The Vintage Guide to Prague: Cafe Slavia

Cafe Slavia

Well, what is it? The quintessential Prague cafe experience complete with castle views and a pianist.
And where is it?Perfectly placed next to the grand sweep of the Vltava River, Cafe Slavia and the National Theatre decided to take a seat next to each other in 1884. The idea was to give theatre goers somewhere chic to have an espresso and dust the snow off their furs before curtain up.
When was its heyday? In the 1920s, Slavia had an art deco facelift that has lasted till this day and the tables were jam packed with poets and philosophers.
Whose company will I be in?The dear Mr President Vaclav Havel was a regular in his playwright days and along with a list of Czech luminaries.
Why do ladies still lunch there? For world class people watching (and tram spotting), around dark circular tables and to the sound of tinkling ivories.
What should I wear?A clouche hat and a drop waist, twenties style.
