Smetana embankment could be closed to motor vehicles in late spring/early summer
Prague City councillors on Tuesday are to discuss a plan that should lead to the easing of traffic along the Smetana embankment in the Czech capital. Under the proposal being tabled, the embankment would be closed to motor vehicles every Saturday beginning in mid-May and lasting until the end of June. The local tram route would not be affected. The Smetana embankment runs along the Vltava River close to the city’s historic centre, between the Charles Bridge and Legion Bridge; it features a bike path that continues on to Podolí and further out of the city.
