Untouched by twentieth century wars, Prague is probably Europe's best preserved large city, every bit as beautiful as I remembered it from 1996.  The very large historic area now seems to be a vicim of its own beauty, evolving beyond just touristy into another expensive playground for the beautiful people, full of swish hotels with day spas, glam night clubs, and French-Asian fusion cuisine restaurants.  Nevertheless, it's still possible to find a cheap bed and in a hostel fit for a Golem and a good plate of Moravian Wedding Feast (duck, roast goose, roast pork, smoked ham, sausages, 2 kinds of cabbage, and 3 kinds of dumplings dumplings).  We also had a merry old time at U Fleku, 500 year old beer hall that brews its own beer and entertains the masses with accordeon and tuba players dressed up like characters from The Good Soldier Schweik. 

Most of the Czech countryside also still looks especially quaint and storybooklike, except for a few spots where the Communists built monstrous industrial new towns.
