Nice store concept and design. The overpowering smell of sugar in the air is a bit too much for me, but if it's called "Captain Candy" there's a good chance that this is exactly what you're after. However, their pricing policy puts it straight into...More

Funky looking candies, worth visiting if you are nearby Old town square. They also do vegetarian candies, and are really tasty..!

Hello, thank you for your review. The higher price is due to the quality of products which is our priority. We try to choose the best ones from whole Europe.

Loved the layout and choice of sweets, its in a prime location so prices reflect this but as you're on holiday it would be rude not to :)

Turist trap. Very average candy, payed 160koruna for 200 grams of candy... No way i'm going back... My advice: go through the shop and appreciate the colours, but don't buy anything...

square, overlooking Charles Bridge with Prague Castle
in the background, is probably the most beautiful
