Out & About
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.
KREJBICHOVÁ GOES ON
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.
