AMI Marionettes Shop, Prague

2 of 16

The Czechs take their marionettes seriously; in Prague, you can watch stringed “actors” perform complete Mozart operas at the National Marionette Theater. But that doesn’t mean every shop sells high-quality puppets. Skip the souvenir stands in tourist-clogged Old Town in favor of this gallery near Prague Castle, where you’ll find artist-carved linden-wood originals and antique rarities from the early 20th century. Look for marionette versions of the Good Soldier Švejk, a beloved fictional World War I–era soldier. loutky.cz
