Being a part of the Austrian monarchy in times of the global wave of industrialization and urbanization of the 19th century, Prague has an abundance of quarters with great similarities to Vienna´s Gründerzeit-style. However, the history of how these quarters emerged and developed differs greatly.
One of Prague´s Gründerzeit districts is Zizkov, today a central part of the city, which emerged and existed for many years as an independent town outside Prague´s borders.
