Het Vaticaan Tilburg Reviews
Not so holy as it may seem... Jun 07, 2010
Café Het Vaticaan (Translation: The Vatican), is located in a street full of bars in the centre of Tilburg. The street is called ‘De Korte Heuvel’ (Translation: The Short Hill) and Het Vaticaan is located at the very end of it.
On normal days, it’s a great place for a quiet dinner and/ or some drinks, but on occasions this usually calm place goes wild. Examples are Carnival and Dutch soccer matches.
Whenever there is a soccer tournament, large television screens appear in the bar and on the terrace and everybody who likes to watch turns up wearing something orange, the colour of our national soccer team. An example of this can be seen here: http://www.cafevaticaan.nl/pages/gallery/ek-2008-nederland---italie23.php
The atmosphere is always very festive, even when the Dutch team loses (right after the match most people are a bit quiet, this doesn’t last very long).
