Beer tour Prague: U Zlatého tygra
U Zlatého tygra – the temple of Czech beer lovers and not only the Czech ones. At Golden tiger is home to lovers of Pilsner beer from all over the world.
A renowned pub where the most prominent celebrities have come throughout the times. Writers, actors, painters, doctors, politicians, and ordinary people: decorators, shopkeepers, cooks … in one pub and often together at one table. That’s the essence of the pub U Zlatého tygra.
It is not too much to say that this place has helped enrich our cultural heritage. Because it was here that writers’ ideas were sorted in their heads, giving birth to other ideas that will lead their pens on the pages of their works, singers played with their melodies, painters made sketches, and we could go on and on.
But the most influential person in the atmosphere of this famous pub was Bohumil Hrabal. A renowned writer who was the most frequently translated Czech author of the 20th century. It was at U Zlatého tygra that his famous meetings with Czech President Vaclav Havel and US President Bill Clinton took place, while other habitués were attending their favourite tables.
