An Easy Weekend In Prague - Sunday PM: Wenceslas, Communism and Cafés


My final Prague stroll takes in two charming cafés, with a brief look in at the Communism Museum in between. At Wenceslas Square stands Cafe Europa, part of Hotel Europa, that has a very well-preserved art nouveau interior.


Brief look at Communism
From here I visit the Communism Museum and find some idealistic posters of the time, including one that advertises a clothes shop. The advertisement says, "For sun and water - well equipped by our shops."


Café Stop
The second café stop is at Kavarna Obecni Dum, which is part of the Municipal House. This time we're in beautiful art deco territory. A lovely interior, once more, to elevate the simple pleasure of a high tea.







The Birdy Song
The final stop of the trip is U Fleku. It's very popular with tourists, but not without reason. They brew their own delicious beer for starters, in fact beer has been brewed on the site for over 500 years - so certainly a classic that has stood the test of time, and some. It would be churlish not to imbibe some of that heritage. The beer, the smoking and communal tables make for a lively atmosphere and help the cosmopolitan crowd to meld to the extent that an impromptu rendition of the Birdy Song breaks out. Is there a more fitting end to an easy weekend in Prague?
