The Majestic Café is a fine example of Art Nouveau architecture, thanks to its large curved mirrors, sculptures and leather seating. This refined café has been attracting high society and bohemian intellectuals since it opened in 1921. One of the most famous recent visitors was J. K. Rowling, who wrote parts of Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone in the atmospheric lamplit interior.
