You won’t find typical outdoor antique markets in Prague, but there are many antique shops to make up for it. Whether you’re looking for fine antiques or casual, entry-level collectables, there are plenty of places to explore in town. Here are five of the best.

Loved by over 40s

Bric and Brac Antiques

Bric and Brac is the closest to an antique market you’ll find in Prague. Although the shop is exclusively an indoor operation, the entire setup looks very much like a relaxed outdoor venture. There are tables here and there, random vintage toys posing next to communist pins and propaganda signs from the 60s. Bric and Brac is not a high-end store, but it’s definitely a step above a flea market. If you’re looking from a glimpse into the Czech past, this is the place.

Antique Ahasver

This small, unassuming shop hides treasures you won’t find anywhere else. In fact, Ahasver is famous for its large selection of traditional folk clothing, antique brooches and, strangely enough, a vast selection of hand and machine embroidered antique tablecloths. This is also a great place to find antique garnet jewelry.

Antique Andrle

If you’re looking for a piece of Moser glass to take home with you rather than try one of the many shops and galleries in town, you can come here for some vintage glass. When shopping here, start at their bottom floor, which has a large section of discounted merchandise. Andrle also has many cubist and baroque items, which are harder to find in other stores around town.

Antikvita

One of Prague’s oldest antique stores, Antikvita specializes in vintage, antique and costume jewelry. If you’re looking for authentic garnet (Czechia’s “official” stone), gold antique watches, gold and silver coins and even diamonds, make this your first stop. Antikvita is also unique because they sell items you aren’t likely to find in other antique stores, especially old toys, vintage cameras and miniatures. If you’re lucky, you might also stumble on an antique desk or a few surprising examples of vintage snuff boxes. Make sure you leave plenty of time for your visit, the owners are knowledgeable and the store is packed, you might have to look twice before you discover that tiny treasure hiding in a corner.

Kunstkomora

Kunstkomora is not your typical antique store. It specializes in antique curiosities, stuff that’s old but also different, intriguing or just plain weird. Head here to find religious relics, antique ethnographic items, geological gems and anything related to antique natural history. Items come from all over the world (a large number from Asia and Africa) and from centuries gone by.
