Revoluční Street to become a new boulevard with cobbled surface, new trees, benches, and wider pavements


5/5/2021

Prague’s Revoluční Street is to be completely redesigned. Prague City Council has amended its previous resolution and made changes in some of the parameters and processes associated with the street’s redesign. The new version envisages the driving speed to be lowered to 30 km/h and the surface to be cobbled. This is expected to improve water absorption to provide natural irrigation to a new line of trees. Pavements will be wider to create more room for pedestrians, trees and benches.

Revoluční Street together with Národní and Na Příkopě streets form so-called Ramparts Corso along the former Old Town walls, for which a design study was drawn up in 2020. The new study updates a 2018 design for Revoluční Street which was produced by Aoc Architects in collaboration with the Prague Institute of Planning and Development (IPR).
