Each of Prague's neighborhoods has a distinct feeling, be it for the architecture or the inhabitants, the cafes or the restaurants. In recent years, changes have been happening fast; with the renovation of many neighborhoods, forgotten beauty and charm has been rediscovered.
Just as every visitor to walk along Prague’s cobbled streets is amazed and in awe of what they see around them, we too have a never ending appreciation for the city in which we live. We’re in a continuous state of awe and excitement for what’s happening around us. From the huge spectrum of architectural styles, echoing so much of Europe’s complex history, to booming culinary trends that are continually re-shaping food culture, and to our little niche, microbrews and artisanal fermented beverages, we’re so excited and proud of our home, Prague.
This is our updated Neighborhood Guide, complete with a dash of history and culturally relevant bits about each hood. Since we’re in the business of libations, we’ve focused on the best places to sample the local water. You’ll find all the best multi-tap pubs, pouring beers from the Czech Republic’s still growing and improving microbrewery scene, as well as cultural institutions that any Czech (or well seasoned beer drinker) hold in higher regard than any state office.
In recent years, Prague’s gastronomy scene has evolved at such a rapid pace, that now the finest dining establishments rival that of any other city. But underneath all of the new, flashy, and often dubious types of cuisine, we still have a soft spot for old school Czech dishes. With their own humble nuances and simple functionality, Czech cuisine compliments a fresh and well pulled golden lager like nothing else.
You’ll find both ends of the dining spectrum given equal attention, and we’ve even mentioned local coffee micro-roasteries, which deserve some love. We’ve included note worthy parks and green spaces, beer shops, and cafes. Our guide, just like our beloved city, is a living thing, changing fast. Read on, and write us with any updates or interesting things you experience. Na zdraví!
