Prague vs. Budapest for Christmas

Prague vs. Budapest for Christmas
Oct 18, 2006, 6:10 PM

My partner and I are loooking for a romantic getaway Christmas weekend and are choosing between Prague and Budapest. The truth is it will likely come down to airfare, but which city is better in the winter weather and around the holiday?

Anyone been to either around this time, did you feel restricted on what sites you could see during winter? I've actually been to both for a very short time in summer and we want to use this an an opportunity to explore one city well whiel our kids are with their grandparents!

Any and all advice is welcome!

Both have real winters and it's possible to get substantial snow and cold. While I love Budapest I really prefer Prague, perhaps since part of my heritage is Czech but I don;t think you can go wrong in either place as long as you have proper winter clothing/boots.
