The Czech capital has confirmed its position as the best city in the world. In the prestigious ranking of the renowned Time Out magazine ranking the best city in the world, Prague took a good seventh place. The magazine in the Czech capital mainly appreciates the amount of greenery and excellent walking distance.
When we add good transport accessibility mainly thanks to sophisticated HMD and a dense network of roads, rich cultural life, lots of sports fields and especially a very good level of safety, we really find few places in the world that would be more attractive for life. It is therefore not surprising that in addition to Czechs, foreigners are also moving to Prague more and more often. The population is thus increasing every year and this trend will not just end.
One of the fundamental factors that come with the new Praguers, but mostly slows down, is the lack of building land for housing construction. The capital can hardly resist the influx of new people, thanks to its wide range jobs and above all a higher salary base, the interest of people from other regions is understandable. Instead of obstacles and complications, he would therefore have to meet this trend.
The role of the city in this is relatively simple. It is enough to finally approve a new zoning plan with a sufficient flat solution for large-scale residential construction. The current one, which has been in force since 2000, has long since been exhausted. At the same time, the lack of vacant development areas, together with the lengthy permitting process, is the main reason why housing in the capital it is mostly more expensive and thus its availability decreases.
If Prague wants its position on the prestigious rankings you can in the future, in addition to green areas and short distances, it must also be affordable housing. However, this without significant development allows a new zoning plan will not be possible.
