Layout and Level Plan of the Royal City of Prague
The late 19th century saw the beginnings of industrial development, primarily in the Smíchov, Karlín, Libeň and Holešovice districts. People started to migrate to the capital from the countryside in search of work and Prague began to grow. Soon, however, social problems such as water supply and transportation had to be addressed. The response
to this was the first Prague regulatory plan in 1889 – the Layout and Level Plan of the Royal City of Prague.
