In 2013, the municipality management has decided to close the embankment for cars on Saturdays. Trial run of this new legal regulations was placed in the zone between National Theatre and Charles Bridge for six weeks in May and June 2013. On Saturdays, only pedestrians, cyclists and trams were allowed to enter.
Calming of automobile traffic was welcomed mainly by managers of popular embankment restaurants as well as people who come to enjoy the view of river Vltava, Charles Bridge and Prague Castle. Anyway, after this trial period, the management of the capital evaluated the project and decided the regulation would not be kept permanently.
And what do you think? Should the car traffic be allowed on Smetana embarkment and particularly to whole city centre?
