Surprise visit to Praha…

30 Jun

Roasted Duck and Sour White & Red Cabbage in old Bohemian style.

Living in Southern Germany it is very easy to visit  neighbour countries with few hours of travel by car. Last Tuesday was my Birthday. Usually on my Birthday my hubby surprises me with presents. But this time it was a different surprise. Yes, he booked a surprise vacation at Prague. I heard of Prague as a beautiful city and I completely agree with what I have seen.

To have real feel of the city and to interact with people, we decided to use public transport to reach the city from our vacation home. Then we had a long walk around the old city. On our way we were amazed by beautiful ancient buildings all around the old city. Majestic Cathedrals, Charles Bridge with beautiful monuments and it is truely a place with lot of history.  Ok, definitely not the least we wanted to also try the traditional food.  We have ordered for Goulash and Bread Dumpling, Steaks.The food was nicely presented, and it was delicious as it looks.

On Tuesday we visited Prague Castle. I liked the Golden lane among all the attractions inside the castle. After a very nice historical site seeing it was lunch time already. We wanted to go for traditional food again. We found this restaurant 2kms away from the castle which was promising to serve typical food which we were looking for. Our menu was Roasted duck with sour white & red cabbage in old Bohemian Style, Dumplings and Goulash with Potato cakes. I have tried Goulash and sour cabbage several times here in Germany but the bread dumplings was interesting to know.  I also came to know from one of the traditional Czech recipe book that some  recipies are common in German and Czech Cuisine.

At the end of our trip we felt happy and nice. Perhaps two days was short time to know about Prague and decided to visit one more time later.

Some Fresh salad with Balsamic dressing.
