Best Prague Coffee Shop

 

In Prague, coffee is a tradition. The inhabitants know how to appreciate it and especially how to prepare it. Coffee has always been and still remains to be a good opportunity to meet friends and tell stories.

 

The first coffee shop of Prague was opened at the beginning of the 18th century by Deotodus Damascenus, who brought the coffee over from Damascus. Since then, everybody tell his stories in these coffee shops. For example, “the famous circle of Arconautes” is often told; where a group of German intellectuals where became famous Max Brod and Franz Kafka (and who gave the name of the coffee shop Arco. Also, the coffee shop Slavia was the symbol of the Czech national movement in 19th century, used as a meeting place for the dissidents of the communist regime.

These shops (even the smallest), are thus cultural, peaceful places which are always good to have a rest in. In order to be close to all of these coffee shops, it’s better to find a well located hotel a Prague. Here is a small guide which will help you chose the right coffee shop for you.

 

Slavia coffee shop

The most famous coffee shop in Prague is Slavia and is a symbol of the essence of the city: a tempestuous history with a rich cultural life. The coffee is really quite expensive but of course delicious. Big windows open to a remarkable panoramic view of Prague, (the castle, the warm colours of the roofs of Malá Strana, the Charles and Vltava bridge, the National Theatre…)

Louvre coffee shop

The “Louvre” is above all a meeting place. You can go there to drink a coffee, to eat, to snack or even to play billiard. The conversation can be as intellectual as the wrongs of the world or as simple as the weather. Or if you prefer, you can sit in peace and read your news paper.
