Last summer while walking around Prague we came upon a cute little pastry shop in the city center. As it always is with pastries, we couldn’t resist and ducked in for a quick bite. After looking at many delectable delicacies, we decided to settle on the WORLD FAMOUS CZECH TRDLO. … more »
Welcome to “the old continent”!
With its imposing buildings, cities full of history, traditions that infuse a little bit of all the cultures that have come and gone… We want to find out the differences between countries that are similar on the surface but have a lot of personality in the little details.
