Traditionally served as a main dish, Pražská šunka (Prague ham) can also be served in a Czechian style charcuterie board. The locals are mighty proud of this dish, and we can see why. This special ham is first cured, then stewed, and finally smoked, and may only be produced according to specific procedures. For decades, saying “Prague ham” is like mentioning cooked ham of the highest quality. To this day, European visitors flock to Prague not only for Prague Castle, but for this very dish, and you should too!

Continue off your culinary journey with a deliciously filling potato soup in the form of kuladja. Usually served with mushrooms, potatoes, seasoned with dill, and topped with a poached egg, kuladja is a household favorite, and especially popular in the winter time. This soup is actually quite light, and is a great appetizer to coat your palate in. Have it right after strolling through the Old Town in the midst of winter to get the full effect.
It is absolutely impossible to enjoy a Czech Republic private tour and not notice their love for beer. When in Prague, make sure to try out some of the most famous and well-loved beers, both local and international. Start off with a classic golden pale lager such as Pilsner Urquell. If you didn’t already know, Pilsner Urquell is actually the original golden beer from which other Pils lagers got their names from. What better way to have a pint than in the very country it was made!
