Saint Valentine's Day is approaching, and if you're still wondering how to surprise your sweetheart this year, get inspired!
Saint Valentine's Day is becoming part of Czech culture. Loving gazes, candlelit dinners and crimson hearts are everywhere. The atmospheric magical mood of Prague or South Moravia will enchant you and ring just the right bell.
The Municipal House is a renowned European Gem of Art Nouveau architecture. You are welcome to admire it, from the outside in. There, in the original period Art Nouveau French restaurant, a 5-course Valentine’s menu awaits. You can delight in oysters, tuna tartare, pumpkin cream, and veal medallions with wild mushroom sauce. Accompanying this fine venue is live piano music, naturally!
After dinner, you can take a romantic walk through wintry Prague via the Royal route over the Gothic Charles Bridge to Prague Castle, discovering, with your loved one, the secrets that Prague has to offer.
A Romantic dinner in Prague, with a view? But of course! You have a choice of places with truly gourmet views. The Žižkov TV tower is impossible to overlook, but not everyone knows of the romantic dinner venue in the tower itself. Restaurant Oblaca (sounds like the Czech for ‘poetic clouds’) nestles high above at 66 metres (216 feet). The wintry-lit metropolis at your feet is a glorious sight. Another – and no less romantic option – is the Golden Well restaurant Terasa u zlaté studně in the Lesser Quarter. A view to dispel all doubt that Prague truly has a hundred spires!
Chateau - status care for Body and Soul
A night at the Chateau! What can be more romantic than a 4-course dinner by candlelight, a four-poster bed and days full of relaxing in the wellness facilities? If that is an experience you’ve been hoping for, Chateau Mcely will fulfil your dreams. Enjoy the unique atmosphere of the Chateau, set in St George forest, and the gastronomic heaven of a restaurant Piano Nobile, which the Grand Restaurant 2014 independent guide has dubbed the absolute best restaurant in the Czech Republic.
Enchanting Rustic Romance
If you are more down-to-earth, and prefer the rustic to the city- or chateau luxury, you simply must not miss Café Fara in Klentnice near Mikulov in Southern Moravia. This stylish, non-smoking Café beneath the Pálava hills offers local and seasonal cuisine, excellent coffee and accommodation in newly-built rooms with unusual poetic names: The Jeweller’s Madonna room, the Apricot room or the Lavender apartment. Even inclement weather cannot dampen your spirits in Southern Moravia. Where better to celebrate the Feast of Love, than in a traditional South Moravian wine cellar!
