Super Tramp

Architect: Není znám

Year of completion: 19. století

As part of the so-called Vilímek Passage, connecting Spálená and Opatovická Street, there is an inner courtyard where the scent of coffee fills the air, and the literary history lingers. The passage was built in the 19th century by Josef Richard Vilímek, who had his publishing house and bookstore in the surrounding buildings. The business gradually gained a great reputation and became one of the most significant in the country. For example, it was the first to publish a Czech translation of Vinnetou. In the mid-20th century, Vilímek’s company was nationalized and subsequently liquidated, and the buildings were taken over by the central book distribution company. Since 1996, a section of the building has been occupied by the Higher Vocational School of Journalism, and in the inner courtyard, you will find Super Tramp Coffee. The majestic Neoclassical buildings around are complemented by a front terrace adorned with Doric columns. At the entrance to Opatovická Street, you can still see the inscription “Nakladatelství Jos. R. Vilímek” on the facade, commemorating the most glorious era of this building.

Unfortunately, this unique place will soon disappear from the café map of Prague. The whole house will undergo a major renovation and the last coffee you can enjoy here will be on July 31, 2024. Thank you for many great coffees. We will miss you.
