Czech Republic Comments

Can't say anything bad about Prague, except perhaps for the behaviour of certain segments of its tourist population. Make sure you experience Zizkov's nightlife, pay a visit to a bar called the Blind Eye.
For a night out in Prague go to the square. There are heaps of young people there drinking beer from the kiosks (very cheap) and chatting in groups. It's a perfect place to meet new people, and the ones we met knew of good clubs to visit, so I'd recommend it as a starting point for your night out. Also beautiful when the church and town hall are lit up.
Český Krumlov … Cesky Krumlov is all good and you could just spent months here! Great place even in November when it was a little quieter than usual. This place has it's own very distinct character and is a real favourite. There's loads to eat and drink here - the medieval places are great, including an amazing veggie restaurant and you're basically spoilt for choice. Make sure you get out of Prague and see Cesky Krumlov - it's something you need to see experience, maybe several times...
Prague is a great city, a must visit town, excellent and very cheap restaurants, wild nightlife, and nice people.
I had the most wonderful experience with Free Prague tour during my June visit. The tourist guide was one of the best tour guides I've ever had. The tour he led in three-and-a-half hours covered so much that I don't think a regular tourist guide can even match it. He is definitely a history buff. What I was most impressed was the stories he told and the enthusiasm he demonstrated doing his job. The public artwork he took us to see was great (I love the Venus and the shoe and the man who sat on the belly of an cow hanged upside down from the ceiling).
If you're in Olomouc including a Sunday or Wednesday save your visit to the old Castle museum for then -- it's free! Even if you have to pay though, it's 50Kc, a third the price of castles in Prague Krakow and Cesky. And eat at the Hanachka Hospoda, best food of my trip and again, cheap -- half a roast chicken with sauerkraut and dumplings plus a beer for less than 100Kc.
