 DOMUS HENRICI design hotel, Prague
At night, after the tourists have all moved down the hill and the spotlights have iluminated St. Vitus Cathedral, a heavy calm settles on Hradcany, and the area is transformed into one of the most peaceful places you can imagine.
The Castle became the seat of the president of the Republic in 1918, but large sections were closed to the public during the years of communist domination.
The paranoia of the era gave rise to fears that counter-revolutionaries might use the passageways, so the exits were hastily blocked off with concrete slabs.

 The Prague Post Online: Restaurant Guide
Never, until I dined at the Restaurant Hradcany, had I been served a dish covered with a breast-shaped silver dome which, seized by its nipple, was whisked ceremoniously away to reveal the steaming creation beneath.
The do-it-yourself cappuccino arrived as two tiny cups of rich espresso with a separate dainty pitcher of frothy foamed cream.
Although it's true that the food would have been just as delicious without the silver domes and elaborate presentation, the pomp and formality of the service at Restaurant Hradcany are more than mere show; the attention to detail is a reflection of quality that's carried through from the service to the kitchen.
