“Best wee shop in Prague”

Fascinating wee shop just under the Charles Bridge. This place is the real deal - I splashed out and blew the rest of my holiday money on a hand carved/hand painted marionette. However there are puppets to suit all budgets.

I've posted a pic of him too :)

This is the authentic marionette shop in Prague. Truly handmade and one of a kind puppets in all forms and characters. The clerk told us a little bit about the more popular ones and gave some history of them. This is right off the Charles Bridge and well worth the stop to visit and maybe take one home!

Variety of toys. Reasonable price. As I saw a toy crane they are selling for 480 CZK and exactly the same toy somewhere in old town for 800 CZK.

I believe there are 2 stores, one close to the bridge and another one. This is apparently the only company and store that has true artist puppets and true Czech style ones, the rest are cheaper made and geared towards tourists.
Prices are quite reasonable, everything is one of a kind. Staff friendly and speak good English. Cant wait to visit again when I go back. Also as a marionette collector I contacted the staff by email and they were very helpful although I didnt buy online from them just yet!

they have strange hours so you might have to go back, i had to go 2 or 3 times to get inside. they have all sizes and prices of marionettes, but what i wanted was a small family of elephants made of czech newspaper, which i got for a great place. they wrapped them carefully for travel.
