If you’re looking to impress your friends and family with some unique Czech gifts , make a stop at one of the two Artěl design shops in the center. Started by a quirky American expat in 1998, Artěl specializes in handcrafted, mouth-blown, and hand-engraved Bohemian glassware. Artěl’s signature is a blend of classic tradition with modern design sensibility. Crystal is a well-established tradition in the Czech lands and Artěl does it in a way that sets them apart from other designers. Even if you’re not interested in crystal, make it a point to peruse their shop and gawk at the amazing pieces on display. They have many unique and unconventional gifts – carefully selected Czech vintage and design items available – for any budget.
