Bakery & Restaurant

 

Eska is mesmerizing and acts as theatre for the diner. Nestled in the heart of Karlín, this bright and airy loft space with sizeable windows is a bakery, a restaurant and cafe. Grab a seat at the hightop table and become enthralled by the perfect view with all of the chefs and front of house staff prepping, cooking, and vibing out to great tunes. The coffee is great, service is attentive and everything coming out of that kitchen is made before your eyes.

Staroměstské náměstí

Public Space

 

It would be incredibly difficult not to include Old Town Square at the centre of the city's public space.While it is vastly over-saturated with tourists and currency exchanges, it can at first feel chaotic, but once you phase out that noise and truly focus on where you are in the world, you are overcome with emotion and gratitude. Old Town Square is the central hub that connects all the tiny one-off side streets to one another which makes for the perfect opportunity to stumble and get lost. 

Area / Staroměstské Náměstí

Vibe / The true magical heartbeat of Prague.

Staré Město

Neighbourhood

 

Prague's Old Town is overwhelming in its whimsicality. The first time you wander the streets getting lost in the allure of every building's ornamentation, extravagant architecture, lovely street corners, or quaint side streets, you will immediately fall in love. Seek out David Černý's, "The Hanging Man" amongst many of the art installations displaced in this area, grab a pastry and a coffee and wander aimlesslessly. It is the best way to discover the beauty of Old Town.

Area / Staré Město

Vibe / Cobblestone streets lined with stunning pastel coloured ornamental facades.

kavarna místo

Cafe

 

Attention to detail is not only found in the coffee or the food here, but Místo is incredibly thoughtful in its design and space. The atmosphere is warm with the help of wood cladding and minimal with its simple, linear marble bar. Upon entry, you are welcomed by concrete bleacher-like steps, which is arguably the best seat in the house, and a gorgeous coffee machine accompanied by a top notch pastry case. There is also a full kitchen and eat-in menu if you are feeling something more satiating. Spending time here is a pleasure.

Area / Letna

Vibe / Neighbourhood gem offering stellar coffee, savoury eats and good music. 

Pražský hrad

Architecture

 

Having over 700 rooms, Prague Castle is the largest in the Europe and one of the largest castle complexes in the world.  A perfect day in Prague would be to cross the Charles Bridge to walk the grounds of the complex, take a tour, or people watch. Be sure to get there early before the tour groups arrive and experience one of most breathtaking panoramic views of this stunning city.  

Area / Hradčany

Vibe / Castle complex across the river and opposite the city centre enlivened with tourists.
