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.
Katarina's tour of Prague's Cafe Society was a special treat. We had already enjoyed her architecture tour. But, her expertise includes intellectual and cultural history as well. Her cafe tour was not simply a food tour, though it included an introduction to Prague's cafe specialties. More important to us was the cultural history she provided, sharing anecdotes about and excerpts from the authors and poets who frequented the cafes we visited. I can't imagine a better experience than that provided by Katarina!
Marek was very personable, very relaxed, loaded with facts and information. Sensitive to our age. A fact sheet with the highlights of the tour would be most helpful.
