The oldest restaurant in Europe is still going in the basement of a Polish
town hall more than 700 years after first opening .
Located in the Main Square of Wroclaw, Poland, the 900-square metre eatery
has been operational since 1273, when the country's stodgy diet was
characterised by spice, beef and beer.

Counting the composer Frédéric Chopin and writer Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
among its distinguished diners, it was the city's only beer brewery for
several hundred years.

From the day it opened the restaurant's layout was evolving, until in the
15th century the basement took on the form familiar to tourists today.

The cellar's vestibule was linked by tunnel to an underground brewery in
1519, when beer barrels would be rolled into the restaurant.

Since then, changes have been merely cosmetic - including in 1904, when the
decor was switched to an Art Nouveau style.

Though the city was bombed in 1945, the cellars remained mainly intact.


“There are people in the world so hungry, that God cannot appear to them except in the form of bread.”
― Mahatma Gandhi
