Hostavice is a village of medieval origin, the first mention of ot is from the year 1432. Until the late 19th century it was a small agricultural village, even today we can notice that the original village core at the final bus stop No. 110 is relatively small. On the place, where a park is nowadays, formerly a pond called Vidlak was located, The pond was later dried and on its place there is a grassy area. Just the same name street and willows around remember, where the pond was originally to be found. The most valuablemonument of Hostavice is a chateau in the middle of a large park. The chateau is a relatively modern buildingfrom the 19th century neo-renaissance style, i.e. it is more a villa than a chateau. The chateau with landentrepreneur Bata bought from landowner Kolman in 1934. Bata wanted to build a large garden city on plateau “Na Cihadlech” designed by his own regulatory plan. Satellite town should have been completely self-sufficient with its own shopping center, school and in the valley Rokytky should have been built a large sports complex with tennis courts. Unfortunately the whole project in the period immediately before the war in the tense political situation and military training ground was prefered. Hostavice jointed Prague together with Kyje in 1968.
Dry polder Čihadla is the largest hydro-ecological project in Prague. Rokytka trough, which was previouslyartificiallyrstraightened, has been again transformed into a natural form of meanders, wetlands and artificial pools. Alsoconfluence with Svepravicky stream has been moved further downstream and so Svepravicky stream now flows along the edge of the woods right between the trees. In the case of high water the entire polder is being closed and flooded, and thereby acting as a flood defense.
