    Pay wave

    You're on the right path. Just continue straight.

    As you can imagine, Holešovice's new residents brought new ideas to the neighbourhood. Inspiration from other cities around the globe is always welcome - from Community Bike Sharing to Community Gardening.

    A gardening project was launched in 2012. Not only do the founders prefer to eat their own crops - they also understand their project as a political statement about the use of urban spaces.

    This is quite a shift away from how life in Prague was a few decades ago. When the building boom took off, everybody wanted to own a house outside of Prague. Every weekend, Czech residents used to escape to their cottages on the countryside. Recently, however, younger people have discovered the appeal of an urban lifestyle.

    Keep going. I'll meet you just before the end of the road.
