Prague is worthy of substantial reading, to make an optimal stay of four days. There is scarcely any internet resource that is an appropriate substitute for (a) good travel guide book(s) - - so I recommend you start at a good public library or bookstore.

That said, there are some solid internet resources, until you get there.

Start by clicking on "DESTINATIONS", on the top of any page on this website.

And www.essentialprague.com is very, very good.

As well as www.inyourpocket.com

Best wishes,

Rex

The Old Town and the Castle hill are the 2 main sights to visit. Of course there are others, but these are the most historic and informative.
Prague has great food, but we found 2 restaurants in the main area of Old Town that were coincidentally owned by thenKampa Group Restaurants.Kampa park is on the river with a fabulous view of the Charles Bridge and Kampa Square is
between old town and the Castle. Not cheap, but then again not overly pricy and the food is fantastic.
Of course Mac Donalds is there right by the Museum of Torture!
If you are staying near Old Town, use your feet and the trolly cars to get around. The trolly from Malostranske stop in Old Town will take you up the hill to the castle, unless you like a vigorous uphill climb. Both areas require a full day each to get the feel and atmosphere but not wear you out.
We were there 3 weeks ago and had a great time! Fantastic people and beautiful architecture!

I have a page of websites for Prague, as well as info on sightseeing and restaurants that I compiled when planning our trip in 2003. If you would like any or all, please e-mail me.

topping... wondering if mg48 saw any of the replies to these recent questions... mentions (on a July post), traveling to Budapest in October, but doesn't say when the departure was supposed to be.
