Nase Praha (2)

Nase Praha by Miroslav Khol and Bohumil Riha.  Hardcover book published by Panorama Praha 1982.  Text is in Czech with translations (including English) in the back of the book.


The main multi-storeyed building of the new Czechoslovak Television Centre in Prague-Pankrac at Kavci Hory (Jackdaw Hills).

The Klement Gottwald Bridge, built between 1966 and 1972 of prestressed cement, spanning the Nusle Valley from the Nusle district proper and Pankrac district to the New Town Church of St. Charlemagne, not only serves vehicular traffic with its north-south motorway, but also the trains of Prague’s Metro.

The modern housing estate, which sprang up on the borderline between Kacterov and Krc districts along Budejovicka triad (Budejovice Ave.) overlooks the Michle and Kunratice forests.

The Hotel Olympik in Karlin, on the edge of the experimental housing site Invalidovna, completed in 1974, forms a new dominant over Karlin valley.

The ever-expanding city has approached the picturesque valley of Divoka Sarka by the high-rise building of the Research Institute of Mathematical Machines in Vokovice, from 1970.
