Evaluation of a long-term influence of on-street parking regulation on business firms locations in the city of Prague
Lukeš, Václav ; Květoň, Viktor (advisor) ; Novotný, Václav (referee)
BC. VÁCLAV LUKEŠ - DIPLOMA THESIS Evaluation of a long-term influence of on-street parking regulation on business firms locations in the city of Prague Abstract Car use is one of the key conditions for many companies to carry out their activities. Limiting the use of cars by regulating parking in the use of public parking space might reduce the competitiveness of some companies through possible lower customer attractivity, limited comfort for commuters from distant locations or reduced supply. As a result, parking regulation can also influence the localisation of companies in the city itself. Foreign studies diverge in a view of the subject and to some extent, they do reflect the cultural environment of the region. Therefore, the aim of this thesis is to assess the influence of street parking regulation on their localization based on the example of the City of Prague using quantitative and spatial information about individual companies. Thanks to a significant statistical sample of subjects in the analysis, it is possible to evaluate whether the changes in the horizontal and/or vertical structure of companies are related to the evolution of changes in the regulation of on-street parking in the City of Prague.
Czechs and Germans in Prague: a competition of associational life at the turn of the 19th and 20th centuries
Kočárková, Kateřina ; Zelená, Alena (advisor) ; Emler, David (referee)
The work is devoted to Czech-German coexistence in Prague, at the turn of the 19th and 20th centuries. In 1848, the Czechs found themselves in the involuntary role of supporters of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, within which the Czech-speaking population had to live alongside the Germans, who also belonged to the territory. The coexistence of the two nations was unproblematic, rather variable, which was also reflected in the political and social spheres of life. The Czech-German coexistence was important for the development of the associational life. The creation and subsequent competition of these associations are the focus of this thesis. Three Czech institutions which were important for the contemporary cultural and social life and which had an analogous German pair were selected: The National Theatre and the New German Theatre, the Arco Cafe and the Union, and the Deutsches Casino together with the Měšťanská beseda. Their friendly and hostile tendencies and competition between them were examined.
