The City of Prague has received a final construction permit for the reconstruction of the lower end of Wenceslas Square. City Hall spokesman Vit Hofman said work would begin next week.
The reconstruction work will be phased-out so as to minimize the inconvenience for pedestrians and traffic.
The reconstruction, which has been in the pipeline for years, is expected to bring more greenery and seating arrangements to the square and expand the area for pedestrians only.
It should cost over 150 million and be concluded by the end of 2018.
