Petr Synek can tell you -- with the help of his beautiful Weimaraner, Nela. For the past two years, the two of them have been hunting truffles. Petr, a parasitology Ph.D. candidate at Charles University, started truffle hunting as a side business to supplement his academic work. His canine companion Nela is an excellent example of the traditional Czech expertise in dog training, which you will see firsthand as she bounds through the trees hunting for treasure.
On this tour, you will see some of the beautiful parks and gardens that Prague has to offer as Petr shows you how Nela was trained to seek out delicious, expensive fungi. You will learn about the biology and history of truffles in Europe, including right here in the Czech Republic. Best of all for foodies, you'll get to taste them yourself at a classic Czech restaurant near the Vltava in a dish prepared just for you using truffles from Petr's own stash.
If you're tired of wading through the crowds on Charles Bridge and eating tourist fare in Old Town, come walk off the beaten path and discover the funky -- and delicious -- world of truffles in Prague.
