Finding Basteja comes as a relief, as it validates the hope that there must be at least a few cool bars hidden somewhere in this city. Hidden indeed it is - in a passageway between ul. Kapitulna and ul. Wałowa - and it owes a lot to its location which comprises part of Tarnów's ancient city walls. On one side you'll find an ethereal coffee-coloured interior with tasteful lighting and black and white photography of Old Tarnów on the walls, while across the passage you can't miss the magnificent summer beer garden (open April to October) inside the ruins of the bastion it takes its name from. Either way, this is one of the most laid-back locales around and if you're here in the warm season you'll likely leave with it near the top of your list of trip highlights.
