Amazing place — and not only for breakfast! Blueberry pancakes, eggs made to order or just a toasted bagel and bottomless coffee — any choice here makes for a perfect start to your day. It looks more like a tiny bistro, but the friendly staff and familiar atmosphere make you feel really welcome and looked after.
Imagine ... You're walking around Prague, close to the river bank, and suddenly you see an incredibly vivid piece of art — a tribute to John Lennon that keeps on changing and expanding. The graffiti-covered wall has been recently painted white by artists who named this project "Wall is over!" as a sign that no wall is any longer a tool of oppression, but a free medium and anyone can do with it what they want, even paint it all white.
Old Town Square is a wonderful place, especially during Christmas time when the Christmas markets pop up here. In summer is the square equally special, with many artists and musicians performing live. It's very interesting to stop and watch the Astronomical Clock, too.
Franz Kafka's house is a really special place. While the inside is actually just a souvenir shop, it still manages to retain a 100% Kafkaesque atmosphere, with an exhibition about his life and authentic copies of his writing, correspondence and templates.
Want to try Czech cuisine but bored by having your drinks served to you by a waiter/waitress? This playful restaurant, with a fairytale-like atmosphere, lets the train engine do the job!
Petrin Hill means spring to me: I love walking here, and experiencing a completely different side of Prague from above. If you're not a fan of walking, you can choose to take a cable car up the hill, and then climb Petrin Tower for even better views.
St. Vitus Cathedral is, to me, the most powerful building in Prague. As soon as you enter the cathedral, its amazing stained-glass windows will take your breath away, especially the rosetta at the front. A wide choice of tours are available inside the cathedral, allowing you to explore the tombs of the Czech kings and more.
Charles Bridge is Prague's most beautiful bridge, full of artists selling hand-made jewelry, paintings, and other handicrafts. The rumor has it that while building it in the 14th century, the masons were adding raw eggs to the grout to make the whole mix stronger.
Our longest square - that is often called a shopping boulevard - is home to plenty of shops and restaurants to suit every taste and budget, plus a beautiful statue of Good King St. Wenceslas.
My favorite bar in Prague — with really friendly staff who will remember you if you come more than once - is the perfect place for visitors whose 'wild party' days are over. This is a really cozy place to either meet friends, enjoy a romantic rendezvous, or spend time on your own, with a glass of good-quality wine in an intimate atmosphere. My favorite evening getaway — it feels like staying in while socializing!
