“The ancient splendor and beauty of Prague, a city beyond compare, left an impression on my imagination that will never fade” – Richard Wagner.
If you’re heading out for dinner, you might like to consider the Old Town district, the medieval heart of the city, where some of the most beautiful sights of Prague can be seen.
Kolkovna – Kolkovna serves good, honest Czech food and fresh Pilsner Urquell beers in a historical, pub style restaurant. Good prices, but gets busy so best to book.
Sherwood Restaurant & Bar – Ideal for informal group dining, with decent food priced to match most groups’ budgets, in a friendly atmosphere. Booking recommended.
The Medieval Tavern – Looking for something really different? Experience a 5 course medieval banquet, complete with “live medieval music & entertainment” – whatever that entails?!
Entertainment & Leisure
If you’re looking for something to fill your evenings while you’re in town, we highly recommend a visit to the Prague State Opera – an incredibly beautiful building with a turbulent past, surviving World War II and the rise and fall of Communism. Now The Prague State Opera presents a varied programme of opera and ballet performances by Verdi, Tchaikovsky, Puccini, Rossini, Donizetti, Prokofiev and other international composers.
It would be crazy not to mention the incredible brewing heritage boasted by Prague and the surrounding area! The Czechs are the largest consumers of beer per capita on the planet, so make like a local and head to a Beer Tasting :)
