  • 4.Take home a piece of traditional Czech art

    Hiding in a passage off the main street, Galerie Art displays and sells traditional Czech art including the hard to resist pottery by an artist ‘Mariz’.

    You might have to walk up and down Latran Street a couple of time before you notice the small passage leading to the door of a small galeries specialising in all Czech art. Rather than becoming a victim of airport gift shops, have a look around here for a genuine memory reminiscent of your trip.

    Picking yet another colourful mug or bowl by Mariz to compliment our ever growing eclectic collection of his pottery is always a real pleasure.

    The galerie is rather hidden in a small courtyard off the main street (Latran St. 13)

  • 5.Tuck into old style Bohemian cooking

    The restaurant U Dvou Marii is bound to improve your opinion of Czech cuisine with its focus is on traditional medieval recipes.

    One of the restaurant’s sublime offerings is a traditional plate of roast meats washed down by a local beer followed by a hot cup of mead or delicious deserts you won’t find anywhere else. All of this can be enjoyed whilst sitting on the rustic river bank terrace, and if it gets a little chilly, just ask the attentive staff for a blanket.

    The rustic decor is a piece of art especially when accompanied by the true medieval cuisine cooked to perfection.

    There’s little seating inside but big part of the river side terrace is under a roof.

  • 6.Enjoy a concoction at an old pharmacy

    Bar Apotheka in Latran Street 46 where the barmen know their stuff should suit any occasion for a good cocktail.

    The intimate Bar Apotheka has taken over an old pharmacy, hence its name, and refurbished it by blending its heritage left behind by the original purpose of the building with traditional England bar elements of dark leather and classic lines. Service is sleek as are the cocktails presented to you.

    Their olives stuffed with tuna is a great salty snack to accompany your drink.

    The bar is cozy with only few seats and some standing space.
