  • Winter is in full swing, with Czech mountains, including the Krkonoše Mountains (Giant Mountains) featuring optimal snow conditions for both winter sports as well as strolls in snowy nature. Attractive for ski lovers, winter in Krkonoše Mountains offers pleasures also for gourmets fond of tasting regional specialties – and there is definitely a lot to be offered in the region of the highest Czech Mountains. Should you visit the area, do not miss some of local specialties, or you might as well prepare it yourself. Krkonoše sejkory, regional variety of potato pancakes spread with lard or melted butter before serving, are an example of a simple and tasty meal. Škubánky, also called kucmoch, are traditional local sweet dish. To prepare it, just boil the potatoes, sprinkle with flour, pour over some water and mix to make solid and smooth dough. Using a spoon soaked in melted lard, cut out rounded shapes and sprinkle with poppy seeds or with quark and powdered sugar. Yeast blueberry dumplings with quark and sugar are typically offered on mountain restaurants menus. Špecle (gnocchi) with smoked meat, cabbage and fried onion is another regional delicacy, to be tasted for example at Richtrovy boudy close to Pec pod Sněžkou. Krkonošské kyselo, thick soup with sourdough and mushroom, is a real treasure of the Krkonoše Mountains cuisine. You can either prepare it yourself using our recipe, or order it in a number of Czech Specials certified restaurants, including Friesovy Boudy Mountain Hotel located in picturesque surroundings close to Strážný.
