Sitting in the cellar of one of the Baroque palaces behind Tyn Cathedral, this attractive shop offers one of the broadest selections of English language books in the city, on shelves that are simply laid out and well labeled. There is a broad fiction section, a play section and an even larger non-fiction section with shelves for art, architecture, science, history, photography and design. The second room contains a small remainders section and a admirably large children's section, including Roald Dahl and Hermes' TinTin. Despite its location on one of the main tourist thoroughfares, it's a surprisingly quiet place to browse. But the higher than usual prices do reflect the shop's prime location. The staff are helpful and speak fluent English.
This exceptional little, hidden away bookshop has one of the most helpful English speaking staffs in the world. I always order my books at this shop when I am in Prague. The books always arrive in excellent condition and are sold to me at an superb discount. I wouldn't think of visiting Prague without many visits to this charming, well stocked shop.
