Prague is superb. You're going to have a great time wherever you stay. That said, if you're looking for a cheaper, more unique, less grotty experience, I'd advise avoiding the tourist areas around the Charles Bridge. Zizkov is pretty fantastic. Don't be afraid to wander.

I was there about two years ago and loved it. Be sure to learn to use the streetcar system. This article may be of interest.

Even if you're not a concert-goer, consider attending a concert in the Hall of Mirrors at the Klementinum. Magnificent setting! There were excellent and inexpensive concerts all over Eastern Europe.

When I visited Eastern Europe, I posted this thread of photos. Except for a few pics of a monastery we visited outside of Prague, none are directly relevant to your trip, but they may put you in the mood!

Here are a few picturesfrom Prague. No real science to the choices, just shots that grabbed my eye or sparked a memory.



Poster in the Museum of Communism. The caption reads: "No American Spy will get through our village! Help the National Safety Corps protect your United Agricultural Cooperative against Western Imperialists."



Cool door handle!






From an old Jewish cemetery







Interior detail of the Hall of Mirrors




We came early and had front row seats for our "concert" which I guess was more of a recital....
