The area of today´s Žižkov went through a fast development in the second half of the 19th century, when the original vineyard area was changed to independent municipality with pictoresque character. Due to hilly terrain with steeply running streets and little squares it soon began to be called Prague Montmartre. And similarly as a well known artistic district in Paris, even Žižkov soon became a district searched by artists, bohemians and students.

Today this area belongs to the most popular residential locations in Prague. Not only because of a great accessibility to the city center but also due to its persisting bohemian character. Charming residential gallery houses with courtyards and quiet corners, inexhaustible number of coffeeshops, pubs and restaurants, places for cultural life and parks as Vítkov Hill or Parukářka with beuatiful views at Prague, this all makes Žižkov a very interesting and live location, ideal for living and spending a free time.
