Are you looking for something truly unique to give to your family, friends or to your co-workers? Order a Šalanda, a non-traditional salon within the labyrinth of corridors in the historical lager cellars. Enjoy a relaxing atmosphere while sipping on non-filtered, non-pasteurised Pilsner Urquell beer, produced by the Pilsner Urquell Brewery using a non-traditional method in the historical brewery cellars.
Even though the temperature down in the beer cellars is 7°C (an ideal temperature for beer), the šalanda has a pleasant and warm environment.
The small Bednářská (cooper) šalanda accommodates 26 people, and the Large Siberian šalanda up to 50 guests.
The term “šalanda” referred to a room where beer workers ate and rested. The first šalanda was already established in the town brewery in 1844. At the beginning of the 19th century šalandas were built in large numbers for maltsters, stokers, engineers and coopers. The last preserved record of a šalanda dates back to 1946.
Šalandas were used as dining rooms or social rooms. They were fitted with plank beds, sometimes one above the other (bunk beds), a cooker with cooking utensils and a sink for washing dishes. Tables were placed in the middle of the room and cabinets for china and work clothes were positioned around.
Today, the new šalandas built in the cellars of the Pilsner Urquell Brewery are used for fun activities only.
Due to a lot of interest and the limited capacity of our šalandas, we recommend that you order the programme sufficiently in advance.
