Mmmm...Praha, sooo much beer, Pilsners to be precise =P But a very beautiful city as well. They call it the "Golden City" or the City of a Thousand Spires" and I can see why. Winding streets full of Baroque houses, massive churches everywhere (hence the spires), a lovely riverside and to top it off, a surprisingly cultured nightlife. Classical …
... excited by, they make drinks with either a tea or milk base in a whole range of different flavours but also into the drink go these bubbles about the size of small grapes so as you drink through a straw you have the flavor of the drink plus the little bubbles of flavor bursting as you bite them, quite a hit.
We did check out the Old town square, magnificent, watched Czech buskers, (there is local style of bagpipes which create a very unique sound, ...
