Doors To Food Are Always Open

In the Czech Republic, food is very earthy and flavorful. Meat and potatoes are the staples, not many vegetables grow there due to the cold weather and many months of snow. Sweets are delicious, as it is in most countries in the world. Eating sweets is rewarding after a difficult day or a situation, it lifts up the spirit and it is a way to celebrate good things. The aroma coming out from the Trdelník Shop is inviting and enveloping, that’s what got me to go in there.

Trdelník Shop

The trdelník is a sweet bread, almost like a wrapper, served warm. The filling might be sweet such as chocolate, a choice of jams, caramel and/or a variety of fruit. Alternatively, the filling can be savory with many ingredients such as würstel, cheese, tomatoes, sausages and more tasty choices. In the wintertime, that bundle of warm food in the hand is surely very comforting.

Inside Trdelník Shop

Inside the Trdelník Shop, there is a frenzied atmosphere, sweet frenzy I would say. The workers sing while they prepare a huge amount of the trdelník to satisfy the curiosity of the customer’s taste buds. As in any fast food establishment, customers must order quickly and leave with their warm bundles just as quickly to allow others to do the same, as these places are not made to sit in.

A family-owned restaurant

I was never served a huge mountain of fried potatoes as I have in this place. There were enough chips for four people on my plate every time. The carved doors were the reason to get me inside.

Beer alley as I have named it

The beers in Prague are delicious in any color, texture and style.
Doors of businesses are often made of wood, with heavy wrought-iron bolts and hardware to close the doors. They looked like the same hardware I used to see in the country farm homes of my native Italy, there was a certain familiarity to them. It’s very common to find doors decorated and carved with designs symbolizing the products sold in the business they secure and if they are just simple doors, they are at least painted in colors.

Traveling is for learning customs, history, traditions, food and even languages of other countries. Prague is an easy city for walking, I hope you have a chance to visit it.

At The Golden Crown Door

Prague is a beautiful and very walkable city. History is well represented in buildings, monuments, and public places. I like that, history is about what we are today.
Going around the city, I noticed the elegant stores’ doors, at least in the center of the town all stores have pleasant, inviting entrances and in some cases they are monumental.

This is a jewelry store called The Golden Crown. A lot of gold details are visible on the doors of Prague’s stores, I wondered if it has to do with the city castle where the Crown Jewels are kept, as are the relics of Bohemian kings, precious Christian relics, art treasures and historical documents.

Castle Private Area

Tourists are not allowed in the private area of the castle. Too bad, I am sure there are a lot of interesting things in there I wanted to see.

Prague is a magical town, its austere look makes it a bit alchemic on the dark side, in fact, a few “noir” European films were produced here, but when the sun shines, the city’s red roofs and spires designing the sky, give the impression of being in a fable book.
