Top Five Burgers in Prague – 2016

As all eastern European countries, Prague was also ruled by the communist party,  so burger restaurants were almost nonexistent in the city. After the fall of the communist regime, cultural gates were suddenly open to the newest trends, so Prague was introduced at the first time to McDonald’s, but very soon it was realized that their burgers were far from being the best of burgers. The real burger blast occurred in 2010 when a new generation of young and enthusiastic burger lovers started opening new restaurants offering great burger combos with delicious dish sides and a variety of new toppings.
When I started my own research for the top 5 burgers I must try on my trip to Prague, I was amazed by the long list of recommended places that serving dreamy burgers, which made it really difficult for me to crate the perfect wish list. So I narrowed my search according to the highest ranking and the served food. My purpose was to find those places that specializing mainly in burgers and their companions.  So after a profound online research I can finally share my top 5 flavorite burger places in Prague I would love to try.
