Hoping to bring home a historical souvenir? Prague’s flea markets have a lot of great memorabilia, cheap secondhand items, and even Bohemian crystals to offer. We have put together a list of the best markets to check out on your next visit to the Czech capital.

Flea Market Prague

This nameless flea market is sometimes known as the “U Elektry Market” because of the street where it lies. As the largest flea market in Europe, it occupies an area of 50,000 square meters (538,196 square feet), and it’s just as chaotic as you might expect from its size. No organized booths here—the entire place is more of a mismatch of tables and objects piled up in baskets or on the tarps on the floor. However, this is where the magic of U Elektry lies; there’s no way to know which treasures of Bohemian glass, porcelain, Soviet-era medals, and even jewelry that you’ll find here. Arrive early for the best deals (the market opens at 6 am and closes at 2 pm, Saturdays and Sundays only), and look beyond the obvious old toys and clothes while searching for a treasure.

Klementinum Antique Market


This Sunday-only flea and antique market is a well-kept secret in Prague. Located in a hidden courtyard just steps away from the magnificent Clementinum library, the market consists of tables set up by local antique and vintage store dealers. Small items—from secondhand crystal to Soviet memorabilia—abound, and bargaining is welcomed.

Flea Market on the (A)void Floating Gallery

This small flea market has one major thing going for it: it takes place on a boat permanently anchored on Naplavka, Prague’s beautiful riverbank. Only open on the second Saturday of the month, the (A)void is the right destination for smaller treasures such as jewelry and old watches, as well as vintage clothes, bags, and household items.

Namesti Miru Flea Market


The Namesti Miru market is technically the same market that operates on the (A)void; however, on the last Saturday of each month, it moves to this location at the square right in front of the neo-Gothic Church of St. Ludmila. Because the space is slightly larger and more open here, you’ll find more secondhand household items—from kitchen utensils and small pieces of furniture to vintage art.

Collectors’ Market

If you are after better quality antiques and collectibles, heading out of Prague would pay off. Just 30 minutes away from Prague in the town of Buštěhrad, you’ll find the “Collectors’ Market,” a flea market that has been operating year-round for over three decades. Czechoslovakian items—from porcelain and pins to fine crystal and vintage cameras—are often available here, but you can also purchase other collectibles. Expect the unexpected when it comes to items available at this market, including gas masks from the war, lots of vintage furniture, and beautiful wooden marionettes.

It's the personal contact, the personal experiences. I love meeting people from all over the world... I really like getting to know everyone and feeling like I'm traveling with a group of friends.


I have so many places on my list, but I would really lobe to go to Africa. I consider myself an “adventure girl” and Africa feels like the ULTIMATE adventure!
