LoutkyTypical Prague crafts
Nerudova Street, on the way to the castle, is one of the most enchanting in Prague. It is dedicated to the poet, Jan Neruda. It’s quite steep but well worth the effort for the colourful souvenir shops, and puppet makers, a traditional craft in Prague. Loutky has a huge variety of puppets and marionettes made from different materials such as gypsum or wood. Some are charming, like Pinocchio, the mermaids and the ballerinas; others frightening.
