Out & About

Prague Business Travel Guide - - Front Page -

to note the im­por­tance of Prague’s im­pend­ing Smart City project which - while be­ing aimed pri­mar­ily at the city’s res­i­dents - will also spill over to busi­ness travel vis­i­tors and in­deed tourists. By go­ing more green and smart, it will not only fa­cil­i­tate more ef­fi­cient trav­el­ling be­tween des­ti­na­tions, but will also com­pound the city’s ap­peal as a clean and for­ward-think­ing area.

Such a mod­ern way of think­ing is noth­ing new for Prague, how­ever. As a rule, the city has al­ways been able to find a bal­ance be­tween lev­er­ag­ing its his­tor­i­cal as­sets, and boost­ing its more di­lap­i­dated ar­eas to meet con­tem­po­rary ex­pec­ta­tions.


An ex­am­ple where both facets meet is through its cul­tural of­fer­ing, with sig­nif­i­cant in­sti­tu­tions in­clud­ing the Na­tional Theatre, the Es­tates Theatre, Mu­nic­i­pal House and more than 10 ma­jor mu­se­ums en­cap­su­lat­ing the best of Prague’s old and new.

Hun­dreds of concert halls, gal­leries, cin­e­mas and clubs line the streets and pro­vide im­me­di­ate es­capes from the board­room while on your trip.

The Fash­ion Arena Prague Out­let, Man­u­fack­tura and Ná­plavka Farm­ers Mar­ket serve as the city’s best re­tail ther­apy op­tions, while Prague Cho­co­late bridges the gap be­tween re­tail and food & drink as an in­dict­ment of the city’s most pop­u­lar down­time ac­tiv­i­ties. This is to say: its bars and restau­rants.

Wences­las Square is a great start­ing point as you veer over from cul­ture to re­lax­ation, and from there you will find an abun­dance of lav­ish, quirky, up­mar­ket or quaint din­ing and drink­ing out­lets for you to spend your evenings (or af­ter­noons too for that mat­ter, and if you have the time to spare).

On the restau­rant side, Port­fo­lio and Coda of­fer the per­fect set­ting for a tasty busi­ness meet­ing, while Iluze Bar and Atrium are among the best places to go should your de­ci­sion mak­ing be bet­ter with a drink in hand. Fi­nally, U Slo­van­ské Lípy is a must for any beer con­nois­seurs.
