The capital and largest city in the Czech Republic is Prague. It is also one of central Europe’s largest cities and has served as Bohemia’s historic region capital for centuries now. There are a number of gift shops that target tourists lining the streets of the Old Town district. During the month of December, the Christmas Markets populate the downtown square where you can find all the arts, crafts, foods, and Prague memorabilia that you can possibly stand.

However, if you want to enjoy a more modern shopping experience, then you need to venture out to the numerous shopping malls in Prague. Here is a list to choose from whenever you are visiting the city:
Nový Smíchov – this seems to be one of the more popular malls in the city because it seems that it is always busy throughout the day. There is a wide assortment of shops and stores to wander into and explore as well as a huge food court which will keep you trying to decide on which restaurant to dine at.
Palác Flóra – this is another one of the more popular shopping malls in Prague considering that it doesn’t feature any cutting edge stores. However, it is home to the only IMAX cinema in the Czech Republic and features a good assortment of shops and a food court, all of which make a trip here worth it.
Palladium – this enormous shopping mall is one of Prague’s newest and is more of an entertainment venue than a retail one. There are 170 shops here but there are also 30 bars, clubs, and different restaurants to enjoy while exploring this complex. Additionally, just down the street from the Palladium are a number of other smaller shopping centers. The following is a few of these smaller malls.
Slovanský dům – although the shopping choices are somewhat limited, the main attraction here is the cinema.
Černá růže – this venue offers a wider selection of shops and stores to choose from compared to the one above. Fashionistas typically shop here because they can find a number of name brand apparel at extremely reasonable prices including Guy Laroche, Pierre Cardin, and Valentino.
Myslbek – located a bit further down the street, this smaller shopping center offers several larger than normal stores to take advantage of. Many of the shops are men’s and women’s fashions but they all carry well known brand names.
Galerie Butovice – one of the newer malls as you are moving out of this shopping area, this one features about 100 stores and shops although there are no major stand-outs in the bunch. The major stores here are a Montana Swiss Sport, a KARA, and a Bijou Brigitte.
