City Escapes Czech Republic Europe Food & Drink

Food, Coffee and Street Art in Cesky Krumlov

Ahoj‘ & welcome to another Czech instalment of Kaptain Kenny.

Well I already said it about Prague but I think Cesky Krumlov takes the cake. This is officially THE cutest little town in Europe. If you haven’t been to Cesky Krumlov you’ve already missed out.

The locals are friendly, the food is good and it’s relatively inexpensive compared to the likes of more western cities.

Come on a journey below and see the side to Cesky Krumlov that you probably won’t see in your guide books. Surprisingly, this town has a cute little street full of artwork, graffiti and it made for the perfect photos.

Thanks for reading and enjoy!

Deary me – Cesky Krumlov you’re amazing.

The beginning of your street art journey in Cesky Krumlov….

To get to this street, head in the direction of the Egon Schiele Art Centre on Široká street. From here you should be able to find the little winding alleyway from the pictures below with the street art.

In such a fairytale village, I’m sure you didn’t expect to see a street like this.

Ideal Coffee

If you’re feeling like a caffeine hit, you’re best off heading to “Ideal Coffee” which roasts its own beans. I’m a coffee addict so I always order a double shot. The owner of the cafe was one of the loveliest strangers I’ve ever met – she really made me feel like I was at her home. We chatted about life, travel and culture for quite a while. Thanks Katarina!

And behind the counter, her other employee “Julie” the dog from the U.S is working very hard on being cute!

After having coffee, take the quiet, winding streets and you’ll come across more quirky street art!

Waiting for the bus?

Trdelniks – the Czech version of a doughnut. It’s a mixture between bread and dough, rolled in sugar. Filled with ice-cream. And cream. As if it wasn’t gluttonous enough. These are sold all over town.

2 Marys Tavern: medieval Bohemian food

http://www.2marie.cz/

Eat like a king here and grab the Bohemian feast for 1-6 people. Also be sure to try the homemade hot wine with honey and cinnamon.

What our predecessors used to eat

“The formation of Bohemia also gave rise to traditional Bohemian foods. The basic foods were millet, honey, eggs, legumes, milk, cabbage, mushrooms and fruits. Salt was also widely in use. One of the most important foods of our predecessors was black bread. The chronicler Kosrnas mentioned bread with cheese as the basic meal of working men. He also describes milk, sour milk or buttermilk.”
