Mini Guide Prague

       Stay at

Radisson Blu Alcron Hotel

The hotel was built in the 1930s and successfully combines Art Deco style and modern comfort. The breakfast buffet is really good and the Illy-coffee in the morning tasted amazing. This hotel is conveniently located near the biggest shopping streets, the Old Town and the subway stations Muzeum and Mustek.  (Stepanska 40, Praha 1) 

Design Hotel Josef

Located in the centre, this stylish city hotel is the perfect start for exploring Prague. (Rybná 693/20, Praha 1)

Authentic Czech/Bohemian cuisine and one of Prague’s most popular beer pubs.  (Dlouhá 33, Praha 1)

Great concept featuring local up and coming designers. If you’re looking for a special type of jewellery or extravagant apparel, this is the place for you. Stay tuned for my interview with designer Filip Jakap! (Malé námestí 12, Praha 1)

Cute shop with designers from Scandinavia, Italy, France and Great Britain. Apart from the really cool pieces, I liked their slogan: ‘that woman who buys with usbecomes an icon’. 🙂 (Vězeňská 6, Praha 1)

ARTĚL Malá Strana

Design shop specialized in Bohemian glasses with a vast selection of beautiful jewellery and home decor.  (U Lužickeho semináře 7, Malá Strana)

Visit

Prag6

As an art and architecture enthusiast, I had to walk up the to the castle on the Hradcany and visit the St. Vitus Cathedral.

Prag7

This cathedral is one of the most important examples of European Gothic architecture and its builders aspired to not only duplicate but also even surpass the cathedral in Reims, France. Please check the opening times before you walk up. I forget about this and arrived at 3.45 pm and the cathedral was closed already that day. Apparently, the times cited online are not the correct ones. Therefore, I would suggest to check at your hotel or at the tourist office.

I walked back over the Karlúv Most (Charles Bridge) and fell in love with Trdelník – a Czech pastry they call ‘chimney’ in English. It’s really sweet but really, really tasty. When you leave the Karlúv Most, there are plenty of places selling Trdelník. Moreover, there are small stands across the Old Town.
