The area
Address
Neighborhood: Malá Strana (Little Quarter)
Malá Strana is one of the oldest and the most beautiful neighborhoods in the city. Nestled underneath Prague Castle it was once a part of the Kings route taken by future kings on their way to coronation - originating in the Old Town, crossing Charles Bridge and leading to Saint Vitus Cathedral. Cobblestone streets are lined with picturesque medieval houses, remarkable palaces, churches, kitsch shops and restaurants. Do not hesitate to turn a corner into any narrow street. You will suddenly find yourself in a calm and charming neighborhood full of hidden gardens, parks with peacocks, fruit trees and ponds. As the neighborhood is a home to Czech Parliament and many ministries, you can also run into well-dressed officials. If you are thirsty or hungry, it is the right place to be. Restaurants offer delicious traditional food and of course, the best Czech beers.

Quality unsurpassed
Jul 2020
I have ordered crystal three different times throughout the years. I just received glasses with the Primavel Palms motif in green. The service, the shipping and timeliness of everything is superb. And the glassware is gorgeous! I use it daily and never tire of the beauty of the designs and colors.
I thank everyone involved at Artel for making our lives more beautiful!

Stunning crystal
Dec 2019
On a recent visit to Prague I had been looking for some crystal to purchase that was a bit different. It wasn't until our last day in Prague on Christmas Eve that I spotted the shop whilst on an early morning run. The window display lured me back and I was so pleased to find the shop open for a few hours on what was their public holiday. The designs are so unique and the colors beautiful. As noted by previous reviews, the prices will blow you away, but for a one-off purchase, I would highly recommend. I also purchase a Michaela Gorcova necklace at this lovely shop. Service was outstanding. Highly recommended.
I arrived home yesterday and my beautiful lilac Verdure vase sits lovely on a piece of jarrah furniture.
A big thank you.

Perfect glassware!
Oct 2019 • Couples
On our recent trip to Prague we wanted to bring home some glassware to add to our bar. The ladies in the store walked us through their selections but best of all actually asked us questions to find out exactly what we were looking for. We decided to have a set of rocks glasses made for us. We were able to pick the style, the etching, the colors, all to make it a very personal selection. They were very thorough, thoughtful, friendly, and knowledgeable. We are back home in the states and just received our glasses. We couldn't be happier with them and we enjoy them daily!

You will find here modern and straightforward quality Bohemian Chrystal.
The designer we picked, an American called Wiseman, produces in Czech Republic.
This shop is certainly worth a visit if you want to bring home an exclusive souvenir from Prague

Exquisite handcrafted glass
Aug 2019
Without doubt the best quality glass we saw in Prague - but you get what you pay for, so it is not cheap! The staff were very helpful and have emailed me a catalogue so that I can take time to consider what to buy for my son's wedding - which they will then ship to me. Some beautiful pieces!

We saw some of their pieces in our hotel lobby and it drew us to the store. We walked the Charles Bridge and the store was at the end. Really beautiful glass pieces. We ordered Champagne flutes, they arrived two weeks ago and they are pieces of art! We are so happy with our purchase and they remind us of our wonderful time in Prague.

Very poor customer service and not able proof of crystal origin
Oct 2018 • Friends
I was shopping in Artel store close to four season hotel in October ..glass was dirty on shelf , store manager was sitting in back of store and on computer and totally ignoring our request to explain how is the color applied on glass and not able to show as any certificates. Glass is very overpriced and staff was not helpfull at all. If you want shop for real Czech design I recommend to avoid this store and visit Prague cabinet next door.

Exquisite, Modern Czech Glass
Sep 2018
Many years ago, I'd worked for a company that sold Artel pieces and always been fascinated by the quality and craftsmanship of the pieces. So, with this in mind, Artel was definitely on the list of places to visit in Prague.

There are two stores in Prague - a small, but perfectly formed store just to the right of Charles Bridge on the Castle side, and another, larger Concept Store on the opposite Bank. We visited both, but much preferred the layout of the larger store. Bright, beautifully etched Glass pieces wink from every corner of the boutique, and are arranged beautifully to highlight the delicate craftsmanship. They also stock a variety of other design items by other companies, but the glass is the star here. Staff are knowledgeable and friendly (a rarity in Prague we found) without being pushy.

We ended up buying many more pieces than originally intended, but are utterly happy to have done so, as our lasting memory of a wonderful trip to this beautiful city!
