Discover the best-tasting specialities
Czech specialties include both meat and meatless dishes. Dishes involving complex preparation, as well as simple dishes easily prepared at home that the whole family can enjoy. Czech cuisine includes such specialties as pork roast with dumplings of several kinds and a side of cabbage, as well as ordinary potato pancakes with spices fried in lard or quark dumplings stuffed with fruit and topped with melted butter. Among these must-taste specialities of Czech cuisine are also vegetable and legume dishes, rabbit meat and game. However, we must not forget all the amazing sauces, soups and sweet dishes such as plum jam or quark bun cakes and pies that Czechs love so much. And if your travels take you to southern Bohemia to the Třeboň region, famous for its countless ponds, you must not miss out on the superbly prepared fresh freshwater fish.

Tradition Regional Foods

Foods found nowhere else
Travel the Czech Republic with us and set out in search of the many tastes and aromas of regional foods, whose tradition often dates as far back as the Middle Ages! In the mood for something sweet? In Hořice near the Giant Mountains (Krkonoše), the famous Hořice wafer rolls, which are cream-filled curled wafers, are made. In Pardubice in eastern Bohemia you can taste sweet gingerbread, which has been produced here for several centuries, and in Štramberk in Moravia, let your tastebuds go to town with the aromatic spiced pastry called Štramberk ears. And if you don't like it sweet, go to Olomouc and nearby Loštice, where a special ripened, low-fat and highly aromatic mature cheese called tvarůžky is made. And speaking of cheese, delicious wines from south Moravian winemakers pair superbly well. You can taste them almost anywhere in southern Moravia, for example, in Valtice at the château in the Wine Salon of the Czech Republic tasting exhibition.
