Curiosities and Handicraft

•    Czech marionettes – You will see them hanging on every souvenir shop in Prague. Czech marionettes are hand carved from wood and they are among the most complex in the world to operate because they can have a rod which runs through the body and into the head with strings for the arms and the legs or just have strings attached to shoulders, back and head instead of the nod. The most popular puppet shops are
