The historic district of Kazimierz, in the heart of Kraków, Poland, finds itself as both a historical and geographical crossroads. Polish culture has remained strong throughout the centuries and being surrounded by seven nations has allowed for vibrant artistic tendencies to rise in the neighbourhood. Among galleries, shops, and bars, inside a residential building from the 19th century, the exclusive boutique restaurant Bottiglieria 1881 is ever ready to greet its guests.
Bottiglieria 1881 embodies founder Robert Gumuliński’s passion for wine and cuisine, which sparked after his trips to Italy. Opened in 2013, the restaurant seeks to offer several hundred wines, each with a unique flavour and aroma to cater to any palate, whether they are looking for a classic and simple taste or a more sophisticated one. The wine is cared for by professional sommeliers, who make sure the storage has the constant perfect temperature and appropriate level of humidity, which allows for guests to enjoy the undistorted fragrance in each glass.
