I'm going at the end of April for three days in each city. What should I check out, and what should I avoid?
check out the museum of communism in praha. and avoid the trams, they hurt.
Torture Museum in Prague.
There used to be a decent canal-side bar/club called Flex in Vienna.
Go for lunch in Bratislava old town - about an hour from Vienna on the train.
Prague - The astronomical clock, the castle..
Vienna - museum quarter
I used to live in Prague in the seventies.
Strahov Library is always worth a visit. The modern art museum which used to house the secret police. Hradcany castle. The Ziskov TV tower. The Jewish cemetery. Franz Kafka cafe. Church of St. Cyril where Heydrich's assassins killed themselves after being trapped by the Nazis. The village of Lidice on the outskirts of Prague is a depressing visit for its history.
Don't know shit about Vienna.
Vienna has good taste in electronic music (esp D'n'B) and they have hard doors!
seconded on that museum of communisim. also just cross the river and climb up to the castle by way of the north east side, you get a couple really great views of the city.
KGB museum, run by a crazy Russian bloke who is worth the entrance fee alone.
Good start. More please.
Anything design-related I should check out in either city?
Jože Plečnik. Any fucking building he designed.
And hop over to Bratislava as well, party in Nu Spirit club
One last bump.
Leopoldsberg hill for views in Vienna
oh.... and you must go to club k5. :-)
@Vienna: All around the Donaukanal, near the Flex-Club. Many good places to eat, drink, dance and spray graffiti.
