TOP 15 design shops & galleries in Prague: ultimate Prague design guide

Just steps away from the tourist souvenir shops and big brand stores, you’ll find Prague is home to a flourishing design scene with Czech-made products to suit every taste and budget. Over recent years, entrepreneurial design graduates have been quietly building vibrant, diverse and affordable alternatives to mainstream shopping, with boutiques, ateliers and workshops in the city centre and surrounding suburbs.

PART 1: Central Design District

The streets that link two architectural gems of Prague - Dancing House, designed by Frank Gehry and Vlado Milunić, and the monumental National Theatre designed by Josef Zítek and Josef Schulz, are great for an afternoon of exploring by foot. Running along the Nove Mesto side of the Vltava River, dotted with galleries, churches and cafes, there is plenty on offer for all kinds of shoppers, whether you’re looking for something special to add to your wardrobe, something to brighten up your home or something more original than the ‘made in china’ souvenir from your trip. Continue further and you’ll pass the famous Old Town Square and Obecní dům. This whole route can be easily walked within a couple of hours, or you can always jump on a tram.
