Some of the most popular localities of Prague are to receive free Internet coverage. Starting at the beginning of the next year, Prague citizens and visitors will have the possibility to connect to Wi-Fi free of charge, for example in the Botanical Gardens or Zoo.

Within the frame of the “Smart Prague” project, Prague’s representatives have decided to make the capital even more communication and visitor friendly. Selected places in the Czech Republic’s capital will therefore be covered with a Wi-Fi signal, starting next year.

Free Wi-Fi Will be Available at the Prague ZOO, the Botanical Garden, the Petřín Hill and the “Náplavka” From 2017

The Prague Zoo, the Botanical GardensPetřín Hill, and the “Náplavka” embankment of the Vltava river in the Smíchov quarter are the first four areas chosen. “We would like to continue with Letná and Stromovka,” the mayor Adriana Krnáčová said of the plans. So it seems that two popular parks in Prague 7 will be the next localities to receive Wi-Fi coverage.

Prague is also considering using wireless IP video-cameras to increase security. “In the future, we would like to connect the Wi-Fi network with the system of smart street-lamps, which, for example, keep track of free parking spaces, spread the Wi-Fi signal and charge electromobiles,” the mayor added.
