The former wastewater treatment plant is a unique place to visit. You will probably hesitate to tell anybody that while in Prague you visited the ancient, non-functional sewage treatment facility, but this place is an example of the history of architecture and engineering. You will be able to visit the underground of the building and see the century-old machinery. If you like photography, you will find a lot of unique shots to take. Very adventurous can climb the smokestack from outside or from inside – it would cost you a bit, but it may be worth it. Anyway, I did not have enough courage to do that…

The plant cannot be visited on your own, only with a proper person coming with you. And if you wish to have somebody with you who can speak English, you would have to order it via their website, but for the normal visit you just show up at the proper time. It is even possible that you will be only one visiting at the moment – and even if you do not understand Czech, you will pretty much figure out what was going on there back in times when it was operational. The place is available to visit on weekdays at 11 am and 2 pm, and on weekends and holidays at 10 am, 11:30 am, 1 pm, 3 pm and at 4:30 pm.

If you are visiting Prague on bicycle, you can follow the map in our blog about E-biking to point 9.

I recommend good shoes (no flip-flops) and a jacket (it is cold there).
