We walked into the lively Na břehu Rhôny (Na Hrobci 1, Prague, Czech Republic) for a glass of wine because it was right next door to our Airbnb in Prague, and everyone inside was obviously having a good time. Spying an empty table in a crowded room, we sat down and waited for a waitress.... [Continue]
