The Locals' Guide to Prague

Six Prague insiders, including two designers, an Olympic athlete and a tech entrepreneur, guide you to their favourite spots in the city.

Božena Řežábová

The Tech Entrepreneur

Božena Řežábová

Before launching Gamee, the first social network for gamers, Božena Řežábová was at Google, overseeing YouTube launches and other projects around the Czech Republic. The mother of two boys describes Prague as a playground for tech talent. “Foreign companies are investing here, and a lot of bright people are working in start-ups.” Having lived in Paris, Dublin and New York, Řežábová enjoys the peace and quiet of Prague for productive brainstorming.


Miminoo

“Miminoo is more than a restaurant serving Czech and Italian food. In summer, there’s outdoor minigolf as well as a picnic area with swings and seating on the grass; in winter, the space is transformed into an ice-skating rink. It’s a great place for families. The adjacent Tower Park Prague even has sculptures of giant babies crawling up the building.”

Café Savoy

Café Savoy

“For a business meeting, take your colleague to the Savoy, but reserve ahead as the place is busy. It’s got Old World atmosphere, with historic wooden interiors and an ornate cast-plaster ceiling from 1893. Watch patisseries being made in the bakery downstairs through a glass wall from the main floor. I always order the Sachertorte.”

Peter’s Apartment

Peter’s Apartment

“As the name suggests, this café/bar has a homey feel. The atmosphere is young and creative, and the interior decoration is funky, with a geometric-print floor and different sayings scrawled on chalkboards, like “Drink coffee, do stupid things faster with more energy.” I’m a morning person and this is where I go to brainstorm.”

Stromovka

Stromovka

“I spend a lot of free time with my sons riding our bikes at Stromovka, the largest city park, which dates back to the 13th century when it was a royal game reserve. You can easily spend a day exploring the peaceful grounds, from the planetarium to the duck pond. I recently noticed outdoor workstations where people bring their laptops – a brilliant idea if you’re travelling and want to experience the city while working.”
