1012/2 Smetanovo Národní, Prague, 11000, Czech Republic

One of the city’s most celebrated cafés, Slavia opened in 1881 and soon became a gathering place for artists and intellectuals, including Franz Kafka and former president Václav Havel. Today, the café retains a 1930’s Art Deco design, with tapered light fixtures and large windows framing views of the Charles Bridge, Prague Castle, and National Theatre. On one wall hangs Viktor Oliva’s most famous painting, The Absinthe Drinker. The café is known for its coffees and cakes as well as its extensive breakfast menu and home-style Czech specialties, such as baked duck with sour cabbage and potato dumplings.
