I love the picture above that my friends at Wise Monkeys Abroad took. I love how the focal point – the taxi – peeks through the trdelnik. You do know what a trdelnik is, don’t you? Don’t worry – I had to look it up, too.
Trdelniks are pastries made of dough that is wrapped around a cylinder and roasted. They are often sold hot with a dusting of cinnamon, sugar, and nuts. While they are enjoyed in Europe, can you narrow down the country in which the Wise Monkeys Abroad enjoyed them?
Here are some clues:
- The country is a landlocked country almost entirely surrounded by mountains.
- This country has the highest per capita consumption of beer. The country also has the highest number of beds per inhabitant in the European Union. Coincidence?
- There are over 2,000 castles, including some in ruins. In this country you will find the largest ancient castle in the world by area (70,000 m²).
- The country was a communist country for 41 years until the Velvet Revolution in 1989.
- Because winter is long and cold, meals in this country are hearty and filling. Meals are centered around meats and starches.
What country was this trdelnik enjoyed?
