Being in Olomouc we had to try traditional mixture of beer and Zelena, green peppermint liquor. I need to say that the mix of these two tastes was really unexpected and interesting. 
The town, just like the whole Czechia is famous of beer, so the visit in Czeska Hospoda - Czech pub was obligatory for us.

Next day in Czechia we spent in beautiful Štramberk. It is the westernmost town of Lemkos. The tribe of Lemkos arrived here around 13-14th century and they were given just one hill to settle, so that is why the architecture of this place is so extraordinary and so charming at the same time.

On Štramberks main square you can obviously try Czech beer or have a coffee, but the most important place is bakery. The bakery is making only Štramberks Ears, confectionery product made of cone-shaped gingerbread.
According to the local legend, this sweet is connected to Mongol invasion in 1241, when the enemy army laid the camp at the foot of the nearby Kotouč Hill. According to the legend, the local inhabitants dug the pond after a night storm and flooded the camp. As the water went down, in the place they found the bags of salted human ears that the Mongols used to cut off from Christians and sent them to their khan. Supposedly to commemorate this event, on the eve of Feast of the Ascension, the people baked this candy sweetened with honey and flavored with a secret mixture of spices.

"I would rather be in Venice on a rainy day, than in other capital on fine one." said writer Herman Melville in 1857. Venice is incomparable, is one of the most unusual places in the world, is one of a kind.
