Some may not know that for a while between the years 1902 and 1921, Vysočany was an independent town. Now, this cadastral area belongs to the Prague 9 city section, with only a small part belonging to the Prague 3 district. Have you had a chance to discover its beauty?

This city section has a remarkable history which dates back to the 13th Century, when the first written mention of Vysočany appears. Since then, much water has flowed, many people have been born, and human society experience so much. Today, we can see Vysočany as a luxurious looking and fully flourishing Prague district.

Vysočany - z historie

What belongs to Vysočany

Everybody knows their city like their own shoes. But does this apply to those who live in a thriving metropolis? As a reminder, Vysočany includes the residential area around Sokolovská Street, the pilgrimage route between Prosek and Kbely, the industrial and administrative zone around K Žižkovu and Pod Šancemi streets. There are echoes of the industry of past (from several ČKD factories), but since the 1990s development has taken a different direction.

Living in Vysočany is a win

The Rokytka creek flows through Vysočany, so there is no lack of greenery. Middle-aged and young generations are welcomed by luxurious residential projects, which are being built on the site of former factories, and are called Nové Vysočany (although the “old-timers” don’t really like it; after all, they already have a Nové Vysočany). In short, everything is moving and changing.

The heart of Vysočany

It has always been the case that the square centralised life in the village, and nowadays perhaps even in the city. The town hall from the middle of the last century, a beautiful and luxurious building, stands near Náměstí OSN (UN Square). Other historical buildings worth mentioning are the railway station, active since 1872 and considerably modernised. Another luxurious looking building is the Dlabač Villa designed by the Stuchlíks in Prague baroque style.

Even this Prague location has plenty to offer, with fully developed infrastructure, traffic accessibility, luxurious housing and peaceful living.
