Exciting things can be very individual :-).

Historical sights can be exciting for one, for the others nightlife or sport venues, depends...

I think that just walk, see the architecture, visit Prague castle and other major historical parts, have coffee in a coffee shop and a nice dinner in the evening (many restaurants have music performance), go dancing ... just relax.

But watch your wallet and DO NOT INTEND to DRIVE in Prague.

The best way to enjoy Prague is to walk and keep walking:) . Pick up one of the many free maps, they show all the historical sights and places of interest. The architecture is the most beautiful you will ever see and the food and beer is to die for !!!!!!!!!!!! :D :D

It really depends on what you like.
When I get to a foreign city I don't know I usually pick a map, see the touristic sights and if I have enough time I would just walk. You know just, without an idea where I am going, I would turn to streets that looks interesting and I would just keep walking and after a while, usually longer while, I'd look into a map, see where am I and get back somehow.
Last time I did this was in Antwerp, Brugge and Brussels and I really did find interesting places, shops, streets, buildings and usually without tourists.

You may try to do that in Prague.

And what else interesting you may see in Prague? It really depends on what you like. Do you like parks? Muzeums? Galleries? Architecture? What one may find interesting doesn't have to be interesting for someone else.

I personally like walking and finding new places, that's why I usually don't take a tram, but just walk.

Thanks to all of you for the information. I tend to like nightlife and outdoors more. But I don't mind visiting historical places as well. I visited Paris in 2000 and loved it; is Prague somehow similar to Paris?

If you loved Paris, you may never leave Prague. :D

BTW, there are a lot of fun clubs in Prague catering to all sorts of people. I'm sure you won't have any problems finding them once you get there. Perhaps someone on the forum can suggest a starting point or do a quick search of the forum (try "clubs" or related terms).

Have a great time!

Moqwen,
Prague is a historical city itself. So if you want to go out at night, you will definitely see some history too.
Well, from American point of view I might say that Prague is similar to Paris. From my European point of view is not (btw Prague resembles to Vienna much more).
But yes - you go out in the evening, you have a little walk in the center, dinner in a restaurant, go to the club or whatever you want to do & the old architecture and the atmosphere will follow you.

From historical point of view you should at least visit the Prague Castle and the Charles' bridge (not doing so is like skipping Tour d'Eiffel and Louvre in Paris).
Wishing to find people with the same roots (e.g. Czech) or interested in learning Czech language.

Also take extra memory for your camera and take loads of pictures and hopefully it will be a trip that you will never forget :) :)
