    I went for the night boat trip too... quite nice. You'll need a fast lens, though, and for most of the buildings I had to zoom a bit.

    by the way, am heading to Prague this Sept... thinking of getting an UWA lens + tripod and take the Charles bridge at dusk. on the other hand the guidebook says there are pickpockets at Charles bridge (fortunately did not encounter such in my previous trip), so not 100% sure i'll really go ahead and do it. a friend of mine said he was followed by someone, he had to stop somewhere and wait for the guy to finally give up & leave. as for other places to shoot, there's lots of nice architecture in the town square. saw a wedding couple when i was there.

    Prague is a artsy place, lots of nice buildings to take picture and you are right about pickpockets. Not just at Charles Bridge but many places too. I was there years ago and my friend got pickpocketed. So be careful with your valuables, I will wear a pouch and it will be hidden under my jacket or sweater.

    I think you change Euros to their local currency (I think it's crowns). Went I went there 3 years back, there weren't that many shops that accept Euros (and if they did it wasn't a good exchange rate).

    For general info, check out: http://wikitravel.org/en/Prague

    Hi! Has anyone tried taking pictures of Charles Bridge at dawn? Read that it is usually full of tourists during the day and am contemplating doing it early in the morning when there are less people around. The picture used in Emirates' ad seems to be taken around that time. I'll be there in late Sep.

    Charles bridge was under renovation when i was there last year, i dunno if its completed or not... else, its a very nice place to visit... i like it better than Paris but it has become quite touristy nowadays... so eveywhere is tourist... expecially the Prague Castle...

    also have a taste of Czech beer... its better than German beer... i even visit the Pilsner Urquell brewery just for the kick of it...

    oh u can also try the czech version of budweiser, i dunno the history but its definitely better than the american version....

    will be there maybe slightly before then (20-24 Sep). can let u know if i'm successful...
    i think dawn is a good idea... probably less crowded & no one around aiming to pickpocket your stuff.

    on the other hand, i realize the city lighting at dawn might be different from night time.

    be careful of moneychangers who plan to cheat you. better pay a bit more, for peace of mind: see http://wikitravel.org/en/Prague#Stay_safe for the ways you might possibly be cheated.
