Plzen byla založena roku 1295 králem Václavem II na soutoku 4 rek. Toto místo bylo velmi hospodársky i strategicky výhodné. Toky rek sledovaly významné obchodní cesty. Ze západu pres Primdu a Tachov šla cesta norimberská, ríšská. Z jihozápadu pres Domažlice a Horšovský Týn cesta rezenská. V Plzni se pak obe cesty sbíhaly. Soutok rek dále tvoril prirozenou obranu, kterou ješte zesílily hradby a príkopy. Díky tomu platila Plzen až do tricetileté války za nedobytné mesto. Založení Plzne byl tedy takrka geniální pocin!

Town of Plzen was established in the year 1295 by the king Vaclav II in junction of four rivers. This place was very strategical a economically position. Rivers followed meaningfull trade routes. The route from Norimberk (imperial route) came from west, over the town Tachov and castle of Primda. The route from Regensburg came from town of Domazlice and Horsovsky Tyn. And both routes were converged in Plzen. The junction of rivers did natural defence, that was amplified by walls and by ditches. So that, Plzen was uncaptured ad safe town until thirty years war. The Plzen establishtment was ingenious enterprise.

Úslava vytéká jako Žinkovka z Žinkovských rybníku. Jméno Úslava dostává u ústí Myslívského potoka u Nepomuka. Protéká vetšinou lucinatou krajinou v melkém údolí. Pod Plzní se vlévá u kostela sv. Jirí do Berounky. Povodí merí 760 km2. Délka toku je 65 km. Reka je splavná ze ŽInkov nebo od ústí Myslívského potoka na jare nebo deštích. Koncívá se zpravidla v Plzni. Potíže však zpusobují casto silne zarostlé brehy a mnoho jezu je bez propustí. Úslava protéká Žinkovy (mestecko se zámkem z r. 1679, zbytky hrádku Potenštejn), Bílovicemi, Nezvesticemi ( ústí Kornatického potoka), kolem zámku Kozel, Starým Plzencem (zrícenina hradu Radyne).
