This is part of a series of student articles written as part of a journalism course at Anglo-American University in Prague.

The "Cities Best Facilitating Remote Work" global index, compiled by the WorkMotion platform, recently named Prague as the best city in Europe for remote work. This distinction is based on various factors, including regulations supporting remote work, cost of living, availability of public amenities, and legal obligations. For those in search of a laptop-friendly cafe to work comfortably from for extended periods, here are some recommendations for where to power up, plug in, order a cup, and start working.

Miners

A top pick in the Vinohrady area is Miners. It stands out with its large windows that provide plenty of natural lighting, which helps enhance concentration. The spacious interior provides ample room for comfortable laptop work, while a dedicated area in the center offers convenient power outlets positioned discreetly under the tables. Once you start work, there is no need to ask anyone for the Wi-Fi password as it is open and freely available. 

Cafedu

Located near the National Museum in the center of Prague, Cafedu is easily accessible, as it is situated right outside a tram stop. With its two spacious floors, you don't have to worry about taking up space for an extended period while you complete your tasks, study, or work. And, if you prefer an outdoor setting, seating options are available outside the cafe.

If you're looking for a dedicated workspace, you can choose to use the study room upstairs (available for a fee). The study room is open 24/7, including weekends and public holidays, making it convenient for those who need to work during late hours or on weekends. Inside the study room is a quiet room if you prefer a silent work environment. However, if your work involves conference calls or group projects, there is a separate room available for such activities.

Coffee and Riot

This place is conveniently located near Old Town, making it easily accessible. Despite its smaller space, you will find enough room to sit with your laptop and few distractions as it is not crowded. The café provides reliable Wi-Fi and convenient outlets, allowing you to spend a few hours working comfortably without interruptions.

Žižkavárna Cafe

When you visit Žižkavárna Cafe, don't forget to check the Wi-Fi password written on the cup at the counter before finding a seat. Once you have it, you can opt for a window seat, where you can gaze upon the lively street of Žižkov. If you prefer a peaceful and quiet spot to concentrate, you can choose a small table that offers enough space for you and your laptop.

Kolektor

This spot offers an additional benefit: it is conveniently located in the same building as the National Gallery, allowing you to visit the gallery before or after completing your work. Inside, you'll find a minimalistic interior design featuring simple tables and chairs that foster a clean and focused environment. With ample space available, you can comfortably spend a significant amount of time without feeling cramped.

When you place your order, simply ask for the Wi-Fi password, which will be provided to you just before you choose your seat. You can find a table and chair or opt for larger tables designed for collaborative work if you're in a team. You also have the option to sit outside and work, but the large windows inside bring in plenty of natural light too, creating a pleasant and productive atmosphere.

Coffee Corner

Located conveniently in front of the Perunova stop on Korunní Street, this café is easily accessible. Once inside, you are greeted by friendly staff who quickly help you find a comfortable seat, and if you're a fan of natural light, you can choose a seat by the window. In addition to the free Wi-Fi, another perk is that this café welcomes dogs, allowing you to bring along your furry friend while completing your tasks. 

Kavárna Místo

Sitting in Prague 6, in the neighborhood of Bubeneč, Kavárna Místo offers ample space and reliable Wi-Fi. It is a popular choice among remote workers, creating a lively ambiance with fellow laptop users, but not so crowded that you cannot find a spot to sit. For added convenience, there is a dedicated area at the back specifically designed for those working on laptops.

Café Tvaroh

Located in Prague 7, Café Tvaroh is close to Letná Park. If you explored this area, you might have missed it since its exterior blends in with the similar-looking buildings in the area. Upon entering the cafe, you will be greeted by an inviting interior that features a soothing green ambiance reminiscent of an outdoor garden. You also have the option to sit outside, as the café offers outdoor seating too. Rest assured, Wi-Fi is available, ensuring you can work comfortably.
