The elegant avenue of Pařížská is lined with international designer houses including Dior, Boss, Armani and Louis Vuitton, while the backstreets to its east are home to lots of little boutiques operated by Czech fashion designers. In contrast, the winding lanes between Old Town Square and Charles Bridge are thronged with tacky souvenir shops flaunting puppets, Russian dolls and 'Czech This Out' T-shirts.
