I went to the only cubist café in the world and it is located in Prague, Czech Republic. Prague is definitely one of a kind when it comes to architecture. The most famous Czech artist is Alfons Mucha, the best representative for the art style called liberty/art nouveau. This makes us understand the importance of art in Prague was in the first half of the 20th century. Prague is a jewel still today and that’s not a case that cubist art is what characterises it the most. Wherever you look, you understand how incredibly beautiful this city looks.
My friends know that I like peculiar places and that I love art and architecture, so I couldn’t miss he only cubist café in the world: Grand Café Orient. You can find it inside the building called U Černé Matky Boží and it is open everyday.
It is pretty easy to reach if you’re already in the Old Town: all you have to do, is walk approximately 450 meters, while the nearest underground station is called Náměstí Republiky.
I tried their unique cubist pastry (kubistický věneček) for 58 KČ (approximately 2,50€), another chocolate cake (I don’t remember the name, but I remember that it was delicious!) and coffee with cream. My mouth starts watering just thinking about it again!
The interiors are simply magical. It feels like you’re back in time, drinking coffee with the most famous cubist artists and from the original cubist cups. On the ground floor, you can see a small exhibition that feels like a museum. Trust me, if you go there, you will never regret it!
