Prague’s Veverkova Street, once a humdrum side street, has evolved into a go-to area for design savvy locals and visitors alike. Located in the city’s happening Letna district, just east of Prague Castle, this now impossibly hip street is a prime spot for people watching and whiling away hours at cool cafes, shops and showrooms.
This one-room, corner bookshop and publishing house has been a bright spot among the surrounding gray facades since 2014. Specializing in art and design titles and original posters, it regularly hosts book launch parties, which spill into the street and contribute to Veverkova’s lively scene.

Award-winning furniture designer Helena Darbujanova brought her playful wares to Veverkova with the opening of her first showroom in 2014. One bed has a cute little heart carved out in the headboard. With names like Sweet Tweet, Macaroons and My Dear Fox in Flowers, her pieces are all produced in the Czech Republic by local artisans who share Ms. Darbujanova’s zest for life.
