Excellent, fascinating tour. In addition to showing us some beautiful buildings and spaces, Lenka did a great job of tying the Cafe Culture into the history and politics of Prague and the Czech Republic. She also gave us an excellent explanation of how Prague developed and evolved as a city.
This was a really special tour with Katerina. She is a gem! We very much enjoyed learning about some of the contemporaries of Kafka who frequented Prague's cafes. It was extra special to visit the cafes they spent time in: Cafe Savoy and Cafe Slavia. Katerina's poetry readings in both cafes were unforgettable.
We thought this would entail eating some recommendations of pastries which was not the case at all. Consequently, we felt a bit awkward walking thru several Cafes without patronizing the establishment. Also, one of the emphasis by our docent was on exterior architecture and since we didn’t leave Cafe Savoy until dark, it was very difficult to appreciate the aesthetic of the architecture. Seems the tour would be better suited to daylight hours.
