This is a restaurant serving Czech cuisine in a brewery. Czech cuisine is fatty, rich and very filling. The most famous dishes are the knödel—bread balls in sauce, and pork knuckle, better known by locals as pečené vepřové koleno or boar’s knee.

This restaurant at a brewery offers guests a chance to watch the brewing process through a glass wall. Tourists are especially attracted to the exotic kinds of beer offered here, such as banana and coffee beer.

From the historical point of view, Žižkov district is an area for the poor, working class, students, and Bohemians—and therefore, great entertainment.

This is a real cultural heritage. This pub, called “At the Golden Tiger”, has remained virtually unchanged since the 19th century, being one of the few authentic Czech pubs in the city. Vaclav Havel, the first President of the free Czech Republic, loved coming here and once brought Bill Clinton here for a pint of beer. Curiously enough, this did not turn “At the Golden Tiger” into a tourist attraction. It is still a place enjoyed mostly by locals.
