Sweet tooth

Czechs have an undeniable sweet tooth, especially when it comes to desserts.

Fat diet

For centuries the Czechs have been known for their high-fat diet. However, the cooking is becoming lighter and healthier, particularly in the big cities.


Seafood is served infrequently, mainly because the country is landlocked. However, pond-raised fresh water fish is widely available. Fresh-water carp is the traditional Christmas Eve dish.


Most Czechs eat their main meal at midday, followed by a light supper in the early evening.


Caraway seeds, marjoram and garlic are prevalent seasonings in Czech cuisine.


Germany, Austria and Hungary have noticeably influenced Czech cuisine, but its style remains Czech.
