This blacksmith was demonstrating his skills, and selling his wares on the old town square on the Monday of our trip. Interesting to watch him working while enjoying a traditional trdelnik with ice cream from one of the market stalls.

I usually don`t buy any souvenirs during my trips cuz I believe it`s nonsense. This shop made me buy the genuine art. I was really surprised they presented their art in front of me in the blacksmith. I truly can feel the soul of my new amulet. Nice stuff. I`ll definitely come back. Thank You!

Staying in Stare Mesto (Old Town)

Neighbourhood Profile
Stare Mesto (Old Town)
One of the oldest neighbourhoods in town represents the medieval heart of Prague. It’s no surprise it is bustling with tourists every time of day. Križovnický square, overlooking Charles Bridge with Prague Castle in the background, is probably the most beautiful square in the city. Its unique historical atmosphere of gothic houses and churches, cobblestone streets and squares, and stone towers blend together with the modern era. A vast array of bars, restaurants, dance clubs, international brand shops, galleries and hotels bring life to the old city. With its charming and picturesque cobblestone streets, the nightlife and parties will surely be unforgettable.
