You know, Prague has this thing with alchemists, Rudolf II and all the bizarre experiments from the 16th century. Were you ever interested in how to create gold from a random piece of stone? Giving life to a clay monster named Golem that would do anything according to the master’s wish (FYI, the full legend here)? How about inventing the elixir of immortality? Sounds catchy, I know, so don’t be shocked when you meet another hundred people on the “authentic tour” through the mysteries and magic of the old city. OR you can just avoid all this touristic nonsense and go to smaller, forgotten but still really nice places instead, such as the cute bar Kellyxír.
Although it’s located in the city centre near the castle and all the main attractions, in the evening there are basically no people or just a few Czechs chilling with their big beers after the whole day in the beautiful beer garden with an old iron cross and lots of ivy. It’s really atmospheric and with an interesting interior that interprets the topic in a very unique way.
You probably won’t find out the truth about mystical tricks here, but try their weirdly named cocktails such as “Magic Kiss of Anise”, “Angelic vision” or “Kelley Lava”. If you’re lucky enough, your drink will come smouldering – no worries, it’s just a piece of dry ice. Or is it?
