Guide to vegan restaurants in Prague
For those of you who know me, know that I fell in love with Prague. Right from the cobbled bath to the breathtaking architecture. All that beer and cherry on the cake? Prague is a paradise for vegans! You will easily find vegan restaurants in Prague.
I visited Prague for 5 days in March 2019, it was part of my 22 days of Europe adventure. 3 years ago I turned vegetarian and have been discovering some of the most delicious vegetarian or vegetarian adaptations of the local delicacies. So, when I was planning my European adventure my first thought was to look for vegetarian food. Cut to me landing into Frankfurt and I see vegan options in almost all the restaurants. So, I decided to try veganism, because of sustainability.
If you are traveling to the Czech Republic don’t miss out on my list.
