“Best contemporary eclectic shopping in Prague!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 October 2011

After scouring Prague for contemporary jewelry and other fun knick-knacks, I have determined hands down, that Artel wins! I bought so many fun costume and czech-designed jewelry, all at affordable prices...visit both the shop in the main district near Old Town Square, and also the one on the other side of the river, to the right over the Charles Bridge. It's worth going out of your way for...and they have beautiful contemporary glasses....

“Best concept store in Prague”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 September 2011

I was really glad to find that place which I was aware of after my friends' recomendations. That is really great that Karen as a business owner could find a way to get a new vision of classical Bohemian glass, which now looks fresh and modern. Accessories and design- objects are worth buying as well. The store design is great, the staff is polite and welcoming. I put the best mark as it is really a place where you can find something to buy every time you enter it.

“Our favorite shop in Prague”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 July 2011

We live in Prague and we still love Artel. When we're looking for gifts for birthdays, weddings, OURSELVES ;) we head straight to Artel. There's always something new and unusual in the shop. Caveat emptor: It's impossible to stop in and not buy something!

“beautiful, contemporary crystal!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 June 2011

I was recently in Prague and this shop turned our heads at first glance. The crystal is beautifully designed- with some new takes on traditional patterns as well as new contemporary patterns, very geometric and lots of beautiful colors. Its the perfect mix of traditional Czech crystal with modern design. We bought several pieces and had them shipped to the US (shipping to US is very easy with them) and we were able to choose our own color and pattern combination. The store is full of lovely pieces and the sales staff extremely helpful in helping us to choose. We also found some lovely locally made jewelry.
