Ethnographic criterion Trdelník is often presented as traditional Czech pastry, which is somewhat misleading. There are traditional regional forms and trdelník is known within the culinary culture of the Czech Republic, however, the pastry originates from Székely Land, Transylvania.
Cultural-historical criterion Trdelnik pastries can be found in cities like Prague and other popular Czech destinations and are often offered at various markets or festive events. The trdelnik pastry is made by wrapping dough around a stick (wooden or metal) and roasting it over an open flame until it is golden brown and fully cooked. Usually, it is possible to watch part of the process of trdelnik making when you purchase the pastry- the vendors often sell from open stalls along the street or in squares and make the pastries fresh. Sometimes they are served with traditional sugar-and-nut topping; other times a variety of toppings can be chosen from.
