Four times a week, all around Zizkov’s picturesque Jiřího z Poděbrad square, one of the Czech Republic’s most well-known farmer’s markets comes to life. A genuinely great place to potter around for a few hours, trying everything from fresh fruit and apple strudel to a hearty bouillabaisse from the fish stand. While you’re there it’s also worth having a mooch around the nice cafes that surround the square. Mamacoffee in particular is known for its high quality beans. The markets official hours are 8am until 6pm Wednesday to Friday and then 8am to 2pm on Saturday. But go early!
Time Out tip: Be sure to turn up with cash money because - you guessed it - the majority of vendors don’t do card.
Zizkov TV Tower: Yes it’s covered in faceless baby sculptures, yes an entire one of its floors is a bizarre hotel room, but the viewing platform offers unrivalled views of the entire city.
NeverEnough: Fantastically welcoming streetwear boutique that also doubles as a bar and music venue occasionally. The t shirts often feature prints designed locally.
The Church of the Most Sacred Heart of Our Lord: Idiosyncratic Catholic house of worship, bang in the middle of the square. An enormous, modernist beaut.
