The Czech Republic is known mostly for its glass, porcelain, hand cut lead crystal, puppets, hand carved wooden toys, garnets, and probably some other items that we have not thought of. There are many stores and all take credit cards, except when you purchase items at open markets. The merchandise tends to be cheaper than at home and is of very good quality. Don’t forget about the sales tax, which you get back when you export an item - check the VAT rules above.
