A Prague café that has already been attended by Albert Einstein

Café Louvre in Prague is one of these rare combinations of good and cheap. I confess I was much more interested in knowing the place because I had read that Einstein used to attend it during the time he used to live in Prague, but it’s really a place worth stoping by while taking a break of the wanderings around town! Today, it’s a popular meeting point for locals. It’s on the second floor of a building and the entrance is quite discreet. As we can we wonder by the name, it has a quite Parisian décor inside. The atmosphere is interesting and with good options for a coffee, tea or hot chocolate in the late afternoon. It’s also famous for its pastries and cakes! For those who want to have lunch there, they also serve specialties of Czech cuisine

Opened in 1902, it preserves the style of the establishments that existed during the Austro-Hungarian Empire. Seen as a bourgeois institution, it was closed during the Communist era and reopened only in 1992. After visiting the numerous attractions and walking a lot around Prague, nothing better than stoping by later in the day for relaxing in a historical atmosphere! It’s from open Monday to Friday from 8 a.m. to 11:30 p.m. and on weekends from 9 a.m. to 11.30 p.m.
