Really nice funky hipster bar with the museum would come back just for a beer! Good choice of beers and jazzy music!

A lot of so called "old pieces" from the old era of socialism. A kitch. First: the title is wrong: the "consumers" were not "communist". They were ordinary, simple people in a very poor country from the third world. A lot of materials are fantasy...More
