Spending your Christmas in the Czech Republic? Would you like to eat typical Czech Christmas dish as well? Today, we are going to learn how to make a typical Czech Christmas dinner. Some Czechs don’t like carp so they would prefer to make a fried schnitzel instead, either chicken or pork. So lets go make your own Czech Christmas dinner! What do you need? – Carp fillets (chicken or pork steak) – Flour (use the one that is called Hladká mouka) – Eggs (raw for the schnitzel and 1 boiled egg for the salad) – Breadcrumbs – Pickles – Onion (lightly boiled or steamed) – Potatoes (whole boiled and peeled potatoes) – Carrots – Peas, corn (not necessary) – Mayo
Zizkov tunnel is a pretty interesting find if you haven’t heard or known about it before. This tunnel connects the two districts of Zizkov and Karlin. Although it may seem sketchy to enter at first, don’t sweat it. The tunnel is about 300 meters long and depending on where you live, it can be faster to just walk through the tunnel than to catch the metro between these two areas. This is a pedestrian and bike-only tunnel. You won’t have to worry about dodging cars – maybe just segways and skateboards. Once you exit the Karlin side, there are a bunch of nice restaurants, pubs, cafes and offices. It’s a bustling neighbourhood and district to walk around if you have time.
You or may not have noticed that some metro station platforms are cooler than others. After being here for 3 years I’ve made mental notes on some of my favourite stops, and now it’s time to share them with you. 1. One of the first to mention has to be Namesti Miru — I also think that this ranks amongst everyone’s favourite metro stations in Prague. Why? Because of the turquoise and cool ocean colors, the name (Namesti Miru – I mean that’s already cool – it means peaceful square), and the fact that it’s one of the deepest tunnels underground in the city. That’s why it always takes forever to rise up to the top on those never-ending escalators.
