The name Palladium comes from the metal palladium. It is one of the most expensive metals in the world, even more expensive than gold.
There is a noticeable number of foreign tourists coming to Palladium Prague. Many of them are from overseas. For example, the Czech Republic is considered one of the cheapest countries in Europe in the USA, Asia and Australia. In fact, we saw many things in the Palladium shopping center that are cheaper than in Germany. However, this is by far not true for everything. Nevertheless, even as a German in the Czech Republic you can buy one or the other thing cheaply. Even branded products, clothing, jewelry, bags and shoes can be a bargain.
Only a 2 minute walk from Palladium Shopping is the great Museum of Communism Prague
