Summers in Prague can be oppressive with highs climbing to near 35 degrees Celsius on occasion.
Especially in the past few years, as the Czech Republic has been getting more tropical weather from the South. But where to go for great ice cream in Prague?
So, here is the top list of my favorite places. They are not in any particular order as I like them all and I buy from one place or another depending on what flavors they have that day and where exactly I’m in Prague at the time.
