Dog Breeds of the Czech Republic
The bond between owner and pet is like no other—they’re our companions, always along for the ride no matter what ups and downs life brings. They show us joy and make us laugh, and even listen to us like they know exactly what we’re saying. As the expression goes, a dog is a man’s best friend—and...
Czechs and their Poppy Seeds

It was inexpensive, had a very nice shape, and it was easy to open, close and cut. Fancier multi-blade knives with additional equipment came much later. The so-called “Rybička”...
Czech Retro Potato Salad by Tres Bohemes
During the times of Soviet Rule in Czechoslovakia, most everything came with standards and protocol, including the way Czech chefs were to prepare Vlašský salát, or what we’re calling Czech retro potato salad for the sake of today’s post. While this salad has been around much longer than times of the CSSR, and older Czech...
The White Disease
A virus that first appeared in China, spread by shaking hands, putting the elderly at risk. The Czechoslovak film The White Disease (1937) evokes current headlines, but uses the epidemic primarily as a perspective on war and dictatorship. Bílá nemoc (The White Disease – as in leprosy) is a play written by Czech novelist Karel...
