This pub is one of the last real old pubs in the center of Prague. They can offer you really good beer and mainly perfect atmosphere. Only disadvantage is, that it is only small chance to sit there, and usually you will neet to stand....More

This place is a must visit. I stopped in here every time I'm in Praha. It is a great example of a traditional Czech Hospoda that has maintained it's authentic touch. You will find tourists here but also many locals. The food is simple and...More

They have very good beer and typical czech snacks. I love topinky with niva. The waiters are very unfriendly and rude. This pub has atmosphere. I like it :)

Cute, very old pub. In recent years, more and more dishes. If you do not go there at noon you can sit among the locals. Around noon the crowded tourists. Low-priced pub, traditional service, which is a little grumpy, but it should be a "tradition"...More

Great location in the neighborhood of the Prague Castle. Do not expect some fancy restaurant and haute cuisine or all the time smilling staff. This pub is about something different. About its long history, unique atmosphere, typical Czech pub food. Actually, U Černého vola doesn't...More

We called in for a beer while waiting for the girls to get ready for a night out. We expected a fairly frosty welcome because we were tourists, and this is very much a locals pub. We weren't disappointed by how frosty the welcome was!...More

I first visited Prague back in the communist era when it was a fairy-tale city filled with wonderful bars. You didn't need to order anything in these bars as there was only one thing on the menu - beer! If you sat down at one...More

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.
