U dwau Maryí
In the historical and also tourists favourite city Český Krumlov is medieval tavern, house similar to many other houses in the town. This house was built between two town walls – in the so called roundabout moat. This generally happened in the interior of the town during the late Middle Ages. The town square is the natural heart of the town which is situated among the curves of the Vltava river. Originally it is a one storey house connected with the rundabout wall at its interior side used to stand here. At the entrance of the room is a fire – place was obviously incorporated into the one storey vault. The first floor was probably built then too. You can find there a lounge with picturesquely decorated ceiling of boards.
Later, the house was extended by a super – structure on the exterior side of the rundabout wall and a few openings were made into the wall. Still is possible to find a meter thick fortification wall in the interior of the house.
Plaster coating in Renaissance style has been preserved under the present baroque facade of the house.
There are two wall paintings which represent the Virgin Mary on the facade. These paintings were discovered during restoration in 1950. The first painting of St. Mary situated between the windows on the first floor is younger. This picture was created in the second half of the 18th century.
The tavern called „U dwau Maryi“ was opened in 1990. In this way they try to recreate the atmosphere of the past which you can feel in the carefully renovated rooms. Historic materials that would be otherwise destroyed or thrown away in the dump were reused for the equipment of the tavern. The decorative objects made with the skill of the ancient smiths were found mostly on tips, dumps or in litter containers. You can spend here amazing historical moments.
