My girl and I fell in love with this place three years ago. Since then, we visit here at least once when we're in Prague. Best Urquell outside of Plzen (and I'm worrying a master brewer here), and the food's awesome! If you can't handle sitting with other people at the table and striking up a conversation, this place ain't... More

Originally, I wrote a very lengthy description of the U Hrocha, waxing nostalgic about a bar I used to occasion in my younger years. But that was more about me, then what you really want to know. The bottom line is, if you are a tourist, most likely, you will not want to spend any time in this place, if... More

It's a Pub in a small street near the Prague Castle, not so many tables and seats, but you can join others. Truly Czech atmosphere and a great food.

If you are walking down from Prague Castle stop here for a cold mug of pilsner! Try their sausage and beer cheese as well. Bear is super cheap. They open at noon, best to get there early for a seat. You will not be disappointed.

We had a walk around st. Vitus and decided to go for some snack with beer. The feedback got us to find this place and it was totally worth it! The place with unique Czech atmosphere, tastiest beer, good food and good service. The bartender was very helpful. Whenever your beer is empty you get a new one without asking,... More

Who wants to try pub from old times it is place for him, or her :-) . You get Plzen and can enjoy staying in meter x meter pub with "natives" :-)

Staying in Hradcany & Letna

Neighborhood Profile
Hradcany & Letna
Your experience in Prague will never be complete if you do not see it from the top. Hillsides, stretched from the west to the north, provide spectacular views of greenish copper cupolas, narrow cobblestone streets, bridges connecting both river banks and green gardens from red-roof tops of centuries-old houses. Prague pulls you into its 1300 year old history. Walking up the hill or stairs to Prague Castle, the historical seat of Czech rulers and the majestic Saint Vitus Cathedral can leave you speechless (and out of breath). Luckily, plenty of terrace cafés overlooking gardens and beautiful parks are available to provide rest and a place to catch your breath again.
