SEVEN Days Is Not Enough

Prague 7 (“Sedmička”) offers a huge number of various activities. It is easily accessible from the center and the surroundings of the city, and yet so much connected with nature. It is simply an excellent space to live for both individuals and families with children. In Sedmička anyone can accentuate their individuality. 

In the Embrace of Water

The seventh Prague district boasts with an extraordinary location within the metropolis. The regions of Holešovice and Bubeneč are from the south, west and north lined with a huge bend of the Vltava River, while Troja is located to the north across the water. As in other city districts directly adjacent to central Prague, the biggest development of Holešovice and Bubeneč occurred after the mid-nineteenth century. The massive construction transformed the originally fishing and agricultural settlements into a full-fledged part of the city today.

The Holešovice panorama is mainly made of tenement houses with courtyards, located mainly between the Argentinská Street and the river bend. Bubeneč and Troja, on the other hand, are regions with dominant individual family houses of mostly premium category. Bubeneč, in particular, is a neighborhood of luxury residences and embassies. The neighboring Royal Deer Park makes this micro-region a pearl among the residential areas. Given the closeness to the center, the accessibility and public facilities, Sedmička is suitable for living for virtually all groups of inhabitants of middle and upper class. The offer of dozens of educational facilities of the seventh district can be easily extended by schools from the neighboring city districts, especially Prague 6 and Prague 1.

Prague 7 is extraordinarily located and easily accessible from virtually all directions. From the center to Holešovice it is just a jump over the Hlávkův Bridge. Holešovičky and the Barikádníků Bridge offer an escape to the city ring road or the north of the country. The districts of Karlín and Libeň are accessible thanks to the Libeňský Bridge. The Holešovice peninsula is crossed from south to north by the red line metro C with two stations ending in distant Letňany in the north. There is also a dense network of tram lines, which will make available all the significant places in Sedmička. The Holešovice train and bus stations and the Praha-Bubny railway station are also major transportation hubs. The new Blanka tunnel complex that pushes the accessibility Prague 7 one level up also includes the Troja Bridge. This important construction contributes to the integration of the districts on both banks of the Vltava River and greatly speeds up the journey to the center, especially from Troja and the northern parts of the entire region.
