Walking slowly up some early 20th century stairs, the atmosphere that strikes you is Paris, movies, romance and early 20 th century it-people feeling. At the time modern and hip and today yet again modern and new.
It is said that celebreties as Einstein and Kafka were here but this doesn´t need to be said since the feeling is like walking into a movie anyway, making the most humble tourist feel like a star.
For the smokers Prague is different. I prefer that people don´t smoke inside, but when walking into Cafe Louvre, I don´t mind that there still is a smoking side in the restaurant. It just adds to the already great atmosphere.
The Cafe Louvre is a cafe with waiters. They are dressed properly and quickly serves us the ten minute cava we have time for. Me and my travel mates Daniella and Nicoline is on a schedule. We have to try the cava, and fast. Stefan, the guide we have with us tell us that it is expensive, so a bottle is out of the question. When we get the bill we almost laught out loud of surprise. 60sek or 7- 8 dollars for 3 glasses of cava. For a Swede, nothing! And with this atmosphere included in the price, basically free.
The pink atmosphere is contagious and we giggle for a while before running from the place. Pleased to have seen a bit of history. Pleased to have experienced some romance without our husband and boyfriends.
ADDRESS – Národní 22, Praha 1, 110 00. Old town.
