Tastes of Prague

Our visit to Prague was a short one (but most certainly a fun & beautiful one!!) – our main reason for our trip to Prague was to visit Stef’s cousin (they are from South Africa and have been living in Prague for 5 years!). We intended to stay for 3 days, but ended up staying for 4 days!! πŸ™‚

I would love to plan another trip there – there are sooooo many gems that we did not get round to seeing (and of course that we do not know about!) Today, I am going to share with you two very prominent/traditional tastes of Prague, that you should definitely taste (and probably will)!!! πŸ™‚

Tredlnik is a traditional cake/pastry from the Slovak/Czech Republic!! Oh my, this was just superbly delicious!!! (remember the pastries?? πŸ˜‰ )! Tredlnik is made by wrapping dough around a stick, giving it a hollow inside. This is then grilled & topped with sugar and a nut mix!!! It is almost like cinnamon pancake in cake form!!! Sooooooo yummy!!! You can get a good idea about the process from the photo below!

I am NOT a beer drinker… πŸ™‚ But, you can’t be in Prague and not drink a pint of their pride – Pilsner Urquell!! πŸ˜€ Let me give you the low-down: Pilsner Urquell has been produced since 1842 in a town called Pilsen (Czech Republic). It is the first pilsner beer in the world, characterized by its golden colour & clarity. Nine out of ten beers produced and consumed in the world are derived from the original Pilsen beer. This led to Pilsner Urquell being a prominent brand of the global brewing empire SABMiller – which is ironically a South African company! **all information from Wiki**

As I said, I am not a beer drinker, but this beer was so light and tasty that I drank every last drop!! Yum-yum!! πŸ˜€

Both of these tastes are definitely something that I look forward to eating and drinking again!! Prague will see me again someday!!! πŸ˜€

    Ah yes, Pilsner Urquell! Fantastic beer. The export stuff we get in Australia must have some additives as its not a good as it is there. Fond memories indeed.

    I loved it there, and Tredlnik is the bomb. You have to go see St Vitus cathedral if you didn’t yet. Talk about gorgeous architecture

    An do you know that Pilsner beer is the only alcalic (therefore healthier) beer? Others are accidic, which is bad for your body :-).
    BTW I believe trdelnik is from Hungary (much longer tradition and also 2-3 times bigger piece of cake), we have it in Czech Republic for let’s say 10 year for tourists :-).
