At the crossroads of Greifenhagener Straße and Stargarder Straße, among many cozy Prenzlauer Berg’s bars and restaurants and in front of Gethsemane Church, there is a little shop that one can not find on Google Maps nor it is open every working day: Troika, a shop with a lot of lovely old stuff and books. If one absolutely wishes to visit this shop, sure, one can call their shopkeepers. Otherwise, one should just enjoy a drink, a piece of pizza or a bowl of phở and wait for luck.

Troika looks like an occasional shop with an extension of a mini-flea-market, very charming, especially when it is open until late evening, which is something rare in Prenzlauer Berg, or even in Berlin. The shop inside looks like a little nostalgic treasure, but even when it is opened, visitors are not always welcomed to go inside. I found a lovely book written by Saxon Sinologist Franz Kuhn (1884-1961) and a pile of world fairy tales there, with a friendly discount from the boss.
