Call me old-fashioned, but Prague always says "cut-glass" to me.

Beer brand coasters. They come free when you order one of those wonderful Czech beers.

Get the largest bottle you feel like carrying home. You'll be glad you did. I only brought 1 litre back, it was gone within weeks (my freinds helped a lot) and I still wish I had brought back more...

I was watching Samantha Brown the other night and she was in Prague. She went into an unbelievable glass shop. Just an incredible amount of glass of all kinds and the prices were great. So, glass seems to be the thing for sure.

I once had a relative bring us this beautiful cut glass from Prague (they were from there). It was colorful, and from what I gathered, not something that was easy to get. Then one of our cats acting like a bowling ball while we were away and knocked the pieces down.

They were really beautiful, though - and definitely what I think about when I think of Prague.

Staropramen.

Cut glass is just boiled up sand. But a decent glass of beer...

Unless you have a cat, the cut glass will last longer than beer.

I was in Prague about 1é years ago and the found the most beautiful hand cut wooden puppets - one of their specialties. There are a lot 'industrial-looking puppets but if you search for the real thing you may find something really nice (and very decorative hanging with their strings against a wall) I bought a kitchen chef and a violin player they are great.
