ENJOY THE MAGIC OF CHRISTMAS WITH CZECH GARNET


Happy Holidays! Prague is one of the best places in Europe to celebrate Christmas. Even though thousands of tourists flock to the Czech capital to see the Christmas markets, it is still a more down-to-earth alternative to some of the continent’s other cities. So to help you spread holiday cheer, we’re bringing you our guide to everything Christmas. Intend on finding the perfect holiday souvenir for friends and family? Our shopping guide gives a look at the best locally made Czech gifts that you won’t find anywhere else. It includes everything from small stocking stuffers to presents for wannabe jetsetters. So don’t fall into the trap of buying travel absinthe bottles or a Russian doll in the city center. Instead, support local artists and businesses. Christmas markets start popping up in city squares at the end of November, and there are so many it’s hard to keep track. Our guide to the Christmas markets will help you navigate so you don’t miss any photo-worthy opportunities. While you’re at one of the markets, you may notice vats of live carp. That’s just one of many Czech Christmas traditions that you can find out more about in our article on Czech Christmas traditions. Be careful, a lot of them have to do with how you will die. Finally, we can’t forget about New Year’s Eve. Whether you want a low-key or high-end New Year’s, our list will give you the inside scoop on the best places to toast 2020. From all the Prague Visitor staff, we would like to wish a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

PRO TIP:

We suggest using your feet to get around Prague. When necessary, use our amazing and inexpensive transit system. But, If you feel the need to try a scooter or bikesharing, here’s our very biased opinion and the basics of your options...

Just Say No...

Analog and Cool

Electric push scooters just aren’t cool, unless you’re a six year old. They’re also not efficient or much fun on cobblestone streets, which leads many riders to end up where they’re not supposed to be - on the sidewalk. Then people really hate you. We avoid.

Rekola bikes aren’t electric powered, but we love them for two reasons. 1) It’s a Local company and 2) the baskets on the front are really handy for carrying stuff. They’re also the least expensive of the three.

Ten things you need to know about

Czech Christmas

Christmas time is our favorite time of the year, especially here in the Czech Republic. If you’re visiting, you should probably be aware of the basics, and some of the more quirky Czech traditions. Christmas Eve is the main day of celebration – with a family dinner and the opening of gifts while Christmas Day is more low-key. Here’s ten ways Christmas time in the Czech Republic might be different than what you’re used to…

Happy Name Day... Got you an apple!

Move over Santa, It's baby Jesus! Unlike most Germanic cultures, baby Jesus (Ježíšek) brings the presents, not Santa Claus. Gifts are delivered during dinner through an open window and the presents are left under the tree. Before you start picturing infant Jesus carrying in a kids bike it should be noted there are really no images associated with the divine being.

Happy Name Day, Adam and Eve! Hey kids, the Devil will get you! Forget Santa Claus’ naughty or nice list. Saint Mikuláš Day is enough to scare any misbehaving child into obedience for the entire year. Celebrated in Old Town Square and in many Czech villages, this holiday puts a twist on the classic lump of coal. As the legend goes, on the eve of Dec. 5 Saint Mikuláš (not Santa Claus), an angel and a devil wander through the streets asking children if they’ve been good this year. Children usually respond with a yes, a song or a poem. Good children receive candies and fruit, while bad children get a lump of coal or spoiled potatoes. However, truly terrible children are dragged to Hell by the devil. No wonder so many youngsters are spotted crying in Old Town Square on this day when people dress up as the Saint and his companions.

THE PRAGUE VISITOR | December 2019

Similar to a birthday, a Name Day involves celebrating a day of the year that is associated with one's given name. Homage is paid to those bearing the name of the first man and woman on December 24.

...and Speaking of Apples During or after Christmas dinner, each person cuts an apple down the middle to see if it has a star, which means they will survive the next year, or a cross, which means they will die (Luckily it’s almost impossible to get a cross).

Put a ring on it... Tired of swiping on Tinder in search of love? December is the time of year for single women to predict if they will be married in the next year. Close down your app and go throw a shoe over your shoulder instead. If the shoe’s toe is pointing to the door, you’ll be at the altar within the year. Or if you happen to be walking by an elder tree you can shake to see if you hear a dog bark, which makes perfect sense.


There's Carp in the bathtub! A traditional Czech Christmas dinner is made up of several courses, including fish soup, bread with honey, potato salad, fruit and of course fried carp. This meal dates back to the 18th century when carp was cheap enough to be a commonplace dish in many Czech kitchens. Now in the days leading up to Dec. 24, Christmas markets will begin selling live carp from large vats of water. Many families keep the slippery fish in their bathtubs until it ends up on their dinner plates. A perfect new (and temporary) friend for the kids.

Seeing Golden Pigs Looking for a bit of luck? Perhaps try the Czech tradition of fasting all day before the big Christmas dinner. Superstition has it that if you see a golden pig (zlaté prasátko) – you'll have good luck for all of the upcoming year.

First one to leave the dinner table dies... Unlike other countries, the Czech Republic’s main holiday festivities are on Dec. 24. This is the day where the Christmas feast is served, which is often connected with many superstitions and customs. While many of these aren’t practiced today, mostly because it would take forever to get through the meal, many involve wealth, good luck or death. For example, it is said that the first person to leave the table on Christmas Eve will be the first to die in the new year, and so everyone should get up and leave the table at the same time. Rather than enjoy leftovers in the days to come, you should bury them around trees so they bear fruit. And don’t forget to put fish scales under your dinner plate or in your wallet to bring wealth. Ew.

More Christmas ways to die Superstition and fortune-telling seems to surround the traditional Czech Christmas, foretelling not just upcoming success, but also impending death. Families put a candle in a walnut shell and watch where the walnut boat floats, which provides a prediction for the upcoming year – once again including death as one of the many outcomes. Other superstitions include pouring molten lead into water and reading the shapes to determine fate in the upcoming year.

St. Stephens and Chill A more recent Czech tradition which takes place on Svátek svatého Štěpána (or St. Stephen's Day) involves jumping into a freezing cold lake or cold river. In Prague, you can join the plunge into the Vltava by the National Theatre. We'd recommend bringing your own towel and a bottle of slivovice.

Christmas Market Guide Advent wreaths are lining the shelves. St. Nicholas arm-in-arm with angels and devils is strolling through Old Town Square. The smell of mulled wine permeates the air. Christmas is upon us. Prague is known this time of year for its magical charm by tourists and residents alike, and for good reason. Come late November, Christmas markets start popping up on every street corner as people hurry to finish their holiday shopping. In preparation, here is our guide to navigating them.

Old Town Square

(Staroměstské náměstí) As the city’s largest market, Old Town Square encompasses many Prague landmarks, including the Astronomical Clock and the statue of Jan Hus. With a nativity scene, concert stage and an enormous Christmas tree poised in front of Týn Church, this spot provides the best photo opportunities for both travelers and residents. Bundle up and meander through the various stalls selling traditional embroidery, ornaments and wooden trinkets. When you need a shopping break, enjoy carolling and other musical performances with some spiced wine and sausage from one of the food vendors. Through Jan. 6 10:00–22:00

Wenceslas Square (Václavské náměstí)

Prague Castle

Republic Square

(Pražský hrad)

(Náměstí Republiky)

Nestled just behind St. Vitus Cathedral, the Prague Castle Christmas market is like traveling back in time. This market is smaller and less crowded thanks to security lines leading into the castle complex, and its carefully selected vendors sell many high-quality goods perfect for authentic gifts for friends back home. Adding to the atmosphere, many stalls offer traditional Czech food, including ham roasting over a fire. If you want to combine some holiday shopping with sightseeing, this is your best pick. Through Jan. 6 Mon–Thurs 9:00–18:00 Fri.–Sun. 9:00–19:00

If you’re more interested in grabbing some delicious holiday grub and an alcoholic beverage than buying gifts, the Náměstí Republiky market should be on your list. Situated next to Palladium Shopping Center, this market is known for its food as well as its affordable prices. It’s location also makes it ideal as a quick stop for mistletoe or an advent wreath without the hassle of large crowds. Through Dec. 29 10:00–22:00

Peace Square (Náměstí Míru)

If you want to get a head start on the Christmas markets or if you’re in Prague earlier in the season, Náměstí Míru is the place to go. This market usually goes up before the one in Old Town and is popular among locals, so it’s a good look at an authentic Czech Christmas. This is also the spot if you’re interested in handmade gifts, such as soaps, lotions and knit scarves, as opposed to the more touristy options at Old Town Square. The neoGothic Saint Ludmila Church adds a nice touch to the ambience as well. Through Dec. 24 10:00–19:00

While not quite as bustling as Old Town Square, this Christmas market is the next best choice to celebrate Prague’s holiday spirit. Just a 10-minute walk from Kampa Island Old Town and located toward the lower part of the promenade, the Wenceslas Square market also has a While not as big as other markets, Kampa Island is the Christmas tree and nativity scene, albeit a little smaller best place to enjoy the beautiful views of the Vltava than its more popular counterpart. Many of the vendors River with a cup of grog or hot chocolate.

From upcoming exhibitionyou don’t want to skip sightseeing. “Velvet Memories” in Novoměstská radnice (from 22.11.2019)

Havel’s Christmas Market There are many year-round farmers’ markets that transform in December, but Havel’s is one worth visiting. Many of those who frequent this market will recall its popular toy the screaming witch, but that’s just one of the many knick knacks and souvenirs you can find. Wooden puppets, leather goods, ceramics and much more await shoppers in this alley tucked between Old Town Square, Náměstí Republiky and Václavské náměstí. All year 06:00-18:30

Manifesto Market With locations at Florenc and Smíchov, Manifesto Market is the destination for the trendy. Known for being food and retail pop-ups, these locations are transforming into winter markets with Christmas trees, holiday treats and heated transparent igloos, so you can get festive and stay warm. The Florenc location features brands like Fellof, specializing in lamb and sheepskin products, and BeWooden, a Czech designer of chic accessories. After you buy a gift for that creative professional in your life, enjoy a warm drink in their red and white porcelain cups created just for the season.

Two tales reimagined

Ballet weaves together two classic Christmas stories

By Nicole Ely It’s the suburbs of 19th century London on Christmas Eve. The familiar character Ebenezer Scrooge, Charles Dickens’ greedy moneylender, is busy reminding his borrowers of what they owe him. Little does he know that spirits, a Satanic sabbath and a nutcracker await him. The story is a well-known holiday classic about redemption, but this one has an unexpected twist thanks to Hungarian choreographer Youri Vàmos. Instead of giving audiences just one classic Christmas story, Vàmos gives them two. “The Nutcracker–A Christmas Carol,” playing at the National Theatre through Jan. 11, tells the dual stories of Scrooge and Clara, the girl whose nutcracker magically comes to life. Since its debut in Saint Petersburg in 1892, “The Nutcracker” has been popular with audiences for ages. It has undergone many reiterations in choreography and story since its premiere. Vàmos’s version, which had its first performance in 1988 in Bonn, elevates the tale above a meer Christmas story into a fresh, but timeless adventure that is great for all ages, all times of the year. It first came to Prague in December 2004 and went on to be a big hit. “The Nutcracker–A Christmas Carol” is not

Vàmos’s first time he has added a different take on a classic story. He often adds imaginative revisions to classical works. For example, his production of “The Sleeping Beauty” became “Anastasia–The Last Daughter of the Romanov Czars.” Vàmos started his career as a ballet dancer at the State Ballet School in Budapest. He’s spent most of his professional career in Germany after he was offered a contract at Bayerische Staatsoper in Munich. From there he gravitated to choreography until eventually becoming artistic director of Deutsche Oper am Rhein Düsseldorf, where he enjoyed considerable success for 13 years. His performances often sold out and earned him great recognition. Many consider him to be one of the best choreographic storytellers of today. Petr Zuska, the artistic director of the National Theatre Ballet in Prague called him “the last ballet narrator.” Vàmos is also one of the last European choreographers who aims to keep full-length ballets, with “The Nutcracker–A Christmas Carol” clocking in at two hours with a 20-minute intermission. While staying true to the traditional foundation of his art, Vàmos breathes new life into his productions by focusing on expressing the psychological nuances of his characters. The ballet opens with “A Christmas Carol.” After Scrooge’s accountant Bob Cratchit is caught making

fun of his boss’s cantankerous spirit, he is fired on the spot leaving him without the money to buy Christmas gifts. Clara, instead of being a part of the bourgeois Stahlbaum family, is Bob Cratchit’s daughter who had hoped to receive a toy nutcracker for Christmas. In this version, it is Scrooge who breaks the nutcracker, not her bullying brother. From there much of the stories progress as they did in their original versions. Scrooge is visited by ghosts and is plagued by visions of hell if he doesn’t change his ways. Clara eventually dances with her nutcracker, once the broken toy transforms into a prince in the famous pas de deux. Luckily for fans of the traditional “Nutcracker,” many of the most celebrated aspects of the show remain in Vàmos’s version. In addition to the pas de deux, the Dance of Nations in the final act also stayed. Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky’s amazing score has also been relatively untouched, so fans of the Russian composer can still enjoy the lightness his music brings to the story. A beautiful tale of the power of Christmas being able to transform human character, “The Nutcracker–A Christmas Carol” is the perfect show to buy tickets to this holiday season. You can purchase tickets online at narodni-divadlo.cz.

Meet Factory 6*

Ke Sklárně 15, Prague 5 www.meetfactory.cz

The Roxy is one of Prague’s oldest and bestknown clubs. The venue was a popular theatre and ballroom in the 1920’s, but now you’ll find drum and bass, house, techno, and other modern styles on the dancefloor. When the club isn’t hosting a live DJ, it’s the spot for concerts and music festivals.

Revoluční 3, Prague 1 www.epicprague.com Newcomer to the club scene, Epic has made a name for itself as one of the hottest new clubs in the city. This modern electronic club has three levels that each make you feel like you are at an EDM concert.

M1 Lounge 6(

Masná 1, Prague 1 www.m1lounge.com M1 Lounge is a favorite of locals, expats and even passing-through celebrities, and it’s not hard to see why. The club’s well-known team of skilled DJs keep the place pumping with a mixture of R&B, hip-hop, electro and dance music until the wee hours of morning, and the upscale, luxurious atmosphere makes every night feel like a celebration.

Vodičkova 36, Prague 1 www.musicbar.cz One of the largest and most popular music clubs in Prague, Lucerna is known for its weekly concerts and events. It's most popular on Friday and Saturday nights, when the club’s huge projection screens come alive with 80’s and 90’s music videos. Partygoers of every age and all walks of life can be seen here, getting down to oldie hits from Blondie to Nirvana. Vibe: Like being at your favorite throwback concert, except this time you can get on the stage and dance.

Cross Club 6&

Plynární 23, Prague 7 www.crossclub.cz Cross Club is a labyrinth of small bars and dancefloors pumping music from dubstep and techno to reggae and hip-hop. The club’s psychedelic, industrial décor is a sight to see in itself—every piece of the building from the walls to the ceiling is constructed to move and pulsate with the music, some of it you can even interact with. It’s one of the most unique experiences you’ll have with nightlife in Prague. Cross Club is a bit out of the city center, but worth the trek. Check the website to see what kind of music will be pulsating through the multi-level space. Vibe: Euphoric and alternative, definitely in a category of it’s own.

James Dean 7)

V kolkovně 1, Prague 1 www.jamesdean.cz Okay, we admit that this one’s kind of kitschy— but only in the best way. Named for the iconic rebel and actor, the bar has a classic 1950’s American diner feel turned late-night club. Vibe: Modern twist on a classic time, all ages and all sorts of feels.

Harley’s 7(

Dlouhá 18, Prague 1 www.harleys.cz Harley's is described as the coolest hell on earth. This American-style biker bar opens late and is always rockin’ and rollin’ with live DJs and music acts. It’s also in a perfect location, just a two-minute walk from Old Town Square. Vibe: If bikers were European 25-year-olds screaming Nirvana at the top of their lungs.

Retro 7%

Francouzská 4, Prague 2 www.retropraha.cz One for the curious, bored or brave. Retro has become the Czech home of hard house.

Bělehradská 120, Prague 2 www.radostfx.cz First opened in the early ‘90s just a few years after the Velvet Revolution, Radost FX is open Thursday to Saturday and offers the best of house, R&B and hip hop music—Rihanna even filmed one of her music videos there.

V kolkovně 6, Prague 1 www.cafe80.cz You can’t go wrong with 80’s music. Whether you’re nostaligic or just appreciative of all things “totally awesome”, the two-story venue features an 80’s themed café restaurant on the first floor.

An underground labyrinth and local hangout this place is the weird artsy side of Prague.

U Sudu 7*

Vodičkova 10, Prague 1 www.usudu.cz U Sudu is the best of both worlds with a wine bar upstairs and an underground, cave-like labyrinth downstairs. When you walk in, wind around til you hit the stairs that descend into one of the coolest places to drink on Earth... It is indeed smoky, but get past that and the place is just mythic.

THE PRAGUE VISITOR | December 2019


Cocktail guide & wine bar guide

The best cocktail bars in Prague (like the ones listed here) get pretty busy, even during the week. It’s always good to make a reservation just to make sure you get a seat (even at the bar). The numbers correspond to the map in the center of the magazine.

Le Valmont 9)

Uhelný trh 9, Prague 1 levalmont.cz

The Michael Van Cleef Ault concept was inspired by the Miloš Forman movie of the same name, and is decorated in 18th-century French fashion with aubusson carpets, antique sofas, and massive crystal chandeliers. Reservations: +420 224 267 266

Schody Home Bar 7^

Zámecké schody 8, Prague 1 Located right on the stairs (schody in Czech) of Prague Castle, it’s hard to find but well worth the search. Once you’re inside, tell the mixologist what flavors you like and he’ll fix up your dream cocktail. Like sister restaurant Parlour, - it’s a cozy hidden secret and they’re trying to keep it that way.

Black Angel’s 8#

Staroměstské náměstí 29, Prague 1 blackangels.cz

Nestled in a cozy cellar just across from the Old Town astronomical clock, Black Angel’s will put you in sensory overload. With high cellar ceilings, chandeliers, and ornate decor, it’s a lot to take in. +420 224 213 807 for Reservations.

Bar and Books 8%

Mánesova 64, Prague 2 and Týnská 19, Prague 1 barandbooks.cz Like its New York counterpart, the bar evokes the feeling of a gentleman’s library. Dim lighting, heavy woods, ornately framed paintings, and of course books (mostly for visual aesthetics). Two locations and reservations online.

L’Fleur 9$

V kolkovně 5, Prague 1 lfleur.cz L’Fleur is just a few doors down from Tretter’s. Even before our first drink, we fell in love with the 1920’s feel of the interior, complete with a Mucha-inspired stained glass window towards the back of the bar. The signature drinks all come with their own history, which the bartender is always happy to explain. If you’re feeling a bit more bubbly, try a selection from L’Fleur’s expansive champagne list. +420 734 255 665 for Reservations

Parlour 8$

Krakovská 15, Prague 1 parlour.cz Maybe Parlour doesn’t want to be found – and that’s fine with us. The tiny little bar at the top of Wenceslas Square near the National Museum has a delightful speakeasy vibe to it, though it’s quickly becoming a popular secret. If you should luck out and discover the nearly unmarked entry, inside you’ll find an intimate, dimly lit bar with old jazz and R&B records playing and amazing craft cocktails served in antique glassware. Reservations: +420 777 200 015

Crazy Daisy 9(

Václavské náměstí 4, Prague 1 crazydaisy.cz Somewhat hidden at the bottom of Wenceslas Square, this one of our favourite new hotspots. First Republic style interior, bar staff dressed the part and videomapping on the walls that pushes reality - it feels like you’re in The Great Gatsby. Reservations: +420 273 130 486

Bugsy’s 9%

Pařížská 10, Prague 1 bugsysbar.cz

Popping up just after the Velvet Revolution. Their one constant has been attention to detail and passion for good cocktails. Bugsy’s also loves their bubbly, and boasts over 130 brands of champagne and prosecco, as well as over 90 single malt whiskeys and 100 types of rum. +420 224 810 287 for Reservations.

Tretter’s 8@

V kolkovně 3, Prague 1 tretters.cz

The Tretter family has been in the bar business for more than 90 years, so it’s no wonder this place feels like walking into a 1930’s Paris or New York cocktail bar. Soft lighting, classic decor and bartenders dressed the part in vintage cocktail jackets, the bar has become an institution. +420 224 811 165 for Reservations.

AnonymouS Bar 9# Michalská 12, Prague 1 anonymousbar.cz

It’s nearly impossible to go into the AnonymouS Bar and not smile, the bar is clever at every turn. You can tell the bartender your likes and they’ll make suggestions, or choose from the secret drink menu printed in UV ink and read with a small blacklight. Reservations are taken only until 9pm at +420 608 280 069.

Hemingway Bar 9!

Karolíny Světlé 26, Prague 1 hemingwaybar.cz

AnonymouS Bar's drinks are just as amazing as the presentation.

Chances are, if you’ve asked around, Hemingway’s Bar has already been recommended. The Old Town hotspot just made the “World’s Top 50 Bars” for the third time, and with good reason. The bar’s philosophy is that every customer must have a seat, so you won’t feel overcrowded here. Reservations are highly recommended. +420 773 974 764 for Reservations.

Cash Only Bar 8( Liliová 3, Prague 1 cashonlybar.cz

Just around the corner from its older sibling Hemingway’s, this little gem is making its own name with cocktails like Pin-Up Martini, made with passion fruit, vanilla and champagne. It’s an intimate bar, and they don’t take reservations. There’s also no smoking and, you guessed it—the bar doesn’t take credit cards. Oh, and by the way, they do serve amazing hot dogs.

Green Devil’s Absinth Bar 7(

Týn 7, Prague 1 If you’re looking for an authentic and eclectic experience in absinth tasting, check out the Green Devil’s Absinth Bar in Old Town. The unique atmosphere accentuates the hand-curated products; ranging from quality beverages to absinth-flavored ice cream. This location is a great place to spend an evening and learn about the history and culture of absinth. Reservations: +420 728 326 344

Hoffa

Senovážné nám. 22, Prague 1 One of the first non-smoking bars in Prague, Hoffa Bar has become a hotspot for evening drinks since it opened in 2013. Situated just

off of Wencesles Square, Hoffa Bar regularly hosts DJ’s and live music of all genres along with monthly events listed on their calendar. Their menu boasts a wide selection of wines from all over Europe as well as cocktails, some homemade recipes as well as classics.

La Bodeguita del Medio 8)

Kaprova 5, Prague 1 labodeguitadelmedio.cz With it’s colonial-style interior straight from Old Havana, La Bodeguita is on point. In addition to great food, bar staff have perfected their craft with regional drinks, from the Cuba Libre to the Mojito. Located underneath Cohiba Atmosphere. +420 224 813 922 for Reservations

Cohiba Atmosphere 8! Kaprova 5, Prague 1 cohibaatmosphere.cz

Referred to as the Havana of Prague, this cigar club is more than just premium cigars. Refined cocktails, and fine wine quality spirits are all served in this classy setting. The sleek design of the bar, combined with the top-notch service of the bartenders makes this the perfect spot for a quality drink. +420 224 818 373 for Reservations.

Vinograf 8(

Senovážné náměstí 23, Prague 1 Míšeňská 8, Prague 1 vinograf.cz There are two convenient locations of one of our favorite wine bars one off of Wenceslas Square and one just under Charles Bridge, each with their own distinct personality, but both cozy and comfortable with a reliable selection of good wines. +420 214 214 681 for Reservations.

Na břehu Rhôny 4$ Na Hrobci 1, Prague 2 nabrehurhony.cz

Na břehu Rhôny is one of our favorite wine destinations. Pour your own French wines and keep track on a notepad. Delicious food platters are also available and the service is friendly and quick. +420 733 785 377

U Staré studny 2& Tržiště 3, Prague 1 ustarestudny.cz

Step into the luxurious wine bar and find every kind of unique wine, cognac, or champagne to sample with a tasting flight. They offer daily wine tastings, with at least six premium Czech wines to sample by the glass each day.

VELTLIN 4%

Křižíkova 115, Prague 8 veltlin.cz

Our go-to when in the Karlín area, Veltlin offers a variety of Czech, Moravian, and Central European wines. The staff are great and the owner, Bogdan, is an awardwinning Wine Guru (who is down to earth and friendly even with nonguru wine fans).

Vinotéka U Mouřenína 1( Tržiště 17, Prague 1

vinotekaumourenina.cz

Cozy wine bar and shop with an excellent selection of wines at great prices for Malá Strana. You can also enjoy cheese and bread plates with your glasses of wine, perfect for a cozy evening with a friend or significant other.

CZECH REPUBLIC

IDEAS BEER FOR HER

BEER FOR HIM

The classy bottles from Aurosa will be enough to quiet any woman’s complaints about getting beer as a Christmas present. Wanting to bring a certain sophistication to the Czech Republic’s favorite beverage, this brand offers two different beers in marbled containers. Once you drink them all, you can always use the bottle as a vase. 99Kč www.aurosa.cz

If you’re a man and you don’t like beer, are you a man really? Luckily the Czech Republic is the beer mecca of the world, and their drinking habits date back to practically the beginning of time. Strahov Monastic Brewery, just a short walk from Prague Castle, has been brewing since the 13th century, so they know what they’re doing. Their new doppelbock, which will be available on Dec. 3, has just the right amount of hoppy bitterness to balance its malty sweetness, not a bad combination for a beer or a man. 120Kč (for half liter) Strahovské nádvoří 301 233 353 155

GREEN THUMB (OR NOT) PACK AND GO!

SKY'S THE LIMIT

You can’t walk through the streets of Prague without spotting a Braasi backpack. Architects Eliška Slámová and Šimon Brabec created the brand as a hobby in 2013 and quickly grew a following. Their popular Wicker design is water resistant, made with canvas and perfect for urban cyclists who worry about keeping their laptops dry on their commute. Or anyone who wants to look cool while also toting around a load of stuff. 4590Kč www.braasi.com

Some people like houseplants, others like the idea of houseplants. Mostly because they struggle to keep any kind of multicellular organism alive. So forget the Tillandsia and opt for this simple kill-proof pendant for the plant murderer in your life. Crafted from enamel, all of Hemleva’s pins are original designs. First comes the plant pin, then actual plants, then a dog, then a child, right? 250Kč www.hemleva.com

For almost the same price as a fully loaded Tesla Model S, you can buy your significant other for the world’s fastest ultralight aircraft, the VL3 evolution. With an especially low operating cost of about 600kc per hour including fuel, you could be spending your mornings in Prague, your afternoons in Rome and your evenings in Paris. It also comes with a parachute recovery system. You know, in case of emergencies. 3,136,609.24Kč www.vl3.cz

THE BODY BAG Czech designer Alex Monhart has been producing some beautiful products over the past few years, and we pretty much love everything that comes from her mind. Our latest obsession is this Italian leather “body bag” which can be worn across the body, as a belt bag or a clutch. On the inside there’s enough pockets and slots for all your credit cards, spare change, keys, jewelry, lipsticks, mints… You get the idea. 7,500Kč Showroom at Jana Zajice 24 www.alexmonhart.com

SKINNY IN A BOX Soap that will magically trim a few kilos off your midsections sounds too good to be true. That’s because it is. The next best thing is this gift box from Smyssly, which focuses on nourishing the skin and fighting cellulite. Items include their pearl body oil, bamboo charcoal soap and a gua-sha agate stone. So say goodbye to those red veins. They won’t be missed. 1800Kč Národní 63/26 www.smyssly.com

NOW SHOWING... Cinephiles who frequent Kino Svetozor might notice their artsy movie posters in their entrance. They’re from the neighboring shop Terry Posters, named after Monty Python member Terry Gilliam. From the 50s to the late 80s, many Czechoslovak artists spent time designing original posters for all genres of films. This shop showcases the work for more than 50 influential local artists, including Karel Vaca, and Zdeněk Ziegler. Because who doesn’t want the Czech version of a “Blazing Saddles” poster? 250–7000Kč Vodičkova 41 www.terry-posters.com

PUT A RING ON IT Once you start shopping for diamond rings, they can all start looking the same. Not true at 27 Jewelry. This shop specializes in handmade luxury jewelry crafted by Lenka Kerlická, who comes from a long line of goldsmith masters.

TRAM ART This series of posters at Malá Strana's Orel and Friends capture some of Prague's most popular trams with their repective routes as background scenery, like Vysehrad and Old Town. We love the number 22 poster, which is our local old reliable. 600 Kč Nerudova 6 www.orelandfriends.cz

Let’s face it. Handmade Christmas gifts are cute when they’re from young children. When they’re from adults, they’re usually crap. Best leave it to Local Artists. Their selection of hand-crafted ceramic mugs come from one of Prague's oldest potters and are unique, attractive and won’t make you want to accidentally on purpose break them on your kitchen floor. 325 Kč Karmelitská 26 www.localartists.cz

SHINY THINGS With the popularity of the Czech garnet, it is easy to come across fakes. Don’t get ripped off by one scammers in the city center. Instead head to Granat, which is the only company that owns the rights to extract Czech garnet from local mines, so you know you’re getting good quality. You can buy broaches, necklaces, rings and it doesn’t stop there. If it’s good enough for Emperor Rudolf II, it’s good enough for your passive-aggressive mother-in-law. Just kidding. Nothing is good enough for her. 480–83,000Kč+ www.granat-shop.com or or several locations through Prague.

We the two brothers at K have designed the décor of the restaurant in the spirit of what Kapurthala , a European holiday retreat could have looked like.
