tachov and the rest of the Czech Republic. In the vicinity of Tachov uranium was found and mining was started. The city then became populated by adventurers from several countries like Romania and Ukraine. This is why Tachov has become a melting pot of different cultures.
