About Suzana J
Lives in Prague, Czech Republic
Since Oct 2014
25-34 year old female
I am a Bohemian with my body and soul. I grew up in Czech Republic and I am living in Prague for more than 4 years now. And I love it. Hanging out with my friends on the river bank and drinking beers, watching sunset behind Prague castle, listening to a concert at the same time. Simple perfection. I enjoy good food, drinks and picnics in the parks, theaters, art galleries and partying with my friends. Thanks to them I always know what places have just popped out and which are great to check out. My favorite destinations are Barcelona for its lifestyle and Leuven in Belgium for its atmosphere (and beers:-) but Prague, Prague is my home.

This medieval heart of Prague bustles with tourists. No wonder — Old Town Square, the astronomical clock, the churches and the cobble stone side streets are so charming that it would almost be a crime not to walk around and soak up the history.
Mistral Cafe is very popular among locals for its light and airy interior, great service and delicious food, ranging from Czech to international cuisine. Located near to Old Town Square, it provides an excellent stop for a snack or a drink any time of day. This place is family friendly and the prices are friendly, too.
Letná Park is on a hillside, providing spectacular views of Prague's Old Town. It is a great place to visit especially in the summer. The locals come here in the afternoon after work to enjoy the views, drink beers, eat take-away sausages and chat with their friends. If you brought your running shoes, this is definitely the place for jogging!
A boat trip on the Vltava river in the evening is an excellent way to see Prague's best sights illuminated at night. The rides usually start at Dvořákovo nábřeží and go to Vyšehrad and back. There are plenty of providers to choose from.
The original seat of Czech kings — and now, Czech presidents — is a beautiful complex of palaces, churches, towers and gardens offering splendid views over the city. Saint Vitus Cathedral will leave you speechless and the tiny houses on Golden lane will give you a shimmering sense of its centuries-old history.
Malá Strana has many great restaurants, but this one is special. Conveniently located in the arcade of Malostranský Square, Malostranska Beseda offers delicious Czech cuisine, the best Czech beers and great views of Saint Nicholas Church.
Mala Strana is my favorite area of Prague. Beautiful cobble stone streets will take you to hidden gardens and palaces, while cozy restaurants and cafes will soothe your body and soul. Kampa Park offers a great deal of greenery and is a popular place for locals and students to hang out.
Originally a mill by the river and nowadays a neat little art space and home to a unique collection of modern Central European Art. If you love work by František Kupka, this place is a heaven.
The most iconic (and unfortunately, the most crowded) place in Prague, Charles Bridge is a beautiful stone bridge with sculptures from the 14th century, with a tower on each side. Křižovnický Square on the Old Town side is probably the most beautiful square in Prague. I always have to stop and take a look at the tower, Charles's statue, the bridge and Prague Castle in the background.
This traditional café has a history spanning more than a hundred years, and its famous guests have included Franz Kafka, Karel Čapek and Albert Einstein. The café has preserved its ambiance, with a functionalist-style salon and a terrace, perfect in the summer, and here you can enjoy delicious food, an amazing interior and great service for a surprisingly low price.
Lucerna Arcade is one of the hidden passages near Wenceslas Square. It contains a remarkable historical cinema and a cafe on the top floor, while in the basement you can find an amazing music club, a fun night spot! During the day, just walk through the arcade, check out the provocative sculpture of Saint Vaclav sitting backwards on a horse, and then end up on a different street on the other side. The passages can take you almost everywhere. I love them.
With its art nouveau houses lining the almost 700 meter long boulevard, this is the cultural and shopping heart of Prague. The statue of Saint Vaclav is the famous meeting point where all the adventures start.
Riegrovy Sady, perched on a hill above the National Museum and Wenceslas Square, offers a plesant escape into greenery, overlooking the city center with Prague Castle in the background. Amazing for hanging out with friends, playing frisbee, picnics and relaxing with drinks.
Visiting the National Theater is a true cultural and artistic experience, and not only for the performance you are about to see, but because it represents the Czech will for independence. After the fire in the second half of the 19th century, the Czechs collected money for its renovation. And the result is beautiful: Golden rooftops, an amazing interior with paintings by Mikoláš Aleš and a curtain painted by Vojtěch Hynais.
