Valentine’s day is knocking on the door and you might be already trying to figure out, how you’re going to spend it. There are some classic things which suggest themselves – datenight including cinema and a dinner or maybe only the dinner with your significiant other. However, what if you happen to be in Prague, just at the time the St. Valentine’s comes up? For that reason, we’re bringing you a few tips on how to spend this special day together, including some fancy breakfast spots, lovely restaurants and places for a romantic walk.
First things first, you should get a big breakfast to gain some energy for the day. Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, right? There are two cozy and quite fancy places we would like to show you. First one is Café Savoy. This beautiful café is situated on the left bank of the river Vltava and it belongs to the Ambiente restaurants group. This restaurant and coffee bar intends to evoke the First Czechoslovakian Republic and its era, one of the most thriving time periods of our nation’s history. And what can you have for breakfast here? From Continental, to French or English breakfast, to boiled or scrambled eggs or French toast or a Prague ham…you choose!
Another place where you might stop by to get a breakfast or just a morning coffee (with a cake maybe?) is Café Louvre. This café, bearing the name of the famous gallery in Paris, has been standing on Národní třída for exactly 123 years and even such persons as Franz Kafka or Albert Einstein used to come here during their stay in Prague. By the way, it’s just a few minutes from our apartments in Vladislavova street!
After you’ve had a big breakfast, it’s time to get some fresh air. Honestly, basically anywhere you decide to go for a stroll in the centre of Prague, it’s all quite romantic and suitable for the Valentine’s day. However, there are two places, which you might particularly like. The first one is Kampa – it’s the area on the left bank of the river Vltava, near the Lesser town – basically it is an island, as it’s separated from the Lesser Town by the so called “Devil’s stream.” It has a special atmosphere thanks to its lovely little lanes and proximity of the river. Also, this side of the river seems to be somewhat more quiet than the area on the other side, so it could be just the right place to go to, if you want to enjoy some moments with your significiant other.
If you’re still not too tired and you want to go for a little bit longer walk, you can come up the Malostranské (or Lesser Town) stairs and ascend to the Prague castle. The view from there is one of the best ones you can get in Prague and it will take you a few minutes to feast your eyes on it.
After that, it’s probably time for another meal. One romantic place, near the river, is called Grosseto Marina – well, it is actually situated on the river itself, as it’s on a big boat. This restaurant belongs to one of the best italian restaurants in Prague and apart from the good cuisine you’ll also enjoy the awesome view from here. Another option we would suggest is not far from here, just a few minutes from the river bank, near Staroměstská metro station. It’s called Mistral café and don’t bee fooled by the name: it’s actually not just a café, it is also a very good restaurant. Our tip: try their spinach risotto with baked mozarella, yum!
So, now you’ve had a long walk, nice dinner and it’s almost time to sleep. If you’re not feeling sleepy yet, you can still stroll through the centre a little bit and enjoy the magical atmosphere of Prague’s nights. And maybe you’ll be heading towards one of our apartments…Good night and enjoy the rest of your evening!
