The most expensive inn in Praag, the Bow and Bard is famous for its small number of rooms—only thirteen. There are six doubles, six singles, and a tiny room that is always kept empty by the taciturn landlord, Tolya Tolyeviska. As the Bow and Bard is the best place to stay outside of the palace or the home of a boyar, an unspoken competition exists between lesser dignitaries over who is able to find rooms there. In the tap room below, the druzhinas and wealthy merchants mix with foreign visitors, and the Operatic Society frequently meets in the card rooms in the back. Nobody knows exactly how Tolya decides who will stay and who will be "bumped"—or why he leaves the thirteenth room empty—but these mysteries provide much discussion over the kvas and samogon (a crude moonshine).[1a]
