A look at history
Until 1922, Radlice was a small village, just a clump of relatively wealthy farming estates with a corresponding rural character. In 1945, the municipality suffered the impact of aerial bombs intended for the nearby factories, and struggled to recover after the war. Ten years later, a sports compound, metro station and the new route of Radlická Street were constructed here. Today, it is striving to recultivate its former industrial zones.
Where is Radlice located?
Radlice is located on the left bank of the Vltava River and is part of the Prague 5 district. It neighbours on other luxurious neighbourhoods such as Jinonice, Košíře, Hlubočepy and Smíchov.
Dívčí Hrady aka Děvín
You can find the beauty of nature in the area on the attractive ridges of Dívčí Hrady and Prokopské údolí. The preserved landscape invites recreational activities. Dívčí Hrady refers in particular to the northern part of the hill, while the villa district to the south borders on the luxurious natural preservation site of Ctirad, sometimes merely referred to as Děvín. The southern part of the hill with Děvín peak belongs to the Prokopské and Dalejské údolí natural park and the southern slope to the Prokopské údolí natural reserve.
Living in Radlice has a major advantage
Not only has the locality so far avoided excessive regulation and an influx of developers, but it is also relatively close to the centre of Prague, which can be reached quickly and easily. Apartments in Radlice are located near the metro, ring road and Smíchovské nádraží train station. Perfect traffic accessibility is further ensured by Radlická Street, which connects to the southern rink road via Dobříšská Street and Barrandov Bridge.
There are also plenty of shops and restaurants in the area, and sports like tennis or gold are within arm’s reach, with tennis and golf courts just 10 a minutes’ drive away.
