Creating atmosphere, bringing people together

During these months, Karchma 1863 has been more than just a restaurant; it has become a shelter for Belarusians, Poles, Ukrainians, Lithuanians and all those looking for a piece of home away from home.

We created and grew the restaurant as our child, gradually improving the taste of food, expanding the alcohol list, improving the service, creating a cosy atmosphere, holding meetings and events. And we still have plans and ideas for years of work, but ...
