Antique Ungelt


1 Tyn,

Czech Republic,

Ideal for visitors seeking high-quality souvenirs, Ungelt Courtyard is home to a number of small shops, including this fine antique store. Situated behind the Tyn Church, the courtyard began as a 12th-century marketplace where traveling merchants were required to pay customs duty (or ungelt, in Old German). The area deteriorated over the centuries until it was renovated between 1984 and 1996. Today, the courtyard is lined with stores like Antique Ungelt, which sells Art Nouveau porcelain alongside fine Baroque furniture.
