“Liquid bread of our nation”
If something Prague and the whole Czech Republic is really known of, that’s probably drinking beer. Prague has a proud brewing history and you just won’t leave it without tasting the “liquid bread of our nation”. Moreover, beer is even cheaper than water and soft drinks in pubs. You can get a glass of beer from 1 to 2 € almost anywhere around Prague. So cheers to that!
