Karlin is opening to Prague centre

Prague district Karlin has plan how to open itself to the rest of the city. Karlin in located between Vltava river on the north, only one main road leading to east, Vitkov hill on the south and Negrelli’s train viaduct on the west. The viaduct has only six passage arches to New Town so the rest of arches makes something like a wall.

Most arches are somehow blocked. In 19th century there were craftsman workshops, but now it mostly contains garages or warehouses. It is expected that the owner of the bridge could repudiate an agreement in twelve months and the walk under the whole viaduct could be possible after a year.

Negrelli’s viaduct is historically first train build in Prague. It was build in 1850 and it was longest bridge of Europe until the year 1910. Now the bridge is second oldest bridge in Prague.
