Flea Markets

Everyone who enjoys travelling has had an experience like this. You set out to take a look around the city and all you see are kitsch souvenirs in the shop windows. If you wish to bring something a little more original home from the Czech Republic, flea markets are what you need! Clothing, costume jewellery, food, books, pictures… basically anything you can think of. And if you like curios, then this is just the place to find some.

Experienced visitors to these markets would advise three basic rules to keep your head at a flea market and snag the best items.

  1. Get up early. The markets begin early in the morning and if you don’t want to have to push your way through crowds of people and have a chance at finding some real gems, this is the best time.
  2. Wear comfortable clothing. You never know how long you will stay at a flea market. The biggest market in Prague on U Elektry takes several hours to see it all.
  3. Don’t be afraid to haggle. Sellers frequently set a higher price, so definitely haggle for the best price.
