Cafe Imperial

Jewel of architecture in Prague. This place has been attracting visitors since 1914. There you can order buffet style breakfast, American or English breakfast, continental or French style breakfast. Lots of options to choose from! And, don’t forget to take pictures, this cafe is a perfect spot for Instagram!

Cafe Savoy

This cafe features an unusual interior, which emphasizes the preserved monumental ceiling in neo-Renaissance style, with a story dating back to 1893. Their own bakery offers fresh confectionery and bakery products daily.

Five different types of breakfasts in a price range between 245 ($11.80) and 435 Korunas ($21). Yes, it is pricey for budget travelers, but you can get a cup of coffee only to enjoy the environment and beautiful interior design.

WHAT TO DO IN PRAGUE IN 2 DAYS – WALK THROUGH THE MOST PHOTOGENIC AND INSTAGRAM WORTHY SPOTS

In our opinion, there is no shortage of stunning spots in Prague where you can take really cool pictures. You just need to come to certain places at the right time and when the light is at its best. In Prague, you don’t need to spend hours on finding your perfect corner, but we still want to share a few of our favorite places for taking the best pictures and enjoying the atmosphere.

Side note: If you are thinking to visit Prague in winter, there is a guide written on this topic too.

Terrace U Prince

It’s one of the best rooftop restaurants in the world which offers an absolutely spectacular view of the city in all directions. The food is fancy, drinks are yummy, and with a partially covered terrace you can enjoy the place any time of the year. The only disadvantage of this place is that it may get too crowded and touristy, but you will still enjoy and be able to take lots of amazing photos.

City View Terrace at Starbucks Pražský Hrad

Comparing to Terrace at U Prince hotel, Terrace at Starbucks is cheaper and way less crowded (you actually don’t need to order anything at all if you don’t feel like it). And it’s so easy to get to!

Charles Bridge

I don’t think I need to say much about this historical spot. Probably everyone knows where this bridge is. However, the best time to go there is early morning, before the sunrise. In this case, you’ll be almost alone.

Petrin Hill 

The hill is in the park. To get there you can take a funicular or walk. 

Views are amazing from the hill, but if you feel you are ready for more then there is a tower nearby. Climbing 299 steps will bring you to a magnificent view. The walk to the tower and up the stairs can be a bit hard on your legs. But if you look at it as exercise then additionally to a view you’ll get a workout.
