A controversial sewerage plant in Prague

Urbanism specialists in Prague protest: the municipal authorities plan to build a controversial new sewerage plant at the Cisarsky Island near the Troja Chateau. A unique landscape composition of the area will be adversely affected.

The Troja Chateau was built in the 17th century intentionally with a view on the Prague Castle. Several other buildings were built around to complete the composition by the author of Versailles Gardens in Paris.

The high buildings of the sewerage plant will allegedly destroy this. However, the vice-mayor of Prague defends the plant, saying that it will be much lower than the opponents say and that it will be surrounded by trees.

Nevertheless, the opponents have already lodged a complaint to the European Commission.
