About Havel’s Market: Sitting in an alleyway type road with covered stalls, Havel Market has tons of fresh fruit, vegetables, crafts, and souvenirs.  The market is named after Václav Havel who was the last President of Czechoslovakia (1989–92) and the first President of the new Czech Republic (1993–2003).  He was a author and leader in Human Rights in the 1970s which got him in jail, but his role in the peaceful Velvet Revolution against Communism in 1989 led to his Presidency.  Havel is accredit with bringing Democracy to the Czech people.

At the Southwestern end of the market is Uhelný Trh Square which was the Coal Market back in the day.   In the middle of the old Coal Market is a small but cute fountain from 1797 showing a boy and girl playing with fruit under a tree.  Market Hours: Daily 9am-6pm.
