Bohemia and Prague are famous for their glassware, and finding beautiful pieces is very easy. Many of the shops offer delivery to your hotel, or to your home, if you don't want the trouble transporting yourself. Bohemia crystal is primarily famous because of its brilliant colours, craftsmanship and fine cutting and blowing.

You will have to spend at bit of time looking around at the smaller shops away from the main tourist routes, if you are looking for crystal at bargain prices. Other possibilities are to visit the factory stores. The disadvantage is that you will have to travel and that the selection is limited to the particular line of the factory. If you choose to visit Karlsstejn, we can recommend that you take a look at the glassware shops near the castle, as they often have some nice bargains.
