1Hi - and welcome to Thorn Tree.
Prague is nice in winter, although I prefer it in the summer. It can be jolly cold.
I don't do museums, but others here do - for sure. They'll give you advice on them.
All the rest of the places you mention.... Shops, bars etc., are there and open all year round.
Hope you have a nice trip.

2The Christmas markets will be open, try the hot wine and enjoy the atmosphere. The main one is in old town square though there are several more around the city. One indoor attraction which most tourists aren't aware of yet is the collection of twenty room-sized paintings of Alfons Mucha's Slav Epic which are now on permanent display in the Trade Fair Palace National Gallery. When the newly updated editions of the major travel guidebooks are published it will likely be listed as one of the city's top 10 attractions, so see it now before the crowds discover it.

this is a Trip AdvisorTrip report of a trip I made in early March 2006,( I am known as Unclegus over there) , a while ago i know but it may be of relevance to you,i was travelling with my good mate Andy .I am a regular traveller to Prague and this was the only time I have been in winter though i have tavelling in late spring summer and autumn. I often travel there on my own but often meet up with friends.If the weather is nice try and get out to some of the parks for a wander ,they really are lovely.Letna and Stromovka parks are my 2 favopurites.

4Hi, I'm in Prague now, it's rather cold but perfectly tolerable.
You can make some day-trips to Kutna Hora, for example, or if you like music, there are lots of music bars and jazz club. Non verbal theatre is another good option, and there is a good number of choices. Don't miss the mulled wine and trdlnik (sweet rolls with sugar and cinnamon, really tasty) they sell at the street markets. And you also can feed the swans and ducks at the Vltava if you walk by the riverside. If you want to buy souvenirs, of course it depends on how much you want to spend, but try to avoid the shops selling Russian dolls and other serial issues, and look for those which offer more original, hand-made products.
You'll find out what to do when you're here and very likely you'll be provided with a map and recommendations at your ho(s)tel. Coffee, beer and stuff is more expensive near the bridge, a capuccino may cost you around 70 czk, while you can have it for half that price at a bar in a less centrical area.
Hope this general info will help a little. Have a great stay in Prague!
