The World on a String

Puppetry and marionettes have a long tradition in the Czech Republic and marionette theater dates back to the Middle Ages. The Truhlář family opened up their puppetry shop just across from the Charles Bridge in 1993, and inside you'll find a magical world of puppets hand-carved from wood and plaster by over fifty Czech makers, as well as those from the Truhlář collection. Pavel Truhlář has been involved in puppet theater since the 1990's, and his brother Daniel hand carves the lifelike figurines from linden wood.They can also create a custom-made “Mini Me” marionette in your likeness (just supply a photo, it takes about 3 to 6 weeks, so contact them well before your visit), and also offer marionette carving workshops where you can learn to make your own at their studio and workshop in the Vinohrady district.
