The “Sberatel / Collector” fair is the largest meeting of collectors in Central and Eastern Europe, with more than 230 exhibitors from 35 countries of the world taking part in it every year. On the average, some 12,000, roughly a third of them from abroad, will find their way to the modern PVA Expo Letňany exhibition site, which is situated very close to a subway station.
The Sberatel / Collector international fair and its complementary events are supported by a massive promotional campaign which includes billboards, posters, advertisements in printed media and targeted presentations on relevant websites and social networks.
Our first priority is a satisfied visitor, which means that, apart from organizing the event in a professional and competent manner, we strive to bring as many quality exhibitors as possible there.
Heading for the fair are collectors of coins, medals, banknotes, securities, post stamps, postcards, telephone cards, minerals and gemstones. In the friendly and hospitable atmosphere of the event, they can make a good deal with one of more than 200 exhibitors and also enjoy a rich accompanying programme, which includes thematic numismatic and philatelic exhibitions, christenings of new stamps or medals, or meetings with renowned design artists. They can entrust their kids to a free Art Fabrika nursery; a restaurant, a café, and a lot of parking space are also available on the premises.
Prague now offers its visitors from abroad a number of unique historical monuments, rich architecture, a broad selection of restaurants and cafés, and uncountable shopping opportunities. It is a city which is friendly to families with children, and one can move on foot or use public transport without any problems in Prague´s centre. The “Sberatel / Collector” fair is a good occasion to visit Prague. Do not hesitate and come to see for yourself why Prague is called the “Golden Heart of Europe”.
As soon as you step in, you will see from the place´s decorations that the proprietor is an enthusiastic collector himself.

Ladies have free access to the “Sberatel /Collector” fair; in addition to coins, medals and post stamps, they will also find postcards, minerals and gemstones there. However, we know all too well that ladies prefer other collector´s items, such as shoes, clothing or jewels. When you are done with your purchases at the “Sberatel / Collector” fair, we have a few tips where to do shopping in Prague for you.
The Letňany Shopping Mall (www.oc-letnany.cz), the largest shopping centre in the Czech Republic, is just ten minutes´ drive from the exhibition site. However, the most frequented place is the Nový Smíchov Shopping Mall (www.novysmichov.eu), right above the Anděl Subway Station. If you move around the city´s centre, you cannot miss the Palladium Shopping Mall (www.palladiumpraha.cz), just a short walk from the Municipal House. Right across the street is the Kotva Department Store, which used to be the largest department store of the Communist Czechoslovakia (its rooftop restaurant offers a grand view of the Old Town). The Myslbek Shopping Gallery, Černá růže (Black Rose) and Slovanský dům (Slavonic House) are located almost next to each other along Na Příkopě Street, which bisects the centre of Prague. If a lady gets lost in this Bermuda Triangle, her escort can wait for her in one of the shops selling men´s fashion, gifts and accessories hidden in the so-called Gentlemen´s Passage connecting Na Příkopě Street and Ovocný Trh (Fruit Market) (www.panskapasaz.cz) . Or in one of the restaurants recommended on the first page …
Many new exhibitors and visitors of our International Trade Fair Collector (Sberatel) are asking about the border procedure when entering the Czech Republic by plane or car.
Please, take knowledge of absence of border. The borders of the Czech Republic are not subject to any passport or customs controls. Thus, the Czech border can be easily crossed without stopping just as is the case with the border between Germany and Austria or France and Belgium.
Since 27 December, 2007, the Czech Republic has been a member state of the Schengen Area, where all border controls have been cancelled. This is one of the reasons why organisers expect higher numbers of foreign visitors and dealers to the Collector fair.
