You will not only find bars and cafés at Újezd. On the corner, there is also a shop you might not have seen before. In Czech, this kind of shop is called “vetešnictví” (literally “junk-shop”) and they were quite popular some hundred years ago. There are not many left these days and that makes this one even more special (I bet it has been there for at least a century).
In this shop you can get just about anything. Old postcards, sewing machines, musical instruments, books, maps, dishes, coffee pots, beer bottles – to start with. Everyone will probably find their sort of thing and won’t leave empty-handed. The prices are naturally very low, although perhaps if you start speaking some other language than Czech, you might get a mark-up.
When you come in, it feels like another world. The room is very dark and crowded with all kinds of stuff. However, they have very short and somewhat irregular opening hours so just try your luck when passing by. Oh, and if you are really broke, you can sell some stuff too…
