There is no doubt that the railway influenced importantly the whole region of the Sázava Basin, mainly as concerns its economy. It is even very hard to imagine what would the life in here look like if the railway was not here. There are still many places along the Sázava River that are inaccessible otherwise than by train. Building of the Posázavský Pacifik railway was initiated towards the end of the 19th century. Except for its short segment from Prague-Vršovice to Prague-Modřany, was the whole of the railway from Modřany, through Davle, along the Sázava River up to Světlá nad Sázavou built at the turn of the 19th and 20th century.
The history of the railway station building is well connected with the construction of the railroad from České Budějovice to Prague. The southern part of the station was built in 1871 in Neo-Renaissance style. The northern part with a waiting hall is an extension from 1895. During the construction of the northern part, the Imperial lounge was placed in the centre. It was used as a luxurious waiting hall for Franz Ferdinand d’Este.
The Zampach Bridge GABRO below Jilove is a unique technological monument. It is the tallest stone bridge built within the railway network in the Czech Republic. It spans the Kocour [“Tomcat”] Valley at the height of 41.5 m. Total length of the bridge is 110 m.
