Prague and the Central Bohemian Region help to get suburban trains underground and connect them with the metro
According to Valuo, out of 13 cities with more than 10,000 inhabitants, they can be reached by public transport to the center of Prague in less than 60 minutes. And often the prices of apartments are even half those of those in the capital, in addition, it is available here
housing in family houses. More and more of those who are currently dealing housing, therefore the location behind Prague is looking for on the train line.
The advantage of locations not far from the city and directly at train stops is that which offers faster return on investment. Real estate prices have been rising here in recent years and the same trend is expected in the future. Rental prices are also rising, rising by ten percent year on year compared to the average, and jumping by as much as a fifth year on year in the most exposed areas.
In addition to the railway connection and better connection to other types of public transport, Prague and
Central Bohemian Region they are going to invest in the near future. The so-called plan for New Connection II, especially in the relocation of urban and suburban trains underground and their connection with the metro. The connection of the metro with trains in transfer stations also gave the project the second name Metro S. The tunnels would lead from Smíchov to Karlín and from Nusle to Bubny. The central station would then be the newly built Opera near the main railway station and the Museum. However, other new stations would be created, such as Karlovo náměstí, Florenc and Bratří Synků. High-speed trains would then run on the surface.
From the region of Prague to the center for as long as, for example, from Strančice near Říčany
From the outskirts of Prague you can get to the center as quickly as from suburban areas with good train access.
“The train is such a new subway. For example, from Strančice u Říčan, which is one of the popular locations with a high majority of life and civic amenities, you can get to Prague Main Railway Station by train in 36 minutes. And at peak times, you can count on four connections per hour, which means you can get on the train no matter the time and be sure that something will go. ” says Kamil Dunaj from the real estate and development company Getberg and adds: “If, for example, we compare it with Prague’s Zličín or Letňany, the time we spend from their more remote parts on the way by bus to the metro and then to the center will be the same in time. But in Prague it is comparable housing about twice as much. “
A train station near large cities is becoming a phenomenon that changes real estate prices in the same way as in Prague metro stations or throughout the country. Nevertheless, the prices of flats at metro stations on the outskirts of Prague increased by as much as 30% per year.
Other benefits housing outside the city
Housing just outside the city brings with it many other benefits. Lower crime, safer space for children, healthier air and life close to greenery, where you can go for a walk, trip or sports. “Thanks to lower real estate prices, it is possible to buy an apartment or a house with more rooms, compared to, for example, Prague, and to furnish one of them as a study for a home office, which is a smart investment not only during a pandemic.” says Jiří Švec from RK Evropa.
