They say that it was from the hotel and bar that the settlement of this territory began. Noisy trade, which accompanied the expansion of the city, continued to provide a permanent clientele for the hotel.

The fact that the bar has such a long history was discovered only in the late 1960s. It was found that the remains of the wall are covered with wicker clay, which dated the beginning of the 10th century.

Although the present building has been rebuilt, repaired and modernized over the centuries, it still contains many historical elements that are hundreds of years old.
