The Czech Republic take pride in the celebrations and drinking pubs. Each bar typically only offers 1 draft on tap (along with some of the more common beers in a bottle like bud light) so you may be trying out several different places until you find your drink of choice. However, while you are making the rounds it would be good to learn how to say cheers in Czech so you can mingle with the locals and toast to each other.
Na Zdravi (pronouned: nah z-drah-vee) – Before you can start enjoying your beer, it’s important to give a cheers to everyone at the table as you make eye contact with them. Just like other countries, there is an omen of 7 years of bad luck or 7 years of bad sex if you don’t follow this guideline. We aren’t saying this will happen, but if you take the time and give good eye contact it can only help your chances. Na Zdravi means “to your health” and is the most popular sign of toasting one another. The only other rule to consider while doing a cheers is to not cross arms with anyone else. This can be a challenge as you stare them in the eyes, but again it’s worth giving your best effort to avoid bad sex for the next 7 years.
The Czech Republic are huge fans of beer so if you have a craving for a good craft brew, this is the country for you. Not to mention their prices are ridiculously cheap (about 60 cents U.S to enjoy a beverage)
