Prague's Quay

Dvořákovo nábřeží, Rašínovo nábřeží ...

For many centuries, the city had an ambivalent relationship with the river. The River Vltava was a key transport artery and at the same time, also an obstacle; a source of drinking water as well as a wastewater sewer; a picturesque landscape element as well as a threat in the days of devastating floods. The banks of the Vltava were peripheral. It was home to the network of mills, noisy and dirty professions, warehouses and slums. A fundamental change occurred in the second half of the 19th century. The city turned to face the river. Dozens of luxury apartment buildings and representative public administration buildings were built on the stone quays with planted alleyways. The riverside became a popular place for walks and a real source of pride for the city. The same applies today. The silt deposits are part of the Prague Historical Reserve and are widely used for shipping as well as for leisure activities, cultural, gastronomic, sporting and other events. Prague’s riverbanks and silt deposits form one of the most attractive parts of the city in terms of panorama and connections to the city centre.
