    I ordered this meal on my picture: haha, it's not a pizza but thin, potato cake with goulash (mixed, cut pieces of boiled in thick sauce meat) put on it. My dish was not spicy, so I added a little pepper and it was very good, although they should serve it a little more hot, I think.Goulash derives from Hungary but in contrast to say Czech they...

Mosty u Jablunkova Nightlife

  • matcrazy1's Profile Photo

    by matcrazy1 Updated Dec 20, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    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 :-).

Mosty u Jablunkova Shopping

  • 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.

Hopefully it changed for better in Czech Republic, I am almost sure...
