A small market and uninteresting. It has very high prices. Its location is good, between the two major squares, but the market itself there is nothing to search for. It's not interesting.

There's also chocolate, fruits, Czech teas, and of course, oplatky (traditional Czech snack). The prices are reasonable, compared to ones in more popular areas of... More

A good place to shop souvenirs: key ring, puppet, plates, mug, etc. Found a scarf shop with good prices nearby. The shops received either local Krone cash or Euro money. Always enjoyed looking around for the stuffs there.

Neat street market, somewhat away from the bustle of old town square. A variety of produce, dry goods, artwork and souvenirs are available. There are some nice restaurants right along the way.

Totally useless to those who are actually shopping for everyday things such as well priced food and clothing; but walking around here is better than reading the telephone book...maybe !! If you wish to pay double the price for fruit [ that has been handled a lot, in order to make it look better] and like some of the "souviniers"... More

This long market is a mix of tourism affairs and some local (expensive) fruit (baskets of fresh fruits on display with blueberries, raspberries,…). You do not see any local buying at this market, why? We had expected the prices to be cheaper for souvenirs! The sellers where quite friendly. A lot of the handmade puppets and other toys made of...

Market place directly in the heart of tourist zone with mostly useless things and enormously overpriced fruit. For example: a small basket with berries (exactly 125 gram - 4,5 U.S. ounce) sells for 160 CZK = 8 US dollars! However, he price written on the basket is deceiving, showing the cost only for 100 grams! Some stores put on scale... More

Decent little market. Considering the low overhead, I expected prices to be cheaper for souvenirs but wishful thinking.

I enjoyed walking around the Havelske Trziste, the sellers where really friendly. I loved all of the handmade puppets, there was so many of them it was great. The atmosphere was very cheery and I spent ages looking at through the market. I really had fun and bought some unusual little gifts for myself and family.

I stop for the fresh fruit. The berries are irresistible and I eat them soon after I pay for them. Can't resist. Eat them unwashed- against my better judgement. They don't spray them with chemicals here or do they? :) Bluberries and raspberries. They have the fresh, right out off the woods taste of my childhood- the berries we picked... More

Neighborhood Profile
Stare Mesto (Old Town)
One of the oldest neighborhoods in town represents the medieval heart of Prague. It’s no surprise it is bustling with tourists every time of day. Križovnický square, overlooking Charles Bridge with Prague Castle in the background, is probably the most beautiful square in the city. Its unique historical atmosphere of gothic houses and churches, cobblestone streets and squares, and stone towers blend together with the modern era. A vast array of bars, restaurants, dance clubs, international brand shops, galleries and hotels bring life to the old city. With its charming and picturesque cobblestone streets, the nightlife and parties will surely be unforgettable.
