Prague was never going to be on a par with London or New York for shopping, but even though the centre of Prague is now full of new, shiny shopping malls full of international high street chains. But there are still some local shops worth searching out.
Where to Shop? The majority of shops are situated directly in the centre of Prague in Wenceslas Square, Národní třída, Vinohradská and Pařížská Street in close vicinity to the Old Town Square. Prague also has several big markets where you can buy practically everything and much cheaper.
What souvenir to buy? The Czech Republic is traditionally known worldwide for its production of glass and porcelain. These can make very nice gifts at reasonable prices. Other suggestions for what to buy include Czech handicrafts, ceramics, Czech garnets and antiques. Prague has dozens of antiquarian book shops that can yield some excellent finds. Many second-hand shops have interesting supplies of brooches, mirrors, brooches etc.
