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!! 🙂
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)!!! 🙂
Tredlnik is a traditional cake/pastry from the Slovak/Czech Republic!! Oh my, this was just superbly delicious!!! (remember the pastries?? 😉 )! 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… 🙂 But, you can’t be in Prague and not drink a pint of their pride – Pilsner Urquell!! 😀 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!! 😀
Both of these tastes are definitely something that I look forward to eating and drinking again!! Prague will see me again someday!!! 😀
