Travel between Překážka and the districts north of the railroad is possible only through the metro station.
This part of Prague has fallen into disrepair after the Aug Incident. In contrast to the districts to the north, this part of Prague is dilapidated and has a high population of augmented persons. Překážka is also known to Prague locals as the "poor district."

- Čapkova Kašna (Čapek Fountain or Čapek's Fountain) is presumably named after Karel Čapek, an early 20th century Czech writer and playwright. Čapek is most famous for his novel War with the Newts and the play R.U.R. (Rossum's Universal Robots), which introduced the word robot (derived from the Czech word "robota," meaning "servitude" or "work"). This is one of the earliest literary works, if not the first, that depicts the "robot as a threat" trope and an uprising of artificial intelligent beings, though certainly not the first one to feature an artificial being.
