The building has an impressive appearance, worth seeing. The cafe on the second floor offers a gorgeous view of the plaza. They have a great selection of various deserts and coffee drinks. However, service is mediocre and not very friendly. The vegetarian sandwich took about...More

We went there to try the fancy cakes that caught our eyes in the window. It was a huge disappointment. The service was extremely unorganized. There were like 10 people waiting in the door in that tiny place, waiter should instruct people to wait outside...More

Stare Mesto (Old Town)
One of the oldest neighbourhoods in town represents
the medieval heart of Prague. It’s no surprise it is
bustling with tourists every time of day. Križovnický
square, overlooking Charles Bridge with Prague Castle
in the background, is probably the most beautiful
square in the city. Its unique historical atmosphere
of gothic houses and churches, cobblestone streets and
squares, and stone towers blend together with the
