We Czechs love sweet and the specialty of Czech cuisine is sweet warm dishes. Yes – instead of meat or pasta (or another “normal salty” dish), we love to eat full plate of fruit dumplings or buns with vanilla sauce (custard). :-)

Summer is back and the ice cream season is here. The Czechs love ice cream, but sincerely, comparing to other European countries to find a really good one it has been lately quite a problem. I must say that I personally did not eat ice cream too much. The reason was that there simply had not existed the ice cream that I really liked - except one that I slightly remember from my childhood. They sold it by Orlik Castle where we used to go for a trip with my family and it had creamy vanilla pudding taste. My good experience with ice cream was therefore limited on my visits abroad (I mean towards West). I still remember my first ice cream there – it was in Munich, Germany, I was 10 years old and I picked up a cherry flavor.  I was really surprised by two things – firstly by its taste (with real pieces of fruit!!!) and also by its size (not just extra mini scoop as back home). And I am not talking about my first meeting with the real pistachio ice cream in Italy (I was always afraid to try in Czech R. due to its very, but very green color). But back to present days. The situation with ice cream became much, much better, you can find places with really tasty and good quality ice cream. Here we go with tips for, according to our opinion, the best ice cream places in the city.
