Music Shops

'Every Czech is a musician' - or so the saying goes. Whether you've broken a string playing your guitar on Charles Bridge or collect antique violins, you will find everything you need in Prague. Here we include for you a small selection of shops that specialize in musical instruments and some that sell CD's and vinyl.

Hudební nástroje - Jakub Lis
Naprstková 10
Prague 1

Small and cheery music shop with a fair selection of second-hand electric and acoustic guitars, violins, cellos, accordions and Indian and African drums. All this plus all the usual musicians' paraphernalia - strings, resin and reeds.

Praha Music Centre
Revolucnií 19
Prague 1

Caters admirably to 'plugged-in' musicians. There's all the unusual equipment and it's especially good for pick-ups, pedals and second-hand amps. Other branches: Soukenická 20, Prague 1, Klimentská 34, Prague 1.

Bontonland Megastore
Václavské nám. 1
Prague 1

The first western-style music megastore in Central Europe. Opened in 1996, it sells videos, DVDs, CD-roms, books as well as CDs and cassettes of most genres. There's rock and pop and some 'non-mainstream' and Czech music. It has to be said though that the selection is still rather limited by western standards and the prices are only slightly cheaper than you would pay at home.

Benediktská 7
Prague 1

This tiny, family-run ethnic music store stocks everything from Zimbabwean marimba music to Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan plus a fair selection of Moravian folk music and Czech alternative music. The Polish owner is more than happy to let you listen to your chosen CD before purchasing and, if you are lucky, you might even get offered a cup of tea!
