What particular Czech specialities should one try in Prague? Various sauces and meat and dumplings, baked poultry, freshwater fish and sweet cakes are typical of the local cuisine. Is your mouth starting to water? Then why not try some Czech specialities at restaurants such as Mlýnec, Malostranská beseda, Potrefená husa, V Zátiší and Hergetova Cihelna (which also offers a breathtaking view of Charles Bridge and the Old Town).
The best beer in town
A glass of excellent beer or South Moravian wine is the perfect accompaniment to most meals. For beer, visit one of Prague’s brewery pubs, where the “liquid bread” is brewed in brass tanks. Among the most highly recommended are the famous pub U Fleků, Pivovarský dům and the Staropramen brewery in the Smíchov district.
