History of Prague 2
The Borough of Prague 2 encompasses a part of the New Town, Vyšehrad, a part of Royal Vinohrady, and a part of Nusle. This unit was created when Prague was divided into 10 administrative districts in 1960. This reorganisation broke traditional municipal boroughs into often as many as four or five new boroughs and severed numerous historical ties. The history of the territory occupied by Prague 2 extends far back into Czech history.
