The Prague Four Seasons: Timeless & Elegant






Once the hub of the Holy Roman Empire, Prague is a city rich with history, culture and architecture. Towering, shimmering spires loom over winding cobbled streets, where gothic churches jostle for space with neo-classical townhouses. In the heart of Prague's Old Town, with views over the beautiful Vltava River and the historic Charles Bridge, lies the luxurious Four Seasons Hotel Prague, united by three historic buildings, from the Renaissance, Classical and 18th-century Baroque periods. Pierre-Yves Rochon re-modelled the hotel’s rooms, suites and lobby in 2012, updating Frank Nicholson’s original design, reflecting the classic Four Seasons ambiance – timeless and elegant with rich woods, marble floors and a vast and ornate lobby, complemented by lovely flourishes including decorative cornices, tromp l’oeil finishes and crafted stucco. With spectacular views of Prague Castle and the Vltava, Cotto Crudo is the hotel's chic and modern restaurant with a refined award-winning menu by Executive Chef Leonardo Di Clemente featuring authentic Italian cuisine and crudo bar classics which includes fresh seafood and sashimi. Nestled amid the stunning historic architecture of Prague's Old Town, the Four Seasons is the ultimate in luxury and world-class hospitality, and the perfect spot to explore one of the mist scenic and celebrated cities of the world.
