The Kotva Department store is located in Old Town Prague. When it was built in the early 1970s, during the Cold War, it was considered to be a great example of Communist construction and social planning. At the time it was the best and biggest shopping center in Czechoslovakia.

It is a large five-storey building, catering for a diverse range of tastes including jewelry, fashion, perfume and food. If you are looking for a traditional Czech made beret, this is the place to go. There is also a large supermarket located in the basement and it is has a well stocked sporting goods department.

Although not nearly as grand as the more modern Prague shopping complexes, it gives the shopper an insight into the standard of shops available during the time of the Communist government.

Its new owners have implemented a rebuild of the interior to try bring its décor up to a higher standard which it probably needs to keep competitive with the other shopping retailers. This modernization has caused some controversy as many people would prefer the building to be restored in character with its original décor and kept as an historical building.

Although modernization is well underway, there are still areas within the complex which take the visitor back in time and it is certainly worth a visit to experience both the old and the new.
