prague: trdelnik

When traveling, I love trying new food almost more than seeing the sights. Here's the first of several fun foods we tried in Prague - Trdelnik. It's a sweet dough rope wrapped around a metal bar, which is spun over a flame until golden, then rolled in a sugar/cinnamon/nut mix. It's yum and not hard to find. At the old town easter market, there were at least a dozen booths. I ate three or so, then switched to langose, which I'll blog about next.

I was a little worried that one of these enormous trdelnik replicas (each booth had one) would fly off in the gusty wind and take us out

best when warm, also works as a wrist band

Hmm, my lovely trdelnik!! It has a rich history, which dates back to the early 19th century; however, trdelnik has not been made in larger volumes until the middle of the 20th century. Prague is one of the most romantic cities in the world for me. You may visit it with parents, friends or other relatives. But if you have a chance to explore Prague with your beloved, this gorgeous city will show you other face. Prague has so much to offer,cheap Prague hotels, great food and beer! Amazing architecture, wonderful people and clean quiet gardens. For my visit I've chosen the winter and don't regret about it because Christmas Prague is more lovable and romantic and also it is a season of trdelnik.
