The famous Prague Café Slavia, across from the National Theatre, on the corner of Národní třída and Smetanovo nábřeží, is the symbol of the café culture. It was opened in 1884 and is today furnished in the art deco style. It is a popular place with intellectuals, poets, actors and various artists. The former Czech President, Václav Havel, used to go there. The large windows let you enjoy the view of the National Theatre, the Vltava River and Prague Castle, and Charles Bridge, directly from your table. There is both a restaurant and pub there. It is open daily, year-round, from 8 a.m., and a professional pianist performs there every evening.
