Café Louvre

Best Of IgoUgo

Restaurant | "Stepping back in time"

Quote:
Cafe Louvre is a spectacular place. My husband and I popped in on our last day for coffee and a cake and we were incredibly impressed with the decor, the service, and the sense of history of the surroundings. I actually wish we had allowed ourselves more time here, instead of rushing off on our last day.Cafe Louvre is quietly unassuming from street-level - just red lettering above the entrance in a large building, surrounding by other shop signs. Yet, it's been there since 1902 and was visited by Kafka and Albert Einstein back in the day. After walking up the steps however, it becomes a whole different story. There are different rooms, but we were sat at the central room. It is beautiful i...Read More

Walking through Prague

Story/Tip

We lucky to have great weather on our November weekend to Prague so we decided to get around all the sites by walking. What a great choice! Prague is an ideal city for walking, its a small city (none of the main sites are more than a 20 minute walk away from each other), the sidewalks are wide and many of the streets in the old town are pedestrianised. On top of all that it is a beautiful city - full of the most random collection of buildings I've ever seen. In 20 minutes you can wander through buildings that stretch from medieval gothic, Art Nouveau, to Communist era, and back again.The first day we picked a few places we wanted to visit (the astronomical clock, the river and Charles Brid...Read More

Veletrzni Palace (Museum Of Modern Art)

Best Of IgoUgo

Attraction | "An unexpected contemporary art collection"

Quote:
There were a few attractions in this out-of-the-way corner of Prague (this museum and an over-rated 1950s cafe) so we journeyed out here one afternoon. I had read that the museum had a lot of Czech modern art - which sounded quite interesting. What I hadn't realised is what a great collection of modern art they had - including a great selection of Impressionist masters and Picassos. It was actually a bit of a pleasant surprise.We paid around 200 czk (discounts for students) and spent a few hours wandering around until it closed at 6. It's actually not that large, so you won't need to devote hours to visiting. The internal courtyard that stretches up the 4 floors allowed us to peak at the e...Read More

Bakeshop Praha

Attraction | "Artisan bakery in the heart of Prague"

Bakeshop is a lovely cafe/bakery near the old square in the very centre of Prague serving up some pretty tasty food and is a great place for breakfast, lunch or a snack. We stumbled upon Bakeshop after walking up an appetite in the old square. My husband and I were pretty hungry and decided to go to the nearest lunch place recommended in our guidebook - Bakeshop. It's located on the corner of Kozi, so it was pretty easy to find (handy for hungry traveller) and we were not disappointed. Bakeshop has a spectacular range of breads, including a pretty serious range of sourdough breads (walnut, whole wheat, black olive, cherry pecan golden raisin). Breads, cakes, cookies and quiches are all mad...Read More

Hotel NH Praha Radlicka

Best Of IgoUgo

Hotel | "An upmarket budget choice"

Quote:
We booked two nights at the Hotel NH Praha Radlicka after finding a deal online and after reading several positive reviews elsewhere. Apart from being some distance from the centre of town (Andel metro, 3 - 4 stops from the centre on the metro) we really enjoyed our stay and the hotel had a lot of things to recommend it to us.Firstly, the hotel is decorated in a fresh, contemporary style that manages to be very both comfortable and luxurious at the same time. The rooms are warm and spacious, with hardwood floors, flat screen TVs, comfortable beds and pretty cool, all black bathrooms. Two huge factors for me are noise and light - I like my sleep - and the windows kept all the noise out (we ...Read More
