Prague Markets

If you want to buy something different or save some money, try Prague’s markets. Some markets sell just fruit and vegetables; others target tourists and sell handicrafts etc. They might seem a bit tacky, but there is goodies to be found, sometimes quite interesting stuff. You can find many markets around tourist spots as well.

Havelský Trh

(Havel’s Market). A very popular market, located on a short street that runs perpendicular to Melantrichova, connects Old Town Square with Wenceslas Square (metro station Mustek, Prague 1). Most vendors sell seasonal home-grown fruits, vegetables, wooden toys, Czech crystal, jewellery, honey and flowers.
