Honza Mikulka & Janek Rubeš, the team behind the popular YouTube channel Stream International, have made a name for themselves by exposing Prague frauds like dishonest taxi drivers, ripoff exchange offices, and money changing street scammers in their Honest Guide series.
But this week, they’re providing a different kind of service for viewers – especially those in the Czech capital during the summer months.
Prague is heating up at the moment, with weather stations around the Czech capital registering yearly highs over the past ten days.
And this week, Prague’s Honest Guide dishes out on where to get the best ice cream in Prague. Just in case you missed the city’s timely ice cream festival yesterday in Holešovice.
In central Prague, there’s no shortage of ice cream stands & shops. But these are the best of the best, say the Honest Guide:
Angelato: Prague’s long-reigning ice cream champ now has two locations, with an Újezd shop joining the popular original venue off of Havelský trh.
A note of caution about both Angelato locations: the word has long been out, so expect long (but fast-moving) lines.
Créme de la Créme: located on Husova street, just a few blocks from Old Town Square.
Ovocný Světozor: a Czech classic! Many locations throughout Prague, but a flagship in the central Světozor passage.
Míša! Another classic treat, pick up a bar in any market around Prague for a mere 12 CZK or so. And because Míša is made with low-fat tvaroh, take comfort in the fact that your treat is (slightly) more healthy.
We’ve gotta add just one item to Honest Guide’s list, however: PURO Gelato, located right next to Prague’s popular summertime hangout at the Náplavka embankment.
The lines at PURO can be extremely long on hot days, but we think they rival Angelato as the best ice cream in Prague.
Where’s your favorite ice cream in the Czech capital?
