Zizkov cargo station plans challenged

Plans to transform the defunct Zizkov cargo station into a new city neighborhood in Prague 3 won’t have gotten any easier after it emerged that the Ministry of Culture (perhaps shocked by the hole in its parking lot) is considering protecting the old station. The 1930’s facility was apparently very progressive in its time, and some local architects and activists insist the site should be preserved as a cultural monument. Radio Cesko was going on about it yesterday, while the investors behind the scheme won’t be pleased to see it becoming a campaign topic.
