What are 'real' Czech souveniners and which ones should be avoided?


Country: Czech Republic


Bohemian crystal, hand blown ornaments, original photos, antikvariat, wooden toys and marionettes are usually authentic, but check the country of origin, there are plenty chinese knockoffs. But there is nothing Czech about russian babushka (dolls within dolls), furry Soviet hats, scarfs that say Czech Republic or Praha or anything Santa. If you want a safe bet for something inexpensive, uniquly Czech and not availible anywhere else, just bring them a bottle of Becherovka or Slivovice.
