    Caffè Concerto Paszkowski in Florence, Italy

    One of the most famous historical cafés in Florence is the Caffè Concerto Paszkowski. It is located on the site of the former Jewish ghetto in the premises of one of the first cafes founded in Florence.

    In 1903, it was bought by a Pole, Karol Paszkowski, a beer producer, and named after him. It started as a Polish brewery in the 19th century Jewish ghetto, but when the area was redeveloped, Paszkowski maintained the same site and now has a place of honor in Republic Square.

    It quickly became a meeting place for writers of the time, who discussed politics and the latest artistic trends in the fumes of cigar smoke.

    The rooms have retained their appearance from a hundred years ago, and musical evenings are often organized as a traditional speciality of the place. Today, the restaurant does not belong to Poles, only the name remains.
