Local Cuisine

The traditional czech food suits perfectly with czech beer. As a result all main dishes are made of beef and pork and are accompanied by "knedliky" which is oat or potatoes, boiled in water, and served warm. A typical dish is the Raiska that is made of meat with sauce and whipped cream. Goulash is also a characteristic soup that belongs to the long year tradition of the hungarian cuisine and has been adopted by the czech one too. Smazeny Syr is a fried cheese served with potatoes and sauce tartar. The Polevka is one of the most popular soups that is made of onions.

Prague is also famous for its beers. Beer is perfectly served with various snacks and meals. One of them is the Utopenci which is sausage cooked in vinegar, oil, onions, red pepper and other spices. Each different beer label has a different taste and as a result is served with a different kind of snack. Dark beers with their sweeter taste are the most popular among the Czech people.
