"Bargain, bargain, bargain!" Czech Republic Shopping Tip by reon80

Czech Republic Shopping: 15 reviews and 8 photos

What to buy: Russian dolls, the infamous Prague sweatshirt that everyone else you know owns, cheap Bohemian crystal, and lace are all popular tourist favorites well worth their weight in Kroner.

What to pay: Bargain anywhere you go. This is not necessary from a financial standpoint--the exchange rate allows travelers to buy things for literally pennies. However, bargaining is fun and also gets you the rate you SHOULD be paying--so join in the fun! Chances are if youre in a tourist shop and they quote you a price, they'll lower it if you just keep standing there.
