5 floor of department store Bílá Labuť (www.bilalabut.cz), famous building of the architect Jan Gillar from 1937 - 1939. This last floor is today a shelter for a cheap cantine U Rozvařilů. The name refers to the famous bufet in the groundfloor of the Archa Palace, on the other side of the street. Bufet was closed after 70 years in April 2008. In the 5th floor of Bílá Labut I remember to be a more luxurious bufet, designed for the refreshment of the rich Prague families comming to the first Prague departement store.
