Building story

The building at 26 Sławkowska Street which houses Cyrano de Bergerac in its cellar has a nearly five-hundred year old tradition. The tenement-house was built within the Northern part of the city’s fortifications raised in 13th-14th century to repel Tatar invasions. The first written information about the inhabitants comes from the year 1598. It has been listed in the Register of Monuments as one of the few tenement-houses in Cracow. People of various professions lived here, among them goldsmiths, bakers and gingerbread makers. In 1841 Kazimierz Robacki, a violinist and cathedral chanter’s son established Miodosytnia K. Robackiego (Mead Cellar of K. Robacki), which started a tradition of gastronomic activity at 26 Sławkowska Street. Honey, the basic material for mead production was brought from Ukraine and Podola. It was brewed on the premises of the Corpus Christi Church in Kazimierz. Afterwards it was taken to Sławkowska Street 26 where it was warmed and enriched with special herbs and spices. Prepared in this manner, the mead mellowed in storage for several years in quarters called Korzenna which are today’s cellars of Cyrano de Bergerac. The mead cellar itself was situated on the ground floor of the building.
