4. Shakespeare and Sons Bookstore


For those of a more literary mindset, just across the Charles Bridge from downtown, nestled back amongst a row of older settlement houses linking the river is the Shakespeare and Sons Bookstore. With an extensive used section and titles in both English and Czech, the two story book store and cafe offers a little something for fans of any genre. The childhood home of Franz Kafka has also been made into a museum and throughout the city you can easily find statues honoring the author.
