The Czech Republic is a country of many traditions and customs, especially during major holidays. Czech Easter is no exception. In fact, it is one of the most popular Czech holidays among tourists.
On Easter Monday, people celebrate spring and rebirth by eating special foods. Czech Easter menu consists of several traditional dishes:
- Mazanec — yeast sweet bread with raisins and almonds,
- Easter stuffing — baked dish with smoked pork meat and spring herbs,
- Easter lamb cake — sponge cake in a shape of lamb,
- Jidáše — sweet pastry,
- Boží milosti — small crispy cookies.
Easter celebrating starts on the so-called Green Thursday. Many pubs all over the Czech republic tap green-colored beer.
Because dozens of eggs were boiled and painted for Easter, when the holiday finish, we need to eat them all. The most popular way (except simply eat boiled egg) is to make an egg spread.
