Prague markets A-Z

The most famous Prague markets are the Christmas markets and Easter markets, when the city fills with festive delights. Aside from this, Prague has two permanent markets, street vendors, occasional pop-up markets, and a flea market.

Prague Markets
The two permanent markets in Prague are: Havelske trziste in Prague 1 (city centre) and Prazska trznice in Prague 7 (a metro or tram ride from the centre).

Street vendors sell arts and crafts on Charles Bridge, along parts of the river (notably by Rudolfinum), and often at the Old Town Square and Republic Square. Plus a flea market operates every other Saturday.

Christmas markets and Easter markets are held at the Old Town Square and Wenceslas Square - where there are also occasional pop-up markets throughout the year, mostly unannounced.
Havelske trziste (Havel's Market)
Havelska Street, Prague 1.  Metro: Mustek (line A or B).
Opening times: Daily, all year round 09:00-18:00.

Havelske trziste is the city centre's permanent market and is popular with locals and tourists. The stalls sell fruit and vegetables, flowers, leather goods, arts and crafts, wooden toys and puppets, and ceramics. It is a good place to buy tourist souvenirs.

Havelske trziste is located off Melantrichova, a pedestrian route which links Wenceslas Square with the Old Town Square. It is just a few minutes walk from either square.

River embankment, near Palackeho náměstí, Prague 2.
Metro: Karlovo náměstí (line B, exit Palackeho náměstí).
Trams: 3,7,17,52 (Palackeho náměstí tram stop).
Opening times: Every second Saturday in the month, all year round 09:00-16:00.

The Prague flea market attracts Czech people mostly, with a smattering of tourist visitors browsing. From the city centre it makes for a pleasant stroll along the embankment, on the New Town side of the river.

Clothes, jewellery, old pictures and various other items sell for cheap prices. Most are second-hand, but some new hand-made goods are on offer too.
Prazska trznice (Prague market)
Bubenské nábřeží, Holešovice, Prague 7.
Metro: Vltavská (line C). Trams: 1,14,25.
Opening times: Mon-Sat, all year round: 08:00-20:00

Prague's largest outdoor market is a network of small kiosks selling an array of cheap consumer goods; portable stereos, clothes, fruit and vegetables, arts and crafts, and so forth. Prazska trznice is fairly run down is aimed at Czech people. This, combined with its location outside the city centre, makes it more of a local market with little to appeal to tourists.
