The shopping and entertainment centre in Zličín is located on the western outskirts of Prague. The layout of the building is designed so there is an immediate connection to the exit from the final stop of the metro on the B-Zličín line, and to urban and suburban public transport stops. Thanks to its easy access, the shopping centre is used by people living in both Prague and the central region of the Czech Republic. The shopping centre and its facilities have the necessary prerequisites for the sale of goods and provision of entertainment to broad sections of the population. The layout of the complex comprises a semi-enclosed indoor court, towards which are oriented the architecturally-accentuated main entrances for visitors to the centre. The entrances are located in the middle of each internal side (left and right facade). With regard to pedestrian access from the metro station, a further entrance is located in the east facade (in the direction of the access road), again accentuated by the architectural roof layout. These entrances lead visitors towards the straight-passage “mall” – which passes across the building. The interior of the central hall connected to the continuous passage is covered by an architecturally-accentuated segmented roof formed of steel trusses. Overall, the building is enhanced by elements of various types of roof lights. The shopping centre offers 70 shops, a multiplex cinema with 12 screens and a capacity of more than 3,000 visitors, a fitness centre, a bowling alley, an entertainment zone, restaurants, cafés, a food court with the capacity of 420, and children’s corner. The centre also contains a car part with 1,870 spaces.
