CitySpy: Wurst of Times for Prague Sausage Vendors

Original source: CitySpy Prague

PRAGUE – Municipal officials have let the leases on their stalls expire, revoked their licences and imposed fines, but sausage vendors in the Czech capital’s historic centre refuse to go away.

Stepping out into the bustling Wenceslas Square tourists hear the noise of the crowd, drink in the medieval architecture of one of Europe’s most beautiful cities and are followed everywhere by the pungent smell of pork frying in stalls just steps from the statue of the Republic’s patron Saint Wenceslas.
