Environmental zone Prague 1 - Czechia

Prague used to be an important royal and imperial residence in the Holy Roman Empire and the historical capital of Bohemia. In the 14th century, it became a political and cultural centre in Europe under Charles IV.

With a population of 1.26 million, Prague is today the capital and the largest city in the Czech Republic. The city covers an area of 495 km² and consists of 22 districts with more than 1.2 million inhabitants. Prague 1 is the oldest part of the city. The 1st Prague administrative district includes the historical centre, Josefstadt, Kleinseite, Hradschin and the lower New Town. The district is located in the historical centre of the city on both sides of the River Vltava.

The environmental zone was introduced on 01.04.1999. It covers almost the entire area of the administrative district Prague 1.

The REG-Certificate for Czech environmental zones

In the Prague (Prague 1) environmental zone there is a driving ban for buses (M2, M3) and trucks (N2, N3) from 3.5 tons with EURO 0-3 standards. Vehicles with EURO 4-6 standards may enter the zone, but must register with the City of Prague in advance. Entry without prior registration will result in heavy fines. Different rules apply to buses. See below.

Green-Zones offers its registration service (for trucks) for the Prague 1 environmental zone and issues a Green-Zones REG-Certificate for the vehicle to be registered. The registration certificate (REG-Certificate) for European environmental zones developed by Green-Zones confirms to the buyer that Green-Zones has registered his vehicle for an environmental zone in the Czech Republic as required by law. The registration certificate is not an official badge/vignette.
