Prague in Depth: Shopping - Tábak/Trafika
Get to know the Czech retail environment
Like newsstands, a tabák's primary trade is usually in newspapers and magazines, with cigarettes, alcohol, candy, drinks, lottery tickets and public transit tickets sold almost as an afterthought.
Near tram stops, bus stops and metro stations you'll often find a trafika, a small booth that sells a similar range of products to a tabák.
A trafika tends to be smaller than a tabák and always sells public transit tickets, but otherwise the difference between the two is negligible.
