The reconstruction project has been given definitive permission from Prague 1. It should start in 2018.
The reconstruction of the square between Mustek and Vodičkova Street will cost about two hundred million crowns. Wenceslas Square will be revived with new trees, benches and fountains. As soon as the project gets the final permit, the municipality has said they will prepare the plans for the reconstruction at the top of the square.
Architect Jakub Cigler, whose studio has prepared the transformation of Wenceslas square, said: “Compared to the competitive designs and documentation for zoning decisions, which were submitted in 2012, there have been some changes, including an increase of disabled accessibility space that is newly designed with minimal differences in height compared to the road pavement.”
