Perched on an incomparable river location just across from the National Theatre, Kavárna Slavia is the oldest café in Prague, dating all the way back to 1881. The views across the river afforded from this historic Art Deco café are, in a word, major. The cake and coffee may not be the best in town, but Kavárna Slavia is certainly worth stopping in just to see the space and the amazing location.
