    WILD ROSE SHOP: GLASSWARE

    by balhannah Written Aug 10, 2013

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Did you know the Czech Republic produces some of the finest glassware in the World. I guess I soon gathered that, as around the city were many shops selling Bohemian Crystal cut into vases, bowls, animals, birds and other incredible designs. I really like the glassware but decided it was to risky to buy and take home via a long flight.
    The shop in my photo had some interesting pieces.

    LIPPERT GARDEN: ENJOY AN ICE-CREAM

    by balhannah Written Aug 1, 2013

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    In the Old Town Square, food and drinks seemed to be double the price to elsewhere. Of course, this is because it is a tourist area.

    Well, I found an Ice-cream stall in the Old Town Square with lots of Ice-cream flavours, and best of all, the price was good!
    So this is one food you can buy without being ripped off!

    V UNGELTU: PUPPET SHOP

    by balhannah Written Jul 28, 2013

    4 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Wicked Witch was standing outside the door of this tiny shop! Thank-goodness she wasn't real - but she was enough to make me venture inside.

    After passing through the entrance, I turned left into the shop.

    It was wow! My eyes lit up, perhaps I was a child again, I certainly felt like one, only not in a lolly shop, but a Puppet shop. This shop was tiny and it was crammed full of Puppets of every size and description you can imagine. It was wonderful!
    I did buy some dolls here and asked the kind lady if I could take photo's - she said yes. She was so nice and helpful and wrapped up my gifts very well so they wouldn't be broken

    If you want to see Puppet's, then do come here, you won't be able to make up your mind which to buy!

    Opening hours: Every day 10 am-8 pm

    FARMER'S MARKET: BUY SOME TRADITIONAL FOOD

    by balhannah Updated Jul 26, 2013

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    We didn't know this Market was on, just chanced upon it. It is called a "farmer's market," but there are gifts, flowers, plants, beautiful embroidered table cloths and art & crafts for sale. If your feeling a bit peckish, food was cooked and available.
    I did buy a nice piece of Czech craft to bring home as a gift, unique and quite a good price!
    The sets of armour I just looked at and didn't make an offer!

    The Market is open from Tuesday to Friday from 9am - 6pm.

    Shopping in Prague, CZ

    by TrendsetterME Written Jul 11, 2013

    The L-shaped half mile running from the middle of Wenceslas Square around the corner to the right on Na Príkope and to the Palladium Shopping Center on Námestí Republiky has become Prague's principal shopping hub. In this short distance you'll find several multilevel shopping gallerias, with foreign chains like H&M, Next, Kenvelo, Pierre Cardin, Adidas, and Zara. Between the centers is a wide array of boutiques and antiques shops.

    The narrow streets are fun to get lost, just dont make any plan or use a map, just stroll around and am sure u will find many interesting gifts to buy for your own taste ... :)

    The wide, tree-lined Parízská, from Old Town Square to the Hotel Inter-Continental, has become Prague's answer to L.A.'s Rodeo Drive, filled with top-end luxury names like Cartier, Hermes, Louis Vuitton, Hugo Boss, and Prada. Along the streets running off of Parízská, many of the best Czech designers have set up shop.

    In the streets radiating off Old Town Square, particularly Celetná and Dlouhá, you'll find many of the city's best outlets for glass, porcelain, and jewelry. Indeed, Celetná has evolved into Prague's "glass alley". Karlova, the street that connects the Old Town Square to Charles Bridge, is the place to go for cheap souvenirs.

    Craft markets in the New Town: Excellent quality local crafts

    by CatherineReichardt Updated Jun 12, 2013

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    There are a couple of street markets in the New Town which offer an excellent and affordable range of crafts (and an encouragingly small proportion of mass produced rubbish).

    What to buy: I particularly like the wooden items, particularly the children's puzzles and toys: I bought an entire wooden train set when I visited there during my first pregnancy which I lugged around in my backpack for the rest of the trip, but then had to wait nearly four years for a son to do it justice, as my elder child turned out to be a girl!

    Another item that I love are the beautiful hand painted Easter eggs which are decorated in many styles from the traditional to the geometric and even the modernistic. Being a multicultural family with a particular weakness for German festival traditions, we celebrate Easter with an Easter branch, on which we display the various eggs that we've collected on our travels through Eastern and Central Europe. It might sound like madness to travel with eggs, but we have found them surprisingly robust - packed in a conventional eggbox - and (here's tempting fate!), have yet to suffer a breakage in transit!

    Indulge your newfound classical tendencies

    by CatherineReichardt Updated Jun 12, 2013

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Prague has an uncanny ability to nurture 'culture vulture' tendencies in even the most uncultured of tourists. It is endearing to note that many visitors who would never dream of darkening the door of a concert hall in their home country will flock to one of the large number of classical concerts that are held on a daily basis in Prague, lured by a combination of the beautiful historical venues, affordable ticket prices and programmes of popular classics.

    One of the staples of the concert circuit is the moving 'Ma Vlast' ('My Homeland'), by the 'Father of Czech Music', and Prague's adopted son, Bedrich Smetana. Smetana was a giant of the Czech cultural scene in the second half of the nineteenth century, and his immense legacy is celebrated in the Bedrich Smetana Museum, now part of the Czech Museum of Music. This is housed (somewhat prosaically) in the former waterworks by the banks of the Vltava - appropriate given that Ma Vlast takes Czech rivers as its theme, but hardly a romantic choice of location!

    Ma Vlast is a series of six symphonic poems, one of which is dedicated to the Vltava River. So, particularly if you have attended a concert in Prague, what better memento to bring back with you than a CD of this beautiful work?

    Tourist shops: Matrioshka dolls of Russian leaders

    by CatherineReichardt Updated Jun 12, 2013

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Ever since my parents bought me one when they visited the then Soviet Union at the height of the Afghan crisis in 1980, I have harboured a childlike (or was that childish?) passion for matrioshka dolls. So I was in my element when I first visited Prague because it's absolutely full of them!

    The one that caught my eye was a marvellous set of dolls in the image of successive Soviet/Russian leaders. The outermost doll is a superb depiction of Boris Yeltsin looking dyspeptic, followed (in size order) by Gorbachev, Brezhnev, Kruschev, Stalin, Lenin and finally poor little Czar Nicholas who got gobbled up by the wicked Communists! Clearly Andropov and Chernenko didn't make the cut, but honestly, could you have really picked either of them out of a lineup anyway?

    The set is an absolute work of art, and the caricatures are astonishingly vivid. It is one of my more treasured possessions and has added virtue as asking people to correctly identify them also makes a superb after dinner game (particularly when you have some smart aleck guests in attendance)!

    Have I ever been able to find a similar set on my subsequent visits - well, of course not! Which is a terrible pity, since the beady-eyed, weasel-faced action man Putin has to be a caricaturist's dream ...

    Souvenir Shopping

    by GentleSpirit Updated Oct 27, 2012

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    You will have no shortage of places to buy a souvenir of your visit to Prague. For some reason, it seemed that Russians were running a lot of the stores, i don't know. Around Wenceslas Square you can probably find most of what you need in the way of tshirts and that sort of thing, prices are fairly similar from store to store.

    I found the store that Charles University bookstore is very good. I bought some great calendars of Prague there.

    note- DVD's that I got in Prague worked perfectly here in the States!

    Swarovski Boutique: The finer things in life

    by BLewJay Updated Aug 24, 2012

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    As we were walking through Old Town, we happened to run across the Swarovski Boutique. We stopped in to see what they had (we had done he same when in Salzburg a few years ago). LJ found a beautiful ring, so we ended up purchasing the item. The product in Swarovski is always nice and they even had a small section for men (watches, cufflinks, etc.) All in all, a great place and customer service was top notch.

    What to buy: Jewelry, watches, gifts, etc.

    What to pay: Depends on what you buy
