Prague pubs after 20 years of free market: What's left

Prague pubs after 20 years of free market: What's left
But only for a while. Currently, the Slavic Pub no longer exists.
SMÍCHOVSKÝ SKLÍPEK, Národní 31, Prague 1. Another site that had to give way to Prague's booming tourism-driven modernization.
U RYCHTÁŘE, Dlouhá 2, Prague 1. The pub on the corner of the Dlouhá street and the Old Town Square was nicknamed "The Coffins", because Prague's funeral service had its seat right next to it. The pub has converted into a "bed lounge", which allows for some more cynical parallels, since the funeral service has its seat still at the same place.
U ROTUNDY, Karolíny Světlé, Prague 1. Beer now costs CZK 24 (approximately one euro), which is 9.6 times more than in 1989 when the price was 2.50. And, the pub has a new LCD television. Apart of this, the Rotunda pub looks mostly unchanged, preserving the original atmosphere.
