Some of the estimated 100,000 cars using Prague’s north-south motorway or Magistrála every day. Along parts of the busy road, such as near Prague’s main rail station, there is not even a pavement for pedestrians to walk or sufficient crossings or underpasses to get across.

The Magistrála’s blight is most evident at the top of Wenceslas Square where the imposing National Museum and monument commemorating Jan Palach is cut off from the rest.

Prague City Council is now mulling a wide ranging study by the studio of Danish architect Jan Gehl which combines some radical suggestions and some more manageable first steps to deal with the problem.
