Alluring architecture, overwhelming brews, abundant art, and a romantic atmosphere all make Prague a city unlike any other. After it was freed from communism during the 1989 Velvet Revolution, this Czech capital turned into a gem of a city on par with Rome, Paris or London.
To put together a list of the hotspots in this bohemian city, we browsed through travel and fashion influencer fashioninmysoul aka Barbora Ondrackova’s Instagram feed. From cultural sights to the most luxurious places, here are all the places that have us crushing on Prague.
Eat Like Royalty
Prague boasts of a dynamic gastronomical experience, ranging from traditional dining options to casual cafes to outstanding international hubs. We’ve noted down some of Barbora’s favourites.
Terasa U Prince
Offering a romantic view of the Old Town Square from the rooftop of Hotel U Prince, Terasa is a bar and grill hotspot which will instantly win your heart along with your stomach. The family-owned hotel offers delicious cuisine and exclusive cocktails–all of which are enhanced by the spectacular view.
Café by Tretter’s
What started as a small restaurant has quickly become a four generational masterpiece inspired by the tradition of café bars in European metropolises. Enjoy a refreshing cup of coffee from the bistro while munching on their signature croissants or homemade donuts.
La Degustation Bohême Bourgeoise
A recommendation by AiSPi travel experts, La Degustation Bohême Bourgeoise offers a true chef’s table style dining experience with an open kitchen. Feel the true joy of dining under modern chandeliers, cushioned by comfortable leather chairs as you enjoy the eight-course tasting menu.
Sip The Most Delicious Drinks
Did you know that the Czech Republic consumes more beer than any other nation? The country has been producing beer since the 10th century, originally brewed by monks. A visit to Prague is incomplete without a stop to enjoy the local beer and cocktail (or five).
DANIELAS by Barock
Located in the heart of Prague, this restaurant was once a famous hardware store dating back to the 19th century. The luxuriously intimate interiors are a result of the genius behind model turned interior designer Jessica Sjöö. “We wanted to create a place where fashion, design, a pleasant environment, good music and great food and cocktails come together,” she said. Although their food is great, it’s the bar that we really admire. The place is responsible for some unforgettable cocktails like the Barock Spritz and Pear Play.
Liquid Office Bar
Combining the concepts of day to night service, Liquid Office Bar runs as a Coffee Office in the morning where customers can enjoy delicious coffee from the Liberec roastery Nordbeans, fresh croissants, and cronuts from a local bakery.
After 5 pm, this coffee house transforms into a Cocktail Office–a cocktail bar with a signature drinks menu highlighting seasonal flavours. Their groundbreaking drinks are prepared using modern mixological techniques but you can grab your favourite classics if need be.
Dance The Night Away
If you can’t dance in Prague, where can you?
Focusing on electronic dance music, Epic is Prague’s most modern multi-genre music club. It is spread over three underground floors, two of which can host guests. The club welcomes the biggest DJs such as Don Diablo, Oliver Heldens, Paul Van Dyk, and others. Prepare to dance the night away while being surrounded by world-class sounds, LED screens, and state-of-the–art lights for an amazing acoustic and visual experience.
See All The Spectacular Sights
Beautiful architecture is the cornerstone of the city of Prague. From Gothic influences to baroque motifs, you’ll find it all and more.
Dating back to 870, the royal palace of Prague Castle is believed to have been founded by Prince Borivoj and has an amazing history. It is located within the historic centre of Prague and has been awarded the title of UNESCO World Heritage Site. It holds beautiful gothic and baroque structures which were built several hundreds of years ago. Today it is considered to be the largest ancient castle in the world and covers over 18 acres. Although the castle by itself is a structure to behold, it is the relics of Bohemian kings, precious artefacts, art treasures, and historical documents that really grab and hold our attention.
St. George’s Basilica is one of the oldest religious structures at Prague Castle. The Romanesque form has retained its captivating elegance through time and renovations.
This arch bridge in Prague is a mediaeval stone bridge that crosses the Vltava river. Construction began in 1357 under King Charles IV and was finished in the early 15th century. Originally called the Stone Bridge, 30 statues of saints were added onto the blocks to decorate the bridge.
