Podskalí Custom House at Výtoň

The former customs house building at Vytoň, number 412 on what is now Rašínovo nábřeží, is the last remnant of the ancient Podskalí fishing settlement apart from the early Baroque parish church of St Cosmas and St Damian.
 

The Podskalí settlement existed from the end of the 12th century and its inhabitants gradually acquired a monopoly right to trade in the wood that was floated past here down the Vltava river.
