Whether traveling on a romantic getaway to the City of a Hundred Spires or on an epic family getaway to the Czech Republic’s capital, there’s a reason Prague is world-renowned for incredible architecture and history.


For foodie families, Instagram photogs or culture seekers looking for a beautiful meal with a matching view, you’re in luck. Prague boasts both. Take in the sprawling, varied cityscape and views of burnt-orange spires poking through the horizon from the comfort of a fine-dining establishment with this list of world-class restaurants, all offering some of the best views and meals in the city.


Rooftop dining in Prague is a must, but your family would be hard-pressed to find one offering views like U Zlate Studne, or the Golden Well, at the Golden Well Hotel. Walk around town and take a break from the city streets with a bird’s eye view of town below. Located in Lesser Town, also known as Malá Strana and a must-visit on its own, this restaurant boasts international cuisine and 360-degree views.


Located in Old Town Square, Hotel U Prince’s rooftop dining, Terasa U Prince, is open year-round and offers sophisticated style, impeccable service, high-end cuisine and some of the best views in the city. This restaurant is well known with tourists and locals alike and can completely elevate your dining experience in the city — literally.

Located on the rooftop of InterContinental Prague, Zlatá Praha Restaurant is the perfect stop for a breathtaking sunset with the family. Enjoy a happy hour cocktail (or two) and a view for miles, or stick around for a world-class dining experience, reservations recommended. Get a sneak peek of the view here.


On the 66th floor of Tower Park, Oblaca Restaurant’s floor-to-ceiling windows showcase the city from incredible heights. No matter the weather outside, you can enjoy a warm meal inside with views to spare.


While hotel rooftops and high-rise restaurants offer an immersive experience in the heart of the city, this one is a more unique perspective on the outskirts of town. Take a short ride up Petrin Hill by funicular for an exceptional meal at Nebozizek, but be sure to make a reservation as this one is a local favorite. Take in the city from a short distance away from your own hillside table, including menu options showcasing Czech specialties.

How to Find the Best Gelato (And Spot the Fake Stuff) on Your Travels Through Rome

Rome is a city full of musts for visitors. You must visit the Colosseum, the Trevi Fountain, the Spanish Steps. And the list goes on, all the way down to trying gelato. No trip to Rome would be complete without the obligatory sweet treat, and for good reason. Gelato is delicious, refreshing and it comes in every flavor you can imagine. But while you can find it just about everywhere you turn in the Eternal City, it’s important to know not all gelatos are created equal. The city is brimming with fakes, and once you know how to tell the difference, not only will you see the fake stuff everywhere, but you will also refuse to settle for less than authentic.
