After touring the Klementinum, we were famished and wanted something to tide us over until dinner time. We peeked around the corner from where we had just been and found that Klub Arthiteku, a restaurant on my list of places to check out, was right there! Klub Arthiteku is located inside a Romanesque building from Czech history. We hopped down the stairs to the basement to find what looked like an ancient cellar, complete with brick, vaulted ceiling and candle light flickering throughout.
So many of the medieval buildings in Prague has been transformed into restaurants over the years. Combining high-quality food with an amazingly unique architectural experience.
Dan ordered his first Czech beer, for which there are known the world over for, and I settled on a cup of warm tea, to calm my stomach. The vertigo was setting in, and this was the last meal I had the chance to duck into before I got too sick.
The menu was subtle at this place but served up some traditional Czech cuisine, with fresh, local ingredients. I ordered the soup of the day along with a delicious green salad, and Dan ordered the soup as well along with some bread and dumplings. It was fantastic and at the atmosphere down in the cellar was, once again, so quiet and relaxing compared to the hub-bub of all the touristy bars on the main drag.
Right outside the Klub Arthiteku, on our way out to the main square, was a large, building modern art sculpture. It depicted a neon pink bunch of crawling flora, weaving its way up the side of the building. A beautiful blend of contemporary art against the backdrop of an ancient building. Beautiful
