Are you visiting or living in Prague, Czech Republic? In any case, a trip to the mall may be just what you’re looking for. In fact, the Czech capital has a number of them. All are quite spacious and offer a wide range of amenities.
Cafés, restaurants, cinemas, stores… In short, there’s plenty to do. In this article, we present a list of some of Prague’s nicest shopping centers!
What are the best shopping centers in Prague?
Prague is home to many shopping centers. In the city center alone, there are between 4 and 6. So, if you want to find something to eat, drink or stay at home quickly and easily… The Czech capital is probably the place to be. Here, we present our list of the best shopping malls.
Palladium is, without doubt, Prague’s best-known shopping center. It’s right in the heart of the city center, on Republic Square. To get there, you can either take the metro or the streetcar. You can be pretty sure that, whichever means of transport you choose, you’ll be entitled to a stop on site.
On site, you’ll find over 180 stores. We’re thinking of both “classic” chains and more traditional stalls. The top floor is the temple of dining, with numerous fast-food outlets and other restaurants offering typical Asian and other dishes.
The Arkády Pankrác shopping center is located in the heart of Prague’s modern district. Easily accessible and densely populated, it’s the perfect location for a shopping center.
Arkády Pankrác covers an area of 40,000 m². It is (in our opinion) one of the two or three largest shopping centers in Prague. Here you’ll find 125 brands, including some of the best-known names such as Guess, Calvin Klein and Zara. The supermarket is downstairs, while there are restaurants on the top floor.
The Nový Smíchov shopping center can be reached from the Anděl metro station (line B). Smaller than the two mentioned above, this mall is also more “accessible” in terms of brands and prices.
You’ll find Marks & Spencer, Tesco, C&A, Mango and Promod. Mass-market brands. Finally, if you’re a film buff, you’ll love the Palace Cinema multiplex on the second floor.
Located in the heart of Prague 3, the Atrium is above the Flora metro station (green line). It boasts a wide variety of stores, with around 120 to choose from. On the top floor, in addition to the usual fast-food outlets, you’ll find a large IMAX cinema. The underground parking lot can accommodate 800 vehicles.
This Prague shopping center is also geared towards “classic” budgets. You won’t find any luxury brands, but rather the likes of Esprit, L’Occitane and Lacoste.
Metropole Zličín is a huge complex on the edge of Prague. We recommend that you get there by car. Transportation can be quite time-consuming. On site, you’ll have access to numerous shops, an IKEA as well as several cinemas, bowling alleys and theaters. In short, plenty to keep you entertained for a few hours. Not our favorite, but well worth a visit.
Myslbek is a shopping mall in Prague that bridges the gap between the Old Town and the New Town. The Myslbek building opened in 1996. On the building’s façade facing Na Příkopě street, you’ll find a striking stainless steel metal door weighing 8 tons.
On this site, you’ll find numerous cafés and restaurants, as well as several boutiques, including a Marionnaud Parfumerie, shoe stores and fashion stores. The Myslbek shopping center is open daily from 8.30am to 10am. Stores open at 9.00 am. On Sundays, opening hours are from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.
The OC Quadrio shopping center is located near the Národní třída metro stop (yellow line). Revamped and reworked, it offers a very pleasant setting. You’ll find a host of stores selling clothes, shoes and cosmetics.
In short, a classic gallery, just as we like it. Nearby, you can enjoy a delicious coffee at Mama Coffee. A chain that features on our list of the best cafés in Prague.
