The historic city of Prague has many secrets hidden between its medieval cobbled streets that are more likely to be stumbled upon accidentally than discovered by following the well-beaten tourist tracks.
Here, Culture Trip lists the places travellers should visit in Czechia’s capital for a unique experience.
During its post-Communist years, Prague saw the springing up of many daring contemporary artists. David Černý, for instance, has stunned the world with strange and awe-inspiring sculptures such as the gigantic babies climbing the Žižkov Television Tower. Černý opened MeetFactory, which combines art exhibitions, workshops, theatre and musical performances that showcase Czechia’s alternative art scene.
Especially dedicated to Czech national food and offering a 14-course tasting menu, La Dégustation Bohême Bourgeoise, located in Prague’s Old Town, takes its food inspiration from a 19th-century cookbook the manager found in a junk shop. The restaurant is therefore delightfully authentic and offers dishes such as třeboň catfish with kefir, poppy seeds and dill, or mnetěš pigeon with elderberry and hazelnuts.
