3. Dox

The buzzy contemporary-arts center that opened in October 2008. One of the first exhibits in this sprawling 1920’s metal factory (redesigned by the contemporary Czech architect Ivan Kroupá) was the enormous installation called Entropa, by Czech artist David Cerný. A 40-foot-high mosaic suspended on a pipe system, with steam whistles ... More

5. Grand Café Orient

The café is on the second floor of the House of the Black Madonna, originally constructed in 1912 as a department store by the Czech Cubist architect Josef Gocár and, as of 2003, home to Prague’s Museum of Czech Cubism, an architectural and design movement that emerged, flourished, and faded away here in the course of about 15 years.... More

A 1904 neo-Renaissance-style building has been meticulously transformed into the modern, luxury Hotel Kings Court, situated on Republic Square across from the Palladium shopping centre. The hotel includes 133 guestrooms, conference facilities, and a ballroom. The fuchsia accented Eating Point Cafe, with a summertime terrace, extends into the vodka... More

7. House of the Black Madonna (Museum of Czech Cubism)

The first Cubist building in Europe, the House of the Black Madonna is located in Old Town, its stark façade and geometric windows contrasting with the surrounding Baroque structures. Designed in 1912 by Josef Gočár, the building was named for a nearby polychrome statue of the Madonna and Child. Today, the house contains the Museum... More

La Degustation Bohême Bourgeoise (or Degustation, as it is known), was a revelation for Czechs as well as visitors to the city when it opened in Old Town in 2007. Executive chef and co-owner Oldrich Sahajdák assembled a nine-person team comprising some of Prague’s top internationally trained talent, variously poached from the city’s... More

9. Lobkowicz Palace Museum

The 16th-century Lobkowicz Palace underwent a multimillion-dollar restoration ending in 2007, returning the palace’s 60 rooms, including a handsome music salon that hosts daily concerts to their Baroque and Rococo opulence. Beneath its frescoed ceilings, the building holds a treasure trove of European cultural heritage: original scores of... More

The youthful staff is helpful to the point of exuberance. The spa is set in a former Cistercian monastery (with a transparent floor revealing Gothic ruins beneath); the restaurant serves both pan-European cuisine—including a delicious pata negra ham appetizer and lots of game—and Asian dishes.

11. Modernista, Prague

Janek Jaros has, for almost a decade, been championing Czech Cubism from his downtown gallery Modernista. Set somewhat incongruously among the treacly gift boutiques and garnet sellers along Celetná, a popular tourist road in Old Town, Modernista is Prague’s original Czech design emporium. The fortysomething Jaros manufactures reproductions... More

12. Qubus

The warmly lit and cheery space stocks traditional craft techniques made thought-provoking with healthy doses of irony.

Luxury hotelier Rocco Forte spread the 101 Cubist-inspired guest rooms at his latest property throughout seven historic buildings in central Prague. The results are a testament to how an international hotel brand can achieve an authentic sense of place in one property. Few European hotels can match the Augustine, with its still-active... More
