Renovation of Jiřího z Poděbrad Square Officially Started

The first stage of the long-awaited reconstruction of Jiřího z Poděbrad Square has started in Prague.

The renovation will last 33 months (until September 2026). Cultural events and the traditional farmers’ market will not be affected – they will continue to be held in different parts of the square, which will not be affected by the works at the moment.

The city plans to plant over 140 new trees and install an irrigation system that will ensure the preservation of the square’s greenery.

Children will also benefit from the upcoming renovation as the architects seek to expand the current playground and create new opportunities for play.

The square’s fountain will also be revitalised and new pedestrian crossings will make the use of underpasses unnecessary. Finally, the city will also establish barrier-free access to the metro and renovate the entire station.

The overall revitalization will also build on some completed smaller modifications – new pedestrian crossings, expanded tram islands and other modifications around the intersection of Vinohradská and U Vodárny streets.

These improvements will be reinforced by additional pedestrian connections during the revitalization process.

Jiřího z Poděbrad is one of the busiest squares in the capital city, yet it has long been left in unsatisfactory condition. Its redesign has been discussed for more than twenty years. The latest project has been drawn up over the past two years.
