Prague Off the Map

Kavárna Lucerna

If you feel like you missed out on the 1920s, then make a stop at Kavárna Lucerna for a coffee or a to die for hot chocolate. Don’t worry, they have a full bar as well and pour very affordable, yet tasty, local beers.  The atmosphere is well-worth the visit since the interior conjures up the atmosphere of the first republic of Czechoslovakia, a time when cafe culture reigned in this part of the then democratic world.  As a bonus you get an up-close-and-personal view of David Černý’s – the controversial Czech artist-upside down horse with Saint Wenceslaus perched upon him. You’ll also find Kavárna Lucerna packed during many times of the year due to the numerous film festivals going on in its adjacent, classic turn-of-the-century theater.
