Prague centre to become car-free zone by the summer
In an attempt to cut down on inner city transport and make the environment cleaner, the government reportedly has a plan in the pipeline to close off Prague city centre completely to all traffic, except electric shuttle trams and bicycles, which will then be free for everyone.
Word has already spread to Brussels, which commended the plan for being a brave but motivating one, and it is already thinking of making it compulsory for all cities in the EU, as part of its drive to combat pollution and energy consumption.
Environmentalists fully back the innovative initiative and believe that it would change the face of Europe if applied to all major cities.
Prague City Hall is worried about the logistics of the plan, though, and it thinks it might have a negative impact on tourism.
