Return of gas lamps

Gas lamps once were in Prague streets. And now lamps are returning. Light in old style is different from modern electric lamps and with old design of standards it gives more romance to Prague. Especially by night.

First gas lamps after 20 years appeared again in 2002. Now you can find them in Michalska, Vejvodova, Melantrichova and Uhelny trh streets. Big lamp-post will be functional in some days at Hradcanske square. It has to be repaired and restored. This one and another two-at Loretan street and Drazickeho square- look more like sculptural group than lamp-standard.

A light from gas lamps was possible after the restoration of gas pipelines at Celetna street and it is planned that whole King road will be under light of gas.
