Of interest to anyone interested in beautiful things is the Czech Center’s Father’s Day Sale going on from now until June 30.  We’re open Monday-Saturday 10-4, so please do visit us at the Prague International Giftshop.  Hopefully in the future you’ll be able to find some of our merchandise for sale online, however there are no specific plans of action at this time.

Czech crystal, popularly considered to be some of the finest quality crystal in the world, dates back to at least the early Renaissance and some claim as early as the 2nd century.  Bohemian crystal enjoyed international success until the early 19th century when English lead crystal flooded the market.  It wasn’t until Czech glassmakers decided to reestablish the glory of handmade, handcut Bohemian glass, that they were able to fight back.
