River Loučná embankment in Litomyšl

The small historic town of Litomyšl in eastern Bohemia is renowned for its Renaissance chateau on the UNESCO World Heritage List and for the opera festival named after the famos composer Bedřich Smetana who was born here. Thanks to the thoughtful strategy of the municipality, it has also become an important center of contemporary Czech architecture in recent years. The project deals with the redesign of the city park and part of the Loučná River embankment in the immediate vicinity of the historic centre. A significant value of the area was the natural character of the river banks and a quiet picturesque adjacent street.
