Trekking across the Charles Bridge and up the hill towards the Prague Castle called for a little snack. We happened upon this little stand, just behind the St. Nicolas Cathedral and right across from a giant Starbucks, and were intrigued. We watched as they rolled dough, wrapped it around a cylindrical spit, baked it and then dipped into sugar and nut mixture. I was sold. A fresh, warm Trdelník and cup of mulled wine was the perfect thing on a cold, snowy day. I watched the hoards of tourists filing into the Starbucks and wondered - why?
