Favourite Prague Places

Prague has so much to offer it is, of course, impossible to choose the best.  We love each location in its own way.  Also, nearly every time we go out we discover some place new and attractive.  This is a living city, constantly changing.

So we ask you, our readers, to list and vote on your favorite places in Prague.  One list for locations and another for food and drink.  Please leave a comment and I will incorporate it into the list.  Cheers!

Locations:

early music instruments

 

Czech Museum of Music:  A truly great interactive experience.  Not to be missed regardless of your tastes in music.

antiquities inside shopping mallRepublic Square(Namaste Republicky):  As shopping malls go, the Palladium is more fun than most, including an extensive food court.  Plus this square is near so many other interesting places.

Lennon wall for peace

 

Lennon Wall:  A visit here warms everyone’s heart. Láska is Czech for love.

 

facade of Lobcowicz Palace at entrance to Prague Castle

 

Lobkowicz Palace:  personalized view of Czech history that is impressive and moving.  Read about our visit here.

 

Ungelt: small historical area

Ungelt:  Good things come in small packages. History, culture, food and drink all together in one square and environs. Less crowded than nearby Old Town Square.

Palmovka Park

Parks:  I won’t name any one. There are so many and it does my heart good to see people, and their dogs, out enjoying themselves. Especially when the sun shines!

A house in Bubenec neighborhood

Bubenec neighborhood:  Our favourite pastime in any city visit is to walk through one or more of the nicer residential neighborhoods. This one in Prague is full of foreign embassies as well as ordinary houses like the one pictured.

Display area: Ikea

 

Wilson Station, aka Praha Hlavni Nadrazi, is a modern, clean, spacious shopping center that also serves as the main train station.  Also home to the Winton statue

an open part of Kampa island, PragueKampa Island:  A pleasant yet stimulating respite from the surrounding city.  Also an opportunity for us to revisit our love lock. More on Kampa

FOOD AND DRINK:

dessert at Cafe' Imperial, Prague

Cafe’ Imperial:  This building is heaven for art nouveau admirers; mind-boggling to everyone else.  The food and service are great too. Links here

 

tasting fun in Prague pubThe Beer Museum:  The one place we recommend more than any other.  Prague is the city of beer; here you can sample it all without getting drunk (too).  Travel Tip:  It is a pub, not a museum.  More

a tapas restaurant in Prague

Kofein, tapas restaurant:  Grand fun. Four of us shared 15 menu items, two bottles of wine and one liquor for 1,500 Kc (60 Euro) in 2011. It all tasted great.

Prague neighborhood restaurantSudicka:  A neighborhood restaurant we did not get to often enough. In 2013 it was re-incarnated and when we finally got back to try it we really enjoyed the food and neighbourliness.

 

  foreign language news at the Lovre Cafe’ Louvre:  Elegant coffee any time and great for breakfast. A time machine in more ways than one:  Mezicas . . . 

 

great MargaritasLas Adelitas:  There are many “Mexican” restaurants in Prague. This one has food that tastes like the real thing. As well as real people operating it.

 

 

good Pakistani food in Zizkov Mailsi Restaurant:  A neighborhood type place that has great Pakistani food served by a friendly family at reasonable prices.

 

 

old fashioned department store Bila Labut: (Submitted by reader)  “My favourite eating and drinking establishment is the self-service restaurant in Bila Labut, because this is very much what grabbing lunch in the old days must have been.”

 

Ziskov tower from Letna Beer GardenScott Stavrou of WriteAway Europe wrote:  “Letna Park Beer Garden and Lavka Patio – two of my all time favorite places to sip a beer and stare at beautiful Praha.”

  2. I adore Prague. I completely agree with what once a friend of mine told me. “It is like from a fairy tale”. Brno is also a place worth visiting in case one has more time to spend in Czech Rep.
