Cafe Louvre

Bearing the name of the world-famous gallery, this institution has existed in Prague for over a century, since 1902. Among its patrons were Karel Capek, Franz Kafka as well as Albert Einstein during his professorship in Prague. The café’s business was interrupted by force in 1948 by the communist coup when all of its furnishings were thrown out of the windows onto Národní Avenue below. This cultural melting pot was revived in 1992 when the devastated premises underwent a complete reconstruction.
