If you love 1960s and 1970s stuff, you will enjoy the flea markets in Prague to your heart’s content. The Czechs are stripping their homes of everything that is old-fashioned and reminds them of Communist days, but what we call retro and vintage.
Buyers, viewers and browsers all try their luck at the Tylova flea market in Prague. What is junk to one, is invaluable to the other. This flea market has a limited number of vendors so that you can make a wise choice. True to say the items on offer are not unique. The same stuff you will find in the Prague antique shops. Not the upmarket ones in the historic centre, but those small antique-cum-junk shops in the suburbs.
