New Years Eve in Prague

The year is about to end and I’m spending the last days of it in Prague, the beautiful gothic capital of Czech Republic. Since it’s also the last day of the decade, we might as well go out with a bang. And what better way than the herbal bitter Becherovka, a classic Czech brew.

It is slightly reminiscent of the Melnais Balzam, a weird brew I had in Latvia. But as with many things in this country, twice as lethal at half the price.

To you all, a Happy New Year and Na Zdraví!
