Finding especially good shops from the big city could be sometimes
extremely hard. There are usually a lot of places to use, but
which one of them is really the best? We found a couple of very
Flora Palace in green line of Metro contains trend shops but also
places with reasonable prices. Metropolis in Zlicin in the end
of Yellow line is similar one. Clockhouse and surprisingly also
C&A turned out to be best of the individual shops. Both of
them you can find around Mustek and Vaclavske Namesti.
One of us found his personal treasure house from Levné
Knihy bookstores. One of them you can find from shopping centre
Eden that lies via tramline 22 near stop Slavia
The group of hiking shops locates in Na Perštýne street
near to the Tesco Supermarket. There is e.g. big store of RockPoint,
where you can find everything from climbing to city walks.
Bookstores like Kanzelsberger and NeoLuxor in Vaclavske Namesti
are perhaps the best places to look after books in English.
Dance and Jump in Milady Horákové street in Holesovice
is not the cheapest one, but there you can find everything necessary.
Maps and Travel Guides
Kiwi and Adventure in Jungmannova street are together maybe the
most destructive thing to my wallet. There you can find all maps
from pocket size to big wall sheets. Moreover there is different
travel guides from almost every country in the world.
You can find almost everything from Tesco in Narodni Trida or
Carrefour in Eden. But keep a distance to food department of Tesco.
It is always full of people and because of that very anguishing
In personally I would take a car and drive for example to Novy
Bor to buy crystals directly from factory shops or glass makers,
but if you don’t have enough time for that, go to the “factory
shop” of Chrystalex in Malé Námésti
square. It has most reasonable prices and best products.
