Prague 1 has introduced a ban on nighttime entry to specific areas within the Old Town.

The City Hall has revised traffic regulations, displaying prohibition signs with additional information in key streets such as Pařížská, Dlouhá, Rybná, Břehová, and Kozí.

The proposed measure seeks to maintain a tranquil and secure environment, fostering an overall high quality of life.

Residents of Dlouhá street, where a large number of popular nightlife venues are located, have long complained about the noise.

The restricted area, delineated by Dvorak’s Embankment, Pařížská, and Revoluční, will be off-limits from 10 pm to 6 am. Each prohibition sign is accompanied by a supplemental indicator specifying the time.

The ban will not apply to vehicles involved in supplying goods, medical assistance, repair, maintenance, and communal services, as well as those “transporting disabled individuals, taxis, and vehicles that belong to people residing, accommodating, or having property in the areas designated by the sign”.

 

According to Prague 1 spokeswoman Karolina Šnejdarová, the night ban will take effect on Thursday, November 23.

Municipal police and regular police patrols will be empowered to halt drivers during the restricted hours to ensure compliance with the road signs. If necessary, drivers may be requested to provide an explanation for violating the ban.

Šnejdarová mentioned instances of recurring sports car “races” in the area as one of the reasons prompting the decision.
