The History of Vlaikova

1 December 2011 Clodin Gendova
Everybody knows where Vlaikova is. But this place has such an interesting history. So, inspired by Midnight in Paris main character, who wrote and rewrote a novel about a "nostalgic shop", we decided to do the same. And we offer yoo some memories.


Vlaikova is the oldest cinema hall in town. At one hand this is great. At the other hand - not so great at all. In the past, there were 300 seats and huge line in front of Vlaikova doors. Nowadays there are only 80 seats left, few visitors and old movies.
The bar has his own history. In the past to have a drink in Vlakova bar was near wild, wild west experience. There were knifes, drunks and a lot of noise. Now, this days are over. Vlaikova is a place where coll young people go and every weekend there is a nice DJ party.
We should thank to Maria Vlaikova for that. That`s the lady, who, at the middle of 20`s, decided to build Vlaikova. But she ran out of money and she had to devise it to the Ministry of Culture. In her will she wrote: Vlaikova must be only cinema hall and nothing else. So, we can give you a piece of advice - watch a movie there, have a drink in the bar and remember about this nice, old lady Maria Vlaikova.
