"Siekierezada" is much larger today than it was years ago. It has three halls and a mezzanine. The guests are greeted with figures of devils and portraits of runners - the first regulars of the original beer pump room.
From the outside, it is inconspicuous and does not stand out with anything - just another wooden hut. But the one standing in the center of Cisna (Podkarpackie Province) is extraordinary - it is the famous "Siekierezada".
Siekierezada in Cisna, also known as the Devil's pub, refers to the cult novel by Edward Stachura of the same title. It has its own specific atmosphere and décor combining the features of tough woodcutters from Bieszczady and sensitive artists for whom the Bieszczady have become an inspiration.
In Siekierezad, axes and devilish heads hang on the walls, as well as works by local artists and photographs of charismatic regulars. The local wine and beer poured straight from the "pipa" are famous. During the season and beyond, we will encounter crowds of tourists taking souvenir photos and eating traditional dishes of this region. There is a proverb that being in Cisna and not visiting Siekierezada is like being in Rome and not seeing the Pope.
" Siekierezada" is much larger today than it was years ago. It has three halls and a mezzanine. The guests are greeted with figures of devils and portraits of runners - the first regulars of the original beer pump room. Even the door leaves to the bar area have the silhouettes of fiends. The interior is dominated by wood. The menu footbridge (devils' bas-relief) is wooden and chained to the tables, but the hallmark of the restaurant are axes nailed to massive wooden tables. Deer horns and chains hang from the ceiling. The whole interior reflects the character of the old pub of the Bieszczady lumberjacks and lumberjacks.
