City Escapes Czech Republic Europe

Alternative Places in Prague’s Letna Area/ District 7

‘Ahoj’ and welcome to a new piece on Prague, this time from the Letna District or as it’s called on maps, District 7. (Which sounds a little like The Hunger Games but hey, I never went hungry here.)

I’ll admit it – I was inspired to write this piece and to go discover this area as I’d found this Prague blog page….  http://www.tasteofprague.com/pragueblog/pragueblog/prague-walk-letna-holesovice

This area lived up to its name! I’d read that it was a little more grungy, alternative and ‘hip’ compared to other more traditional areas in Prague and I knew it’d be the perfect choice to escape those pesky Prague tourists.

Letna Park Beergarden

I was staying in District 1 (in the old town) and it was a really close walk to Letna Park. Head towards Letna and in about 10 minutes you’ll be in the park with a beautiful beer garden.

Bio Oko

From here, I typed Bio Oko into Google and followed my way there. I knew I wanted to see this place because I’d heard they had good coffee and that the space was cool. It’s actually an arthouse cinema which turns into a bar at night.

I was lucky to be the only one sipping on coffee while there which meant I could take plenty of photos.

District 7 is worth seeing as it’s more ‘local’ and gives you a total breath of fresh air away from the madness of the Old Town.

Complete elation when I stumbled across this store! What a find 🙂 The girl working in the shop was really friendly, spoke perfect English and helped me by writing down some other places I could visit in the area. https://www.facebook.com/KristynaJakobyJavurkova/

This is why I always chat to locals in shops and cafes and restaurants. They always have the best recommendations.

This was on the handwritten recommendation note which I had received at the previous store. This store is a joint venture between 10 designers and artists who make everything from jewellery, to clocks to clothing and eyewear. Wow. It was a visual delight!
