Gifts from Prague
A few tips of what you can bring back home from Prague and the Czech Republic.
Wooden toys and traditional marionettes: These very nice (and reasonably priced) traditional Czech toys can be found everywhere. The Havelska market in Prague is a good place to start. Puppets can sometimes be expensive, but are often also really gorgeous and intricate.
Ceramics and pottery: Many shops in Prague, especially tourist-oriented souvenir stores, sell these items. Maliř ceramics, produced near Slavonice, are very beautiful and quite different from others. There is a shop in the Lucerna Gallery that sells Maliř ceramics.
Botanicus: Natural beauty products, made in the Czech Republic . Tasteful design and packaging, a perfect gift for someone who enjoys relaxing with fine scents or handmade soaps. Several shops in Prague: info here.
Bohemian crystal: This inexpensive but very beautiful glassware can be found throughout Prague and Bohemia. Items made from Bohemian Crystal include all types of glasses, vases and jewellery. Very modern and coloured glassware made from crystal are available at the famous Blue Praha in Prague.
