There's lots to do in Prague
For architectural buffs, for example, there is a raft of styles that should keep you thoroughly entertained for the entirety of your trip. According to eTurboNews, the historical centre of the region - which incorporates the New Town, Charles Bridge and the Jewish quarter - contains all sorts of treasures, ranging from "Romanesque rotundas, Gothic cathedrals, Baroque and Renaissance palaces, art nouveau, neo-classical, cubist and functionalist houses and contemporary structures".
However, pretty buildings isn't all that's on offer in Prague and if you prefer to check out art and sculptures and other forms of culture, then museum-hopping and theatre-going could be lots of fun. The news source noted that the area was made a Unesco world culture heritage site in 1992 - one of nine cities in Europe that boasts this honour - and it has ten theatres, many galleries and splendid concert halls that showcase big-time artists.
Of course, if you prefer to traipse around a city getting to know it as best you can in the short time you're there, then Prague is good for this as well. The website recommended "a walk through the gas-lit narrow streets, a kiss under a tree in blossom in a Baroque garden, a cruise on a historical steamship, night time at a castle or chateau [or] a ride on a steam train".
Prague is also home to many jazz clubs, which could be a fun way to pass the time. Kerry Kubilius of About.com recently suggested the AghaRTA, which has a line up of acts two months in advance.
