If you are looking for some interesting souvenirs and nick knacks from Prague look no further than the Green outside the Old Town Hall. The area has been set up as a marketplace will small stall holders selling everything from religious statues to tea towels and spoons and a great selection of bohemian glassware and matryoshka the Russian nesting dolls. The Green was once the north wing of the town hall but in 1945 as the German forces were leaving Prague they thought it was silly taking all their unused ammunition back to Berlin so they decided to use it destroying the Town Hall. It received extensive damage and the north wing was never replaced.
