Truhlář Marionety
Puppetry has a long tradition in the Czech Republic. Puppet theatre dates back to the Middle Ages, while the making of marionettes can be traced back to the 18th-century. The Truhlář family opened up their marionety shop just across from the Charles Bridge in the early 1990s. Inside you can find a magical world of hand carved puppets from wood and plaster from over fifty Czech makers as well as those from the Truhlář collection. Pavel Truhlář has been involved in puppet theater since the 90s, while his brother Daniel hand carves the lifelike figurines from linden wood. Open to the public, their workshop space is located in Prague’s Vinohrady district. They can carve a custom made “Mini Me” marionette in the likeness of you (just supply a photo, it takes about 3 to 6 weeks, so of course get in contact way ahead of time) and also offer marionette making workshops where you can learn to carve your own.
