Prague is and will always be simply wonderful
. Those who suffer from coeliac disease certainly don’t come all the way here to enjoy the delights of the Bohemian cuisine based on breads. The city and its culinary scene are more open than ever
, more internaitonal and thus potentially gluten-free.
During the Communist period, Prague was protected for 40 years from the excesses of mass tourism. Now the city, with its perfectly restored medieval center has become one of the most popular destinations in Europe
. There is no time during the year when you won’t find a crowd of tourists on the Charles Bridge. The excellent air and rail connections make Prague a perfect destination even for a short trip. At least once in your life it is worth traveling
to this metropolis, that will seduce you with the classical Castle walks and winding alleys with their haphazard paving. In Prague tradition and modernity find a perfect balance.
However, it is impossible to deny: the Czech Republic is a difficult country, especially for those who have to follow a diet that is varied, light and capable of satisfying special needs. Coeliacs do not have a better time than those who voluntarily follow a dietetic regime that is incomprehensible to Czech tastes, such as vegetarians, for example. The local specialties feature dumplings of all kinds, and lots of meat and even it is usually breaded
. The traditional Bohemian regional cuisine combined with the ever-present Czech beer is therefore largely off-limits for those who suffer from gluten intolerance and are allergic to grain. The advantageous prices with respect to the rest of Europe continue to attract crowds of young tourists, students and visitors from all over the world.
For this reason, in addition to the typical taverns, there are more and more alternative and international restaurants and bars.
Those who don’t feel secure with the complicated Czech pronunciation must remember to use preprinted travel cards and carry a set with them at all times. Independent tourists can find a growing list of food products for coeliacs at grocery chains like DM.
