Some say that the path to understanding a culture leads through its cuisine and we can’t imagine a better way to learn about a country’s history than at a feast. And besides great food Czech medieval restaurants offer also dance and music shows and other era-appropriate entertainment.

Krčma U krále Brabantského, Prague
This tavern has been attended supposedly by peasants as well as disguised kings since the 14th century! Delicious, mostly meat-based dishes, authentic atmosphere and unique shows will transport you right back to the Middle Ages. You can also book a show just for you and your company and should you be too tired to travel further, you can use the stylish accommodation in the very same building.
We recommend visiting this tavern after an afternoon walk in Lesser Town!
