The area
Address
Neighbourhood: Stare Mesto (Old Town)
One of the oldest neighbourhoods in town represents the medieval heart of Prague. It’s no surprise it is bustling with tourists every time of day. Križovnický square, overlooking Charles Bridge with Prague Castle in the background, is probably the most beautiful square in the city. Its unique historical atmosphere of gothic houses and churches, cobblestone streets and squares, and stone towers blend together with the modern era. A vast array of bars, restaurants, dance clubs, international brand shops, galleries and hotels bring life to the old city. With its charming and picturesque cobblestone streets, the nightlife and parties will surely be unforgettable.
How to get there
  • Old Town • 4 min walk

    Amazing Experience
    We found this during a last minute search of activities to do in Prague and it ended up being our favorite of the trip. Dave is awesome and he creates some very beautiful pieces (if it’s not beautiful, it’s your own fault). We weren’t able to come back the following day to pick up our finished pieces, but they ship so it worked perfectly. The gallery also had lots of pretty pieces with very reasonable prices. Can’t recommend this place more, you have to go!

    10/10 Experience! So much fun
    David and the team were incredible and so friendly! Awesome experience and so much fun. David was very knowledgeable and so much fun to talk to. I got to make a bowl with my own colour choice. Is an experience I would never ever forget and if I had more time left in Prague, I would definitely come back.

    Beer blowing for beginners
    Both Anne and Dave were really fun and helped us make a fancy bespoke handle for our lovely beer glasses. The girl on reception was also very flexible around our other holiday plans. Awesome people, tasty beer 😊

    Experience like never before!
    We attended this workshop as a family of four (2 couples). David and Ann are personable and easy to work with. They are extremely knowledgeable and patient with us newbies. Obviously the completed items say more about their skills than ours but it was still so personalized. The class was a new and fascinating experience and the items we made will be our favorite items from our trip!

    Artistry in front of your eyes!
    Fantastic experience to see glass art made in front of your eyes. David and Ann were true experts of the craft and very kind and helpful. They let you do most of the stuff and are happy to answer all questions.

    Glass blowing
    David was very kind and he made it a nice experience to have for our last day in Prague. I totally recommend trying this out, it makes a unique souvenir to take home. You have to make an appointment though and do it so the glass you make can cool for 12 hours before picking them up the next day. Loved it, 10/10

    Fun and educational glass blowing experience
    So much fun! I learned a bit about glass blowing, got to actually handle some of it under Dave's expert guidance, and got a one-of-a-kind personalized piece to take home. I can't recommend it highly enough.

    Glass blowing class with the Aussie
    David was lots of fun and even made science funny. The glass blowing was fun and easy and David made it interesting and fun. It does get hot and the piece does take 12 hours to cool but it was so worth it.

    Glass Blowing at Pragl with David
    OMG!! If you don’t get to Pragl and do some glass blowing with David, you don’t know what you are missing. What a fantastic and fun experience. David was such an excellent host and teacher, included us in everything and shared his knowledge and passion for glass blowing. By far one of our best and favorite activities on our European trip so far. Thank you David for such a great time. Getting to drink beer as we make beer glasses can’t be beat. Everyone, don’t miss out on this amazing experience

    Amazing workshop with Anna
    We thoroughly enjoyed getting to make our own pieces at PRAGL. I was surprised by how much we were able to get involved (some parts wouldn’t be safe or sensible). It’s something different to do and produces a lovely memento Anna took the session with us and she was brilliant. So friendly, skilled, and knowledgeable. She really made the experience for us and had the patience to make sure we got to really enjoy ourselves

We had a fantastic experience at Pragl making glass creations with David! I highly recommend it. It was very affordable and you get to make a one of a kind souvenir to take home. We all had so much fun! You get to help shape and blow your own glass object of your choosing. Don't miss out on this one. We'll be back again soon. If you are trying to book for multiple people, just email them so you get the right amount of time booked for your group.

What a place. The reception staff couldn't have been more helpful and friendly for the booking process, decided to come back the next day to do our workshop. Dave, the resident glassblower was a bundle of joy. He couldn't have made us feel more comfortable and encouraged us as though we were professional glass blowers ourselves. An absolute gentleman. For couples, singles or groups I'd whole heartedly recommend all try out this extremely affordable and extremely fun day activity. What a place.

My boyfriend and me came to Pragl for a glass blowing workshop, to each make our own creation (a carafe and an engraved plate) after viewing the contemporary glass pieces in adjacent gallery. David was great, friendly and relaxed, and helped us both bring our ideas to life! After offering us free beer (on tap!), he was generous with time, and talked us through the process step by step, letting us have a go at shaping the glass as well as blowing. We even had a chance to try our hand at engraving our piece the next day, when it had cooled down. Definitely a highlight of our first trip to Prague!

The team are so professional especially David the glass blower who is the genuine article! He exudes passion for having fun and making beautiful pieces of glass. I chose the beer mug, and my daughters chose to make flowers and one Christmas tree bauble. All gorgeous colors and styles to choose from. We had a beer, and a hands on experience where you assist David in making your glass piece. It was a wonderful experience and was nice to get out of the cold for some lovely heat from the furnace!! I would highly HIGHLY recommend it for a great 40 minute experience of a Czech glass blowing tradition.

Great way to spend an hour learning about glass making and participating in the process of creating something to take home with you. We recommend choosing the custom design class so that you can participate in the design process and make something unique that you can display in your home. The folks at pragl are great and made this hour a lot of fun, the included beer was great too!

Make a reservation online ahead of time and keep in mind that the glass must cool in ovens over time, so you'll need to leave time to pick the glass up the next afternoon. We cut it close with our flight the next day, but the friendly folks at pragl helped to make sure we got our glass in time.

I couldn't recommend this experience any more, I had such a great time with Dave and Takeshi at their glass blowing workshop, both are extremely talented and use all their skills in helping you create the perfect authentic Czech souvenir to remember Prague by. They helped me make an amazing beer mug but nothing is too difficult for them and they are happy to help you make anything. Make sure to stick around the workshop after you have finished and have a beer and watch the masters at work. they're both very friendly and love to have a chat. Don't forget to look around the breathtaking collection there as well.

So glad to have stumbled across this experience. Dave was awesome! Not only very talented, but he also made us feel like old friends. We chose to make a mug/cup, and it was the perfect amount of involvement and interaction for a personalised but usable vessel at the end.

Would recommend at least stopping in to watch the glass blowing take shape and to enjoy a free beer with Dave! A memorable experience for sure.

I walked into this glass blowing studio with no prior expectations and was completely blown away. Clearly an experienced and masterful glassblower, Dave was comfortably able to walk me through the design and production of my own works. It was an absolute honour and a pleasure to have a chat and share a few beers with one of the friendliest and most sociable guys I have met whilst travelling overseas, thanks Dave! Plus I was able to walk away with the glasses that I had designed!! A must do whilst in prague, please do yourself a favour and check it out. The gallery is also super cool and definitely worth a look.

This is a fantastic way to experience glass art and sculpture up close. David was an excellent teacher and an extremely talented artist. He made the experience of ideating and creating our beautiful stemless wineglasses such pleasure. If you have any interest in learning and experiencing the secret of glass sculpture, please try this workshop! Thanks again to Dave at PRAGL for such a fun afternoon!

The whole experience was relaxed and fun.
David made me feel welcome and we got down to discuss world views, creative mysteries and glass (of course) straight away.

I was worried I wouldn’t actually get to set lips to a rod!
But I got to put my own breath into my own piece, and help smooth, carry and fire the glass! So I was really chuffed.

David delivers a lot of information fast, but in a way that you can grasp it and remember it.

I would DEFINITELY recommend this to anyone that wants a unique memento of Prague and not you run of the mill tacky souvenir shop items!!

An experience and a souvenir in one!
And a glass blower’s beer in a hand made glass too!
