Prague is not willing to invest in parts of the city’s zoo which have been flooded repeatedly in recent years, the city’s mayor Tomáš Hudeček said on Wednesday. Mr. Hudeček is pushing for the zoo’s management to build planned new pavilions costing tens of millions of crowns in higher parts of the complex, which lies by the River Vltava in the Troja district. The mayor said even if the zoo was fitted with flood defences they could be breached in the event of an exceptional inundation.
