TRADITIONAL CZECH DRINKS AND FOODS
Typical Czech drinks Becherovka is a herbal liquor from Karlovy Vary traditionally made out of several secret plants. It is said to be good for digestion and to have medicinal properties. Nevertheless, this doesn’t necessarily mean that it will be your favourite. We recommend tasting it before buying an entire bottle :-) Fernet is another herbal beverage, very appreciated by the Czech people (and not only by them). It comes in different variants, Stock (or bitter), Citrus (Lemon) and is best served cold or with ice. Is an alcoholic beverage made from plums. Different variants of this type of drink are made of other fruits and come in aromas like: pears (hruškovice), apricot (merunkovice), etc. It is stronger and clearer than herbal liqueurs, and it’s very popular especially in Moravia, the North – Eastern part of the Czech Republic.
Typical Czech foods Goulasch with dumplings. Probably the most common dish in the Czech Republic. The sauce is wonderfully rich and good dumplings are slightly moist and can be used to soak up a lot of the sauce. The rings of raw onions are the token vegetable thrown in but you don't have to eat them. Fried cheese. Very typical Czech fast food, a wedge of edam, covered in bread crumbs and deep fried, served with chips and tartar sauce. It's enough to give your nutritionist a heart attack. Cheesy, garlicy croutons adorn this bowl of soup served up in our restaurants. Other side dishes are: rice, potatoes (boiled, baked or fried). Czech people love Svičková (read “svitch-co-va”) or Rajská (read “raiska”), a somehow interesting combination of meat with sauce and whipped cream.
Beer Czech beer, or beer brewed in the Czech Republic has a long and important history. A brewery is known to have existed in 1118, the city of Brno had a right to brew beer from the 12 th century, and the two cities most associated with Czech beer, Plzen and Ceske Budejovice (Pilsen and Budweis in German), certainly had breweries in the 13 th century.
