Happy November! Summer has finally come to an end as the temperature has dropped and the leaves have changed to their bright orange and red hues. There's even snow in the mountains. We’ve selected the best indoor activities Prague has to offer for children, and their parents, to stay entertained and warm during these next chilly months. There are museums like Gallery of Steel Figures, which boasts giant hand-made sculptures made of recycled scrap metal that kids can climb over and in. The Museum of Senses, Illusion Art Museum and Karel Zeman Museum all provide an interactive platform for kids to learn about and question their senses, while Escape Rooms make the entire family put their logic and puzzle-solving skills to the test.

And just because it’s cold out doesn’t mean you have to wait for better weather to experience an active adventure – there’s Aquapalace, a massive water-park complex, or indoor sky-diving and surfing for those feeling particularly extreme. November 11th is Saint Martin’s Day, an annual Czech holiday revolving around the blessing of the first official wine of the new year and a delicious meal of roasted goose, dumplings and cabbage. St. Martin is a beloved Czech patron known for his extremely humble and compassionate character. The origin of the roasted goose tradition is unknown, but legends claim that St. Martin was so humble he hid from adoring fans in a goose pen until the geese made noise and gave him away. Others say

that as he gave a sermon the geese wouldn’t stop interrupting, so they eat goose during the festival as retribution. Either way, the young wine and delicious meals are the perfect way to welcome in the winter, signified by the white horse that St. Martin arrives on. We’ve also featured one of Prague’s oldest and most historical clubs, Roxy. With the end of Communism in 1992 there was an explosion of nightlife and cultural growth in Prague. Roxy was an integral part of this era, beginning as a run-down venue for wild rock concerts and quickly evolving into the cultural epicenter that it is today. Enjoy the chilly weather this November and don’t forget to like us on Facebook and Instagram!

“Our restaurant descends from an era when celebration of life, culture, luxury, open mindedness, hospitality and happiness all put together were a must. We the two brothers at K have designed the décor of the restaurant in the spirit of what Kapurthala , a European holiday retreat could have looked like. K’s modernity is expressed through its ambience, music and fashionable spirit.”

THINGS OUR TOP PICKS OF THINGS TO DO this month

pokoje 2018 friday, november 9 Sunday, november 18 Pokoje, or Room, showcases the contemporary work of young artists from different Czech art universities. The art is site-specific, it is created within the space you view it, in the weeks before the show. This year’s theme is “Echo,” which is explored by the artists through the use of the architecture and character of the rooms their installation resides in, making every piece incredibly unique and innovative. Through this exhibition Pokoje allows young artists to explore non-gallery showcases and the incredible spaces that open up when an artist is not confined to a set, cohesive space. The installations are interactive and accompanied by performances and workshops. Campus Hybernská Hybernská 4, Prague 1

*Winter EDITION

Mind-bending Museums Museum of Senses is one of Prague’s newest museums and already a favorite with locals and visitors alike since opening its doors a year ago. The museum’s unique exhibits connect to different historical aspects of Prague. You can enter a light room and observe an optical illusion of Einstein, a one-time resident of the city, or you can explore the still intact stable room from when the building was an 18th century palace. From optical illusions, to activities testing the five senses and puzzles visitors must figure out, many of the museum’s installations require more than one participant, so kids experience each exhibit together simultaneously. Not only is it entertaining and educational for children, but the psychedelic and mind-boggling nature of the installations entice even adults to question their senses and perceptions! Just up the street in Staroměstské náměstí (Old Town Square) you can also visit IAM Prague, the Illusion Art Museum. The museum “brings to life all the historical techniques of creating illusions in art,” even exploring modern-day selfie culture and social media with installations you can touch and alter. Just like Museum of Senses, IAM also connects exhibits to the Czech Republic with a permanent series rotating different works from local contemporary artists.

Heavy Metal Fun Gallery of Steel Figures boasts almost 100 handmade sculptures pieced together out of all recycled metal materials. The artworks, made of gears, chains, nuts and bolts, and other scrap metals, are massive and entirely hands-on – kids can climb all over the sculptures, inside the cars, hang out with the minions and even sit on the throne from Game of Thrones. The sculptures are inspired by famous actors and musicians, cultural icons from cartoons and sci-fi films, as well as politicians, animals, and different types of vehicles. The gallery even has a lifesize rendition of Bumblebee from the Transformers series. Located perfectly in the center of Prague at Wenceslas Square, this gallery gives scrap metal new life, transforming the pieces into interactive artwork that is entertaining for both children and adults.

Experience some movie magic Fun for young scientific minds Although the majority of this museum has a no-touch policy, the Merkur playroom makes the visit worth it for kids. Merkur is a Czechoslovakian metal construction set used for toy production that even helped Czech chemist Otto Wichterle create the first soft contact lenses. In the playroom, children can use the set and other contraptions to fuel their own imagination and technical skills. The rest of the museum boasts realistic displays of different tools from automotive, scientific, industrial and agricultural fields, including life-size historical cars and planes, old photography equipment and the development of mining technology. Although not interactive, these displays are still engaging for parents and children alike, and on November 17 you can visit the museum for only 50Kč!

This museum lets children explore the ground-breaking work of Czech film-maker, artist, and innovator Karel Zeman through handson installations of his animations and puppet-based films. The playful exhibit highlights the fantastical and whimsical nature of his creations, absorbing visitors into the set pieces so you find yourself in the air on a flying machine, operating a submarine, and even trying out the technical tricks that Zeman is famous for. It’s impossible to tell where the film set ends and reality begins, perfect for fueling your child’s imagination and altering perceptions.

Puppets have a long history in the Czech Republic going all the way back to the Middle Ages, paving the way for today’s elaborate puppet shows. The performances are engaging and beautifully crafted, and easy to understand for children of all ages even when not in English. The puppets of Theatre Spejble & Hurvínek were created in the 1920s by a Czech professor and quickly became household names throughout the country for their comedic and fantastical depictions of children’s fables and everyday life. Divadlo Říše loutek tells similar tales, including a version of Hansel and Gretel and even a story about the adventures of a doughnut who runs away. The National Marionette Theatre performs more classical pieces, such as Don Giovanni and the Magic Flute, entertaining for both children and adults.

Enjoy an adventurous escape

Indoor waterslides and wave pools

Although locking yourself into a small room with your kids may not sound like the best family outing, escape rooms provide the perfect environment for the family to bond through captivating and intellectually challenging puzzles. With Elixir Mystery, you’ll find yourself trapped in a 16th century torture chamber for attempting to steal King Rudolf’s secret elixir of youth. Your only chance to survive is to find the hidden underground passage to Rudolf’s castle. Clues and puzzles appear like spells in the chamber, guiding you and testing your ability to logically problem solve along the way. Professional film-makers and special effects crews made the entire experience visually and audibly captivating – you must use all your senses to solve these puzzles! Elixir Mystery not only tests your puzzle-solving skills, but also shares the history of the real King Rudolph II – a Czech king known for his massive impact on Prague architecture and passion for art, alchemy, magic, astronomy and other innovations. Mind Maze is similarly dedicated to the themes of their games, with multiple options including the Alchemist’s Chamber, Enigma, and their new state of the art escape room, Galactic Pioneers. In Pioneers, participants travel aboard a spacecraft for an interstellar mission that goes wrong. You must figure out the brain teasers and logic puzzles to save the mission, and the future of humanity! With uniquely designed props, active sensors and screens, and visual and audio effects, Mind Maze creates an immersive sci-fi experience that is captivating, challenging, surreal and fun for the whole family.

Aquapalace is the largest waterpark in Central Europe – needless to say there’s something for everyone. For kids, Water World provides invigorating water activities no matter the weather or season. Besides boasting the longest water slide in the Czech Republic, the park also has a wildwater river winding through the complex, an artificial wave pool, adrenaline-inducing water slides, a spacebowl where riders spin down to the water in a spiral and many other child-friendly attractions. While the kids experience the adventurous Water World, parents can escape to various more relaxing activities. Relaxation Palace offers whirlpools and massage benches while Sauna World has a selection of fourteen different types of saunas, from the classic Finnish style to the Russian sweating huts. The Spa and Wellness Center provides regeneration through massages, balneotherapeutic procedures, manicures, pedicures and other skin scare. Parents can also utilize the Fitness Center which offers everything from a large cardio zone to group exercises with experienced instructors. Although it is a bit far from the city center, you can easily get there via public transit. Just ride the red line to Opatov and take bus 328, 363, or 385 towards Čestlice, Aquapalace. There’s also a free Aquapalace shuttle for those with an Aquapalace bill or hotel key card.

PRAGUE

Cocktail guide The best cocktail bars in Prague (like the ones listed here) get pretty busy, even during the week. It's always good to make a reservation just to make sure you get a seat (even at the bar).

Le Valmont 9)

Uhelný trh 9, Praha 1 www.levalmont.cz The Michael Van Cleef Ault concept was inspired by the Miloš Forman movie of the same name, and is decorated in 18th-century French fashion with aubusson carpets, antique sofas, and massive crystal chandeliers. Reservations are all but required, since the 100-capacity lounge fills up fairly quickly. +420 224 267 266 for Reservations.

Black Angel's 8#

Staroměstské náměstí 29, Praha 1 www.blackangels.cz Nestled in a cozy cellar just across from the Old Town astronomical clock, Black Angel’s will put you in sensory overload. With high cellar ceilings, chandeliers, and ornate decor, it’s a lot to take in. +420 224 213 807 for Reservations.

Bar and Books 8%

Mánesova 64, Praha 2 and Týnská 19, Praha 1 www.barandbooks.cz Bar & Books is the first overseas extension of the famous New York family of bars, with two locations in Prague (the more casual in Mánesova and slightly more formal in Týnská). The bar evokes the feeling of a gentleman’s library. Dim lighting, heavy woods, ornately framed paintings and of course books (though mostly for visual aesthetics). Reservations online.

Bugsy's 9%

Industry 7*

www.bugsysbar.cz Bugsy’s is another bar with a great history, popping up just after the Velvet Revolution. Their one constant has been attention to detail and passion for good cocktails. Bugsy’s also loves their bubbly, and boasts over 130 brands of champagne and prosecco, as well as over 90 single malt whiskeys and 100 types of rum. +420 224 810 287 for Reservations.

www.industryprague.com Prague's newest venue is a London style club with shisha and tobacco and the highest quality sound systems playing the newest hip hop. Located right in the center of Prague, its worth a visit for sure! +420 736 606 612 for Reservations.

Pařížská 10, Praha 1

Tretter's 8@

V kolkovně 3, Praha 1 www.tretters.cz The Tretter family has been in the bar business for more than 90 years, so it’s no wonder this place feels like walking into a 1930’s Paris or New York cocktail bar. With soft lighting, classic decor and bartenders dressed the part in vintage cocktail jackets, the bar has become an institution. +420 224 811 165 for Reservations.

Parlour 8$

Bartolomějská 305, Praha 1 www.bonvivantsprague.com Bonvivant's CTC isn’t huge, but it’s cozy and has a cool 1950’s feel with mid-century wood furnishings, a pressed tin ceiling and a checkered floor.

Crazy Daisy 9(

Václavské náměstí 4, Praha 1 www.crazydaisy.cz Somewhat hidden at the bottom of Wenceslas Square, this one of our favourite new hotspots.

Karolíny Světlé 26, Praha 1 www.hemingwaybar.cz Chances are, if you’ve asked around, Hemingway's Bar has already been recommended.

Reservations are highly recommended. +420 773 974 764 for Reservations.

Cash Only Bar 8(

www.parlour.cz Maybe Parlour doesn’t want to be found – and that’s fine with us. The tiny little bar at the top of Wenceslas Square near the National Museum has a delightful speakeasy vibe to it, though it’s quickly becoming a popular secret. If you should luck out and discover the nearly unmarked entry, inside you’ll find an intimate, dimly lit bar with old jazz and R&B records playing and amazing craft cocktails served in antique glassware. +420 777 200 015 for Reservations.

www.cashonlybar.cz Just around the corner from its older sibling Hemingway’s, this little gem is making its own name with cocktails like Pin-Up Martini, made with passion fruit, vanilla and champagne. It’s an intimate bar, and they don’t take reservations. There’s also no smoking and, you guessed it—the bar doesn’t take credit cards. Oh, and by the way, they do serve amazing hot dogs.

L'Fleur 9$

www.lfleur.cz L’Fleur is just a few doors down from Tretter’s. Even before our first drink, we fell in love with the 1920’s feel of the interior, complete with a Mucha-inspired stained glass window towards the back of the bar. The signature drinks all come with their own history, which the bartender is always happy to explain. If you’re feeling a bit more bubbly, try a selection from L’Fleur’s expansive champagne list. +420 734 255 665 for Reservations

AnonymouS Bar 9# Michalská 12, Praha 1

www.anonymousbar.cz It’s nearly impossible to go into the AnonymouS Bar and not smile, the bar is clever at every turn. You can tell the bartender your likes and they’ll make suggestions, or choose from the secret drink menu printed in UV ink and read with a small blacklight. Reservations are taken only until 9pm. +420 608 280 069 for Reservations.

The roots of the playful, original musical group known as Hm… run as far back as 1994 when Marek Doubrava, the then guitarist of Tata Bojs, started to rehearse his own songs with his friend Viktor Ekrt. The band started to entertain the audiences of their jolly playful concerts under the assumed name of Hm… Alongside with their original material, Hm… has also used, from the start, poems by classical poets, Czech and international: Seifert, Orten, Wolker, Sova, Blatný, Apollinaire, and Rimbaud. Hm… often uses the instrument of music to change the topics, often serious, into an experience that reaches way beyond poetry. The band unveils spots that are “hidden between the lines”, underlines them with delicate arrangements and often just fools around. The ensemble has released four records so far: the debut …to by mohlo být zajímavé (2000), Oběd (2004), Plán na zimu (2008) and Klukoviny (2011). {+} 250 CZK Band, Blues, Folk, Rock, Jazz, Crossover, Energy, Musician

Serve the People focuses on language oppression and self-censorship. Language constitutes our knowledge, our way of thinking, and our identity. It tells us what is right and what is wrong. But what if the language itself is wrong? What if it tells us to do something we don’t want? Do we fool ourselves into believing it or do we fight against it? Maybe the answer isn’t that easy. It’s you that you’re fighting against. Adaptation

The life of Roxy

Roxy celebrates a long history of keeping Prague Inspired As the doors closed on Communism for Czechoslovakia in 1992, they swung wide open for a newly redefined nightlife in Prague. Venues like the now famous Roxy embodied the country’s new sense of freedom. Roxy may have marked its 26th anniversary last month, but the club’s history goes back much further than that. Beginning in 1927, the building housed an upscale cinema and cultural space for Prague’s high society. Located in a predominantly Jewish neighborhood, WWII brought an abrupt end to the area’s cultural life, and the building was vacant for a few years before being used as a state-run film school during the Czechoslovak Socialist Republic. After the Velvet Revolution and the subsequent collapse of the Communist regime the building fell into disrepair and was set to be demolished. However, the history of the building and the artistic aura it still possessed inspired Linhartova Nadace, or the Linhart Foundation, to use it as an impromptu concert venue. Founded in 1987 by a group of architects and artists, the Foundation aims to inspire and support creative projects in order to foster the creation of art among younger generations and the general public as a whole. They created Roxy in 1992 as a run-down venue for underground hardcore and rock concerts. The space then evolved into a cultural epicenter that

hosts the newest contemporaries of all types of music, from alternative and pop, to drum&bass and techno. The opening of the experimental space and café NoD, standing for No Dimension, in 1998 solidified Roxy’s status as one of Prague’s leading nightclubs and cultural hubs. Remembered as an integral part of Prague’s wild nineties, it is now a venue for those passionate about the connection between music and art, and all this relationship fosters. The massive flood of 2002 nearly put Roxy’s artistic renaissance on hold, however, when the venue was devastatingly flooded up to the second floor and forced to close for a month. Three years later the venue was once again shut down, this time by the city, due to noise complaints from residents in the area and the Prague 1 mayor. “Roxy is a legendary place, you can feel the history,” says Daniel Bacho, Roxy’s PR director. “We always try to be one step ahead of the rest, even when you consider communication with our fans, loyalty is key.” This loyalty is what has kept one of Prague’s oldest clubs alive all these years – in both closings, loyal supporters of Roxy’s mission fought for its repairs and re-opening. “Roxy is legendary not only as a venue in itself,” says Bacho. “But also in its attitude to music.” The previous Eastern Bloc countries tend to remain a few years behind when it comes to up-and-coming trends,

including new musical artists. Roxy refuses to adhere to this stereotype. Instead, the Roxy team travels around Europe looking for acts to book that will bring the best of international music scenes right here to Prague. “Events happening in Berlin, London, Barcelona etc. – it’s all happening here as well, which is special for the middle of Europe,” says Bacho. “We invest in new artists and styles. It’s a gamble, but usually it’s worth it.” Just last month Roxy sponsored Belgian drum&bass artist Netsky to perform in a farmers’ market. This pop-up set gained over 250,000 views. It’s risks like this that put Roxy at the forefront of Prague’s alternative arts and nightlife scene. The space itself has been renovated back to its pre-war glory. The Art Deco architecture of the 1920s cinema and its balcony were restored in effort to highlight and respect the history of the space, all while packing it full with new sound and modern culture. While NoD upstairs functions as an exhibition, theatre and lecture space, Roxy also doubles as a gallery with a rotating collection of paintings and sculptures on display throughout the actual concert venue. “Take the venue seriously as not just a club, but also a gallery space” says Bacho. “Walk around, sit for a while, you can feel it.”

Photo by Otta Seemann By Charlotte Spaeth This is a very special time of year for Slovakia and the Czech Republic, as the countries commemorate the anniversary of the founding of Czechoslovakia and the Velvet Revolution. The end of October concluded the celebration of 100 years since the founding of Czechoslovakia. The collapse of the Hapsburg empire after World War I prompted the rise of a democratic Czechoslovakia under the leadership of the country’s founder and first president, Tomáš Garrigue Masaryk. Prague celebrated this historic anniversary with a series of free and fun events that took place 42

throughout the last weekend of October, ending with a fireworks display that could be seen from all over the city. The display began at 19:18, the year of Czechoslovakia’s founding, and lasted for ten minutes. Even though the weather was rainy and full of fog, the fireworks still drew an impressive crowd of enthusiastic viewers from around the world. On Saturday October 27th,, a video-mapping presentation was projected on the front of The National Museum to celebrate its reopening after seven years of renovation. The display included significant images from the history of Czechoslovakia throughout the last 100 years,

THE PRAGUE VISITOR | November 2018

including the Prague Spring and invasion by the Soviet Union, and photographs of cultural icons. The weekend also included a concert in Old Town Square by Czech and Slovak artists including performances from Karel Gott, rapper Mjik Spirit and more. Gott is considered the most famous artist to come out of Czechoslovakia in the normalization period of the 1960’s. He was one of the only artists of the era accepted by the Communist regime as he rose to great fame across Central, Eastern and Western Europe.
