Alliiertenstrasse, named in 1909 after Austria’s allies during the Congress of Vienna. In 1814, Emperor Franz I received his allies, Tsar Alexander of Russia and King Friedrich Wilhelm of Prussia, who were scheduled to arrive at the same time for the Congress of Vienna, Am Tabor, at the end of the road to Prague towards the city center, with a large retinue and went with them through the Jägerzeile (today Praterstrasse) into the city. (The house at Praterstrasse 33, built in 1896/1897, was named To the Three Allies in memory of this and is now known as the Alliiertenhof.) Up until 1909, the Alliiertenstrasse was a part of the Prager Reichsstrasse that was separated from the rest of the course by the Danube regulation and the construction of the North Railway Station.
