Hotel Beskyd Restaurace: It was not pepper box/pot/shaker
I wanted to add some pepper to my dish, I tried and I... coudn't at first. The glass, small bottle - on my picture - contained uncrushed peppercorns and looked like pepper pot/box/shaker but the bottle didn't have holes in the top. Ha, ha I didn't notice it at first. It was...
Hotel Beskyd Restaurace: Not spicy cousine
Excuse me, it's more Czech than Mosty u Jablunkova transportation tip - I will transfer it to my new Czech page, soon!Czech cousine is not spicy in any way. Although I noticed that in northeastern area of Czech called Morava (Olomouc) it's a little bit more spicy, the same...
Horska chata Girova - Studenicne: No nightlife? Not at all, but...
Hmm... there was no nightlife in Mosty u Jablunkova, I mean no discos, night clubs etc.
My nightlife was partying with my friends from Poland in a mountain cottage called "chata Girova - Studenicne" located up in the mountains (check my accommodation tip for more). If you arrive there alone you may eventually meet some interesting people but the cottage was often fully booked by groups, at least in weekends. But sometimes, anyway, there were a few beds available there.
Warning: watch for loud school groups or... me and my friends.
Local pubs/bars and restaurants which were the only places to meet locals in the evening were closed early (usually 7-8pm on business days and sometimes 10pm in weekends). Once they stay opened till hmm... I can't remember, midnight or so. We were in large group of over 20 persons which meant great business for the owner (and one taxi driver hehe), I suppose.
Dress Code: Always casual that means T-shirt, jeans, trainers or so. Haha, I even can't imagine anyone dressed like dandy there :-).

Local groceries and restaurants: Smoked sheep cheese
I always looked for so called "syrove korbaciki" - local, home-made, smoked sheep cheese - sold exclusively in this mountainous region of Czech and adjacent region of Slovakia. Syrove korbaciki means cheese, thin pigtails in Czech as the cheese is formed in shape of a thin...
Local groceries: Gambrinus beer
Gambrinus Premium was usually the best draught beer in Hotel Beskydy Restaurace. A must try for those who didn't have the pleasure yet of putting it in their bellies. I found Gambrinus from bottles a little bit worse - not well stored, or what? My short opinion: light hop...

Local, simple food was not spicy. There was nothing more than salt, black pepper, maggie and vinegar to improve (or to make worse) the taste of my dishes in Hotel Beskyd restaurant and in other places to eat around as well. If you used to add numerous spices or sauces to...
They could speak... Czech fluently :-)
I was glad to meet personally a few natives in local pubs/bars and I must admit that they all could speak Czech language and exclusively Czech language quite fluently. Waiters in local restaurants, bus drivers, owners and staff of "Chata Studenicne" (mountain cottage), of...
Sympathetic, not corruptive police but
It seems that police in Czech Republic is much better in contacts with foreign visitors that it was in Czechoslovakia in 70' and 80' but... Just one event in 1994 or so:We were living in a mountain cottage called "Chata Studenicne" in 1994 or so. To get there one had to pass...
