The Patriotic Association of Cottagers (“Baráčníci”) was established in 1874. Its name was suggested by Czech craftsmen and peasants who met in a small tavern called Baráček (“Little Cottage”). The Patriotic Association soon became very popular among country folks, in contrast to various citizens’ organizations and ladies’ clubs at that time. The establishment of the first similar cottagers’ association is documented in Prague-Dejvice in 1880, followed by associations established in Hradčany, Bubeneč and in 1885 in the Old Town. The association successfully spread throughout Bohemia, but also to Vienna and the U.S.
Baracnicka Rychta is hidden in a small street of Lesser Town. If you find your way here, you may discover a real treasure – a real Czech restaurant with slightly nostalgic and relaxing atmosphere. Wooden interior with brass chandeliers creates cozy atmosphere, almost like being in “first republic” times. Restaurant offers dishes from typical Old Bohemian cuisine, which is the best with Pilsner and Svijany beer! In the basement there is a large hall where for generations local concerts, weddings or balls are taking place.
