Havel Market

Havel Market is one of the oldest markets in the city that dates back to the 13th century. It is located right off Melantrichova Street, between the Old Town Square and Wenceslas Square.

What to Buy

Originally selling mostly produce, Havel Market has changed much over the years due to a growing number of visitors. Today, the Havel Market offers a lot of souvenir stalls where tourists can find local honey, arts and crafts, leather goods, spa wafers, wooden toys, and vegetables. It is also a perfect place to grab a snack and purchase flowers.

History

Havel Market was built in 1232 and is one of the only permanent markets in the city that work all year round. Over the years it shifted its course from food and drinks to selling souvenirs to tourists, but still, it attracts many locals and is considered to be the most popular market in Prague.
