The area in question, 1. máje street and Pivovarská street, can be called the backbone of the town of Vimperk. It forms an essential axis in the east – west direction. It leads from the periphery gradually to the historic center. Several important streets open into the axis, which divide it into tracts and create small squares at the intersections.
The importance of this axis is confirmed by the location of educational, cultural, administrative, commercial and sports institutions. In the historic, more densely built-up part is a lively commercial parterre.
Currently, most public spaces are usurped by car transport. Staying and walking is unpleasant and sometimes even dangerous for pedestrians. Not only the large number of parking spaces, but especially their unsuitable organization causes a feeling of chaotic arrangement and intensifies the inconvenience of walking.
The design changes this situation, preferring pedestrians to motorists. It adjusts the widths of sidewalks, streets, intersections, and populates the streets with rows of trees, new public lighting and urban furniture.
The territorial study for the entire area was prepared in 2017. In 2020, the implementation of the 1st stage was started – 1. máje street.
