What people say

"📍Tram stop "Ujezd" (Mala Strana neighborhood) Completely different vibe at Café Savoy: you have a date with History in a gorgeous First-Republic café. This café has been around since 1893 and went through crazy times: it had to close during the 1st World War, was a recruiting office for the communist police, before being a smoky haunt during the Velvet revolution (1989). Eating at Café Savoy means sitting under a Neo-Renaissance ceiling and beautiful chandeliers, next to large windows, in an Art Nouveau decor. It has a spacious interior and is also well-known for serving gargantuan breakfasts and a Viennese-style menu. Last but not least: its location between Kampa and Petrin Hill is ideal, making it a strategic café to rest and be wowed, before you continue your visit of Mala Strana. Attention please: the place is often crowded, it is recommended to book a table online before you go. "

"One of the largest and most successful café/restaurants in Prague. A busy and perpetually full café with staff in constant motion and a gorgeous interior. In addition to coffee they offer excellent food and a broad selection of wines. A perfect place for breakfast or lunch in grand style. Seasonal and permanent café menus with a selection of Czech specialities. Try one of their classic Czech desserts, made at their own bakery, with your coffee. You could stop here before making your way back to your accommodation. "

Additionally no, Prague is a relatively affordable city, making it an attractive travel destination for budget-conscious travelers.

When it comes to food, be sure to check: - Kolachkes (Traditional Czech Cookies) are small, sweet, and perfect for snacking on while exploring the city; made from a rich, buttery dough that is rolled into small balls and then filled with a variety of sweet fillings such as fruit preserves, nutella or poppy seeds (and are often sprinkled with powdered sugar for an extra touch of sweetness) - Trdelník, made from a dough composed of yeast, flour, sugar, and eggs, the seemingly gourmet treat is wrapped around a spit and grilled until crispy on the outside and soft on the inside. Traditionally coated in sugar and cinnamon for a sweet and aromatic flavor. Beverages? Beer, Becherovka (Herbal Liquor), Absinthe. Highlights: 🍺 Beer - The Czechs will tell you that their beer is the best in the world, and they ought to know. Per capita, the Czech Republic consumes more beer than any other country. Pilsner Urquell, the worldʼs first pilsner beer, is top of the line; Gambrinus, made at the same brewery, is also good. The dark Krušovice has a surprisingly light quality; Budvar is the original Budweiser; and Staropramen is the Czech Republicʼs proud working-class brew. Small brewery labels, like Bernard and Lobkowicz, are also worth trying. Czech beer is rated by degrees – 10 degree, 11 degree, 12 degree – with the alcohol content increasing as the numbers rise. 🗿The Golem - Prague golem is a legendary figure in the city’s history and has become a popular souvenir for visitors. The Golem is said to have been created in the early 19th century by a rabbi named Judah Loew, who used the creature to protect the Jewish people from persecution. According to legend, the golem was made of clay and was brought to life through a magical ritual; it quickly became known for its immense strength and loyalty to its creator, but its power was also feared. Eventually, the rabbi realized he needed to destroy the creature before it caused any harm. Today, the golem is a symbol of Jewish heritage and the power of folklore.
