The Dávný District (also Dávný Obvod District and Dávný Čtvrť), literally "bygone, long-time, or ancient" district, is one of the three districts in the northern part of Prague in Deus Ex: Mankind Divided.

This district is located between Čistá Čtvrť and the Red Light District. The boundary between Dávný District and Čistá Čtvrť is marked by three archways, respectively located at the east side of the plaza overlooking the Vltava River, at the east end of the Pedestrian Bridge, and at the east of the Tourist Center.

Characteristics Edit

In contrast to the modern appearance of Čistá Čtvrť, the Dávný District has an older, more traditional appearance.

Notes Edit

  • The intended meaning of the district's name appears to be "old district."[1] However, the term "Dávný" translates to "bygone," "long-time," or "ancient." The correct translation of "old district" would "stará čtvrť." The in-game name may be a translation error.
  • While the term "Dávný Čtvrť" appears throughout game, including the street sign textures, this term is not a proper Czech expression because "dávný" does not match the grammatical gender of "čtvrť." The correct term would instead be "dávná čvrť."
  • The term "Dávný District" is used in the "location" identifier of recorded e-mails, as well as various in-game e-mail and dialogue correspondences.
