1375 tavern opened to the public.


U Krále Brabantského (King of Brabant Tavern) is located in the center of Prague. It is reportedly one of the oldest pubs in Prague, shrouded in many fables and legends. The Rudolfinian alchemists, the executioner Mydlář, Wenceslas IV, Rudolf II, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Karel Čapek, and Jaroslav Hašek drank here. There is an inscription which is thought to be genuine.

Priwileg tento mnou podle vůle Boží zepsaný ustanovuje hostinec tento hostincem královským. Šenkýřce tím ukládá dobré pivo míti, jinak priwileg propadá. Tak stanovuji já, Wáclav IV., z Boží vůle král.
This privilege, written by me according to the will of God, makes this inn a royal inn. And he commandeth the steward to have good ale, or else the privilege shall be forfeited. Thus do I, Wenceslaus IV, king by God's will.

Today they offer medieval shows, which are actually not medieval at all, more like tattooed neo-goths doing some juggling. There are dancers on tables, jugglers, swordsmen, fakirs and beggars.
