I went to my mother in law and looked in some very old, dusty books and
found exellent medieval word for 'bard':
gedziec (gedziec, with a tail under 'e') it is difficult to pronounce even
for Polish native speakers: [k-E-dzietz] E- like '-en' in french 'tres
Gedziec from 'gedzic' = to tell a story, poetry.
Another nice word is: gosciniec (gosciniec, with a tail over 's' = soft 's',
goshtschinietz) = karczma, szynk, place of rest and the what you are looking
for: place of entertainment.
Gosciniec from 'goscic' = to host someone
So I would suggest something like:
'Gosciniec Gedzców' (Gosciniec Gedzcow) for a Bards Rest.
Have a nice tongue breaking! ;)
I love old Polish! It is so rich and beautiful!
