    Former Multi-Story Parking Garage

    Pay wave

    Stop here, and look at the big grey six story building on the corner on your right. It has a big steel door and large rectangular windows.


    This is a former parking garage. Could you imagine? It was put into operation in 1928, during the First Czechoslovak Republic. It was the first multi-story garage in Prague, and was built with reinforced concrete. It offered space for 120 cars, with two stories underground and six above ground, as well as the roof. The garage was equipped with elevators for cars, its own petrol station, steam heating, a wastewater cleaner and fire protection.

    It was converted into an office building between 1997 and 1998.

    When you're ready to move on, continue walking down the road in the same direction as before. Stay on the right sidewalk this time.
