Prague in winter has its unique charm. You can experience that magic by walking beneath the snowy rooftops and chimneys of Lesser Town and Hradcany, ice skating on ponds and cross-country skiing in forest parks, or settling in by a pub fireplace with mulled wine. These inviting spots around Prague offer winter loveliness both inside and out and make for a lovely snowy day outing.
- Jansky vrsek. Walking through the romantic lanes and corners of the mysterious neighborhood Jansky Vrsek in Lesser Town and finish with a meal or drink by the open fireplace at the tavern U sedmi Svabu – Seven Cockroaches with a truly medieval atmosphere. The whole hangout is immersed in darkness, illuminated only by bursts of flames from the fireplace and candles.
- Novy Svet. In the picturesque and bohemian style neighborhood, Novy svet (New World), under the massive baroque walls of the Castle District (Hradčany) there is a hidden treasure: the only timbered house with a shingle roof, U Raka – Crayfish. The name of the house comes from the number of crayfish in the Brusnice brook which formerly flowed through here and is hidden in underground pipes today. Behind the door there is a narrow courtyard and even the small cafe in the mountain chalet style with a crackling fire in the fireplace.
- Kampa Island. Near the site called Prague Venice it would be a mistake to miss the homey local fast food windowBruncvik. You can order here one of the best mulled wines in Prague and a fantastic BBQ sausage to be eaten by the fire in the grate. The most beautiful atmosphere prevails here on Christmas Eve, when artists sing carols under the arch of the Charles Bridge. At the end of the Kampa Island the ancient wheel of baroque Mill Huť still turns around in the Certovka channel. Cross the footbridge and find yourself inside the mill, where you will be surprised by the cozy Mlynska kavarna
- Stromovka. While hiking snowy Stromovka Park it is always nice to stop at Šlechtovka. The original neo-gothic summer residence has been unfortunately waiting to be repaired for a long time, but has been replaced with a little wooden pub. There is nothing like buying a hot wine on a frosty day and lingering outside by the campfire to enjoy the crisp air.
