Discover Bohemian, Moravian and Slovak folklore!
During the reconstruction in winter 2012 we decided to adapt our restaurant for presentations of Bohemian, Moravian and Slovakian folklore in order to show our customers the most of this beautiful art.
For this reason we decorated the restaurant with artwork of our leading folk painters. The collection 'Men's Fur Coats' by Joška Úprka, our best known folk painter (1861–1940) is exhibited in the main hall. Joška Úprka was a colleague and a friend of Alfons Mucha. Alfons Mucha helped him to exhibit his works in the Salon of French Artists in Paris in 1894 where Joška Úprka was awarded 'Mention Honorable' for his painting 'Pilgrimage to St. Anthony Church' and became a European of Moravian Slovakia.
Our guests can view genuine folk costumes, all hand embroidered with an extraordinary skill and refinement displayed inside the restaurant. These costumes originate from Western Bohemia across Eastern Slovakia, some of them were made more than 100 years ago.
Folklore performances are held between 7 pm and 10–10.30 pm.
Folk traditions are usually passed down by family members. Therefore we create our performances combining knowledge and skill of our performers and their family members.
