Žižkov is a cadastral district of Prague, Czech Republic. Most of Žižkov lies in the municipal and administrative district of Prague 3. Prior to 1922, Žižkov was an independent city. The district is named after Hussite leader Jan ÎiÏka. It was historically a working-class district, and was sometimes referred to as “red Žižkov”, because so many of its inhabitants were members of the Communist party. Before World War II, Žižkov had a reputation as a borough with rough and dodgy inhabitants.[citation needed] This reputation spread across the whole former Czechoslovakia and it was still possible to trace it amongst the people many decades later. The Žižkovians were very proud of their “bad” reputation and up to this day they tend to refer to their neighbourhood as “Îizkov republic”. This sentiment was very often a source of inspiration for novelists or film makers. Today, Žižkov is undergoing a mini-urban renewal, with many older dilapidated buildings being reconstructed and restored. Due to its specific atmosphere, Žižkov became the Bohemian part of Prague, with many artists living or performing there. Famous poet and nobelist Jaroslav Seifert was born and spent most of his life there. Žižkov is said to have the highest number of pubs per capita of any city district in Europe. (wikipedia.org)
