  Scenes from a mall, Czech style
by hundwalder

A modern Prague mall with interesting architecture. This is a four level mall with an open area in the center. The top level houses my favorite part, the food and drink area, which is an excellent place to eat lunch and mingle with the locals. The food is good and the prices are much lower than in " designated tourist zones ".

Here is an Interesting side note regarding fast food restaurants in Czechia: Pivo ( beer ) is one of the beverage options for combination meals or just by itself. That is my idea of a happy meal. American owned fast food restaurant chains in Prague do not adhere to this policy of course. Doing so would harm their puritanical image.

The mall also houses many attractive and tidy shops. Knowing almost nothing about shopping, I cannot provide any specific information or rave reviews about the shops.

This mall and many of Prague's interesting places were placed on " the verboten or forbidden list " compiled by the tourism gods. Don't mind the experts of organized travel. The locals will welcome you to their mall.

Just three stops east of Wenceslas Square on the furiously fast subway trains ( takes about 3 minutes meaning it is very close to the main tourist sites ). Metro line A, station Flora. Disembark, ascend the stairs or escalator, and you will find yourself standing at the floor level entrance to the mall. How easy ! Use your public transportation pass. They are cheap and contrary to popular opinion, tourists are allowed to purchase them.
