World Cuisine Wednesday

One of our destinations that is steadily growing in popularity is Prague, Czech Republic. This lovely place is considered to be one of the most beautiful cities in the world.  Unlike other cities in that particular region of Europe, the majority of Prague’s landmarks, structures and ancient buildings were untouched by the ravages of  World War II. To this day, it is one of the best preserved cities in all of Europe.

If you ever get a chance to take a trip to Prague, do not turn it down! It is not only a great place to visit for fun, but the visit itself is also a learning experience. One of the sightseeing activities we offer is a guided walking tour called Discovering Prague.  During this tour, you can visit  the oldest and most interesting monuments and buildings of the city and learn about the most important sites in the historical city center.

This week’s recipe is for Beef and Pepper Goulash and it comes from the heart of the Czech Republic.
