There are several restaurants in Prague whose names refer to Jaroslav Hašek’s popular literary character the Good Soldier Švejk. However, this is one of the few with a genuinely rich tradition.
Indeed, it is located in a building that housed U politické mrtvoly (At the Political Corpse), a famous wine bar frequented by leading Czech writers and poets in the interwar years. Švejk restaurant U Karla offers traditional Czech cuisine that can be washed down with excellent Pilsner Urquell beer. It also offers a big surprise – the restaurant offers patrons a complete gluten-free menu.
