Starý Biskupský Hostinec will enchant you….
After years of decay, a remarkable historic building in the center of Nitra park was given a new face. From May 2015, you can admire this building, located in the relaxation part of the town park, near the Nitra River, in its full beauty and elegance.
This classicist building served as a tavern in the past, and later as a café. It was built in 1831 by Bishop Vurum and was used as an inn for travelers until the demise of the Austro-Hungarian Empire. In the following years, the building was exposed to massive flooding. Later the facade and windows were restored. In the inter-war period the building served as a café. Unfortunately after that, it was neglected for years and almost everything precious inside and outside was destroyed.
After many years, we have brought life back to the building. In May 2015, the Old Bishop´s Inn was revived in its original beauty. The building was given a new look with respect to the former appearance. Thanks to the demanding reconstruction, various original elements such as a facade, columns or a coat of arms above the entrance, were preserved. Two outdoor terraces were added. One of them provides a view of the Nitra River, the other one faces the entire park. The interior is modernly designed, but boldly combines history and present.
Today, Old Bishop´s Inn offers its premises for organizing corporate or family events, social and business meetings, parties or various celebrations. It has a stylish restaurant and a confectionery with delicious coffee, excellent homemade desserts and originally made ice-cream. All desserts and cakes have become very popular and can even be ordered for private occasion. The menu is always varied, from breakfast during weekends to daily menu, which is always prepared exclusively from fresh ingredients. We also offer a complete set of original fruit distillates from Palenica Jelsovce. Each drop combines nature with the highest quality of processing. In a rich beverage menu, you can find home-made lemonades, mixed drinks and several kinds of draft beer. We also provide a wine card with the finest wines from Slovakia and other countries.
