    I would definitely recommend a climb up the very many steps of the Klementinum astronomical tower, to see how the Catholic monastery operated and how they told time. The sweeping view of the city from right in the center of Stare Mesto was a heady sight. And to view the library inside was breathtaking as well.

    Another thing that I would recommend is maybe trying a boat tour on the Vltava...something novel. though we opted not to do it, it seemed to be a very popular thing among tourists. You can dine and also have a boat cruise up/down the Vltava for a reasonable enough price.

    There are various clubs throughout Stare Mesto, if this is what you're primarily interested in. I recall one off Zelezna right across from Ovocny Trh, and of course, the really visible one from the east end of the Bridge. Vejvodova had another club that I remember, with a humungous bar.

    Well if you're not going to see any of their magnificent castles, museums, cathedrals, or anything then you might as well stay at home. You're going all the way to Europe for some nightclubs? They don't have any in Australia?

    If there are adrenalin junkies among you, try tandem skydiving near Prague (their slogan is The Best Way to Know Prague is at 200 Miles an Hour"). Their website is at :


    Have fun,
