Podskali Custom House at Výton (Podskalská Celnice na Výtoni)
The custom house now holds a small museum on the second floor with photographs and models illustrating the history of the Podskali people and their methods of transportation along the river. Built in a Gothic style, the house features a plastered ground floor and a second floor that resembles a log cabin. You can visit for free with the Prague Welcome Card, which includes admission to other museums and monuments.

Remnants of the Settlement
