Cost per day in Prague - splurging

Hello everyone. Great forum! This is my first post here.

I'm planning my honeymoon for Prague in May for ten nights. We already have our flight and hotel booked. I'm trying to come up with a realistic budget while I'm there. I've seen the backpackers index and many other estimates on cost. However, they all seem to be budget-minded writeups. I'd like to be able to splurge while I'm there, and I'd like to be able to budget accordingly.

We'll be drinking quite a bit, having nicer sit down…

Budapest or Prague, which is better.

We are in our 50s, interested in general sightseeing, people watching, cafes, castles, river cruises etc. Which city should we spend longer in, for a weeks break during a longish Europe stay. Please reply if you have spent time in both cities.

Camping

Can anyone advise if there are many camping grounds with cabins for 2 around Czech Rep and Prague. Found one at EUR89 a night which seems dear as can get an apartment for less in Prague, but also looking in the countryside.
Not much luck googling it.

Driving parts of Western & Eastern Europe

Hi all - I am new to this forum, but not completely new to travelling.

My wife and I are planning a driving trip from UK through parts of both Western & Eastern Europe for about 36 days starting in May.

Not sure which of the Europe forums I should be posting on as we will be in both areas, but as I have a specific question regarding Poland, I am guessing it should be in here.

The itinerary is below, but here is the question -:

We are travelling into Poland and will be visiting Auschwitz,…

Quick place to buy winter clothes in Prague?

Hi!
We'll be in Prague for a few days in January, staying on na Florenci. If we wake up the first morning and realize we're underdressed, where can we quickly go by taxi to buy warm, inexpensive coats/socks/underwear (and possibly boots)? They needn't be very high quality, just good enough to keep us from freezing. Not that we're coming in shorts and T-shirts, but just in case.

Czech republic as an EU citizen without a passport

Hello thorn tree

I'm a Danish citizen planning on going to Prague for new years. Unfortunately I won't have my new passport before mid January.
Will it be a problem for me going to cz without it? What are the potential consequences if any?

Unlike other EU countries we don't have national ID's in Denmark, which means the passport is our only legal travel document. Even within the EU. Are Czech authorities likely to know this?

Posting from Prague

Hi all, I'm hoping someone can help. I've googled for ages but can't find an answer.

I'm going to be in Prague for Christmas as part of a month long backpacking trip. I want to buy some Czech crystal glasses but don't fancy carting them around for another three weeks. Id rather post them home.

Does anyone know how long surface mail takes between the Czech Republic and the UK? If it arrives too soon I wont be able to collect it and the post office might not hold it until I'm back. An idea of…

12 days itinerary from Prague to Budapest via train and bus in late November?

I'm headed to Prague mid November and I fly out of Budapest 12 days later.
In 1995 I did 45 days in Sept/Oct in Poland/Czech/Slovak/Poland/Hungary.
Saw big cities and small cities. Presov, Porad, Eger, ceske budejovice, Karlovy Vary were some favorite smaller places.
My question - does anyone have a recco for a train/bus itinerary for 12 days starting in Prague and ending in Budapest?
In '95 it was pretty nice weather and lots of daylight hours. My concern is that it'll be colder and less…
