Charles Street in the city center is full of backpackers, walk from Old Town Square and Charles Bridge. However, some of them go a little off the route to the temple of Czech beer drinkers — beer restaurant U Zlateho tygra, who became famous through the works of Bohumil Hrabal.
Great beer and classic home atmosphere
This place is almost like an oasis in the center of Prague, crowded cafes and nice restaurants. If you do not know where it is, it is easy to find it on the street Husova. There is also a sign on the gray house U Zlateho tygra.
The place opens at three in the afternoon, and the waiters open the door to a pub with vaulted ceilings, which is famous for the best beer Pilsner in Prague. At this time, there is still a chance to take the empty seat. Starting from 17:00, and even before, there is no chance to find a free space. This is despite the fact that there is a luxurious interior, or elegant cuisine, or twenty waitress. Visitors come here just to drink beer.
This is a real Czech hospoda for those who appreciate good beer, like in any way.
They are going to groups of friends, some of whom come here for decades, workers, professors, merchants, etc. It was the same when Bohumil Hrabal used to sit here. Although he died over a decade ago, he still has his «own» the place reserved U Zlateho tygra. Previously, he was the guest of honor, it confirms his bust in front of the front door or photographs of his meeting with President Havel and Clinton.
U Zlatého tygra nothing more to drink than beer, wine and soda. And if you feel hungry, probably the best choice would be fried pork schnitzel with potato pancakes, cabbage salad and bread. Another classic dish that’s worth trying is U Zlatého tygra beer cheese, because this was the first beer house, where the manufacturer started shipping this famous food regularly.
