Solo holidays in the Czech Republic offer a chance to taste the cuisine
We are entering the perfect time of year to visit the Czech Republic, according to the tourism board from the country.
People deciding to travel on a solo holiday to the eastern European country should visit in Spring and early Summer, according to Alice Dvorakova, the press relations department manager for Czech Tourism.
"The varied programme of … festivals will help you to chase away that spring fatigue. Traditional fairs at castles and chateaux will take you hundreds of years back in time," she wrote.
"Stays in Czech spas will provide you with an energy boost for the whole year and festive Easter dishes will widen your gastronomic horizons."
Czech cuisine uses a lot of pork-meat, in many different ways, while potatoes are also popular. Around spring, delicacies such as nettle stuffing, sweet bread and lamb-shaped cake are popular. The cake is usually covered with a sugary or chocolate icing.
