Shopping

Prague was never going to be on a par with London, Milan, or New York when it comes to shopping. But even so, the centre of Prague is full of new, shiny shopping malls with international high street chains. And if you venture off the main streets you will find various local shops, mainly selling traditional Czech glass and porcelain, handicrafts, ceramics, Czech garnets and antiques, definitely worth visiting.
