Prague is located right in the heart of Europe and I'm not sure if it can be classified as Eastern Europe.  Prague might have been cheap place to visit in the past, but that's not the case now.  Beer is an exception though.  Pint of beer can be had at the pub for less than a dollar and it's quite good.  I'm starting to notice that American beer really sucks and it's no wonder why everyone drinks imported beers in the states.
 
Like Germany, Czechs drink loads of beer but I went bit further by drinking epson which is 70% alcohol.  You can literally feel the alcohol going all the way down to your stomach.  Ever since I came to Europe, I can hear my body screaming, "drink some water, you p.o.s.!!!"   well, that's for some other time and my body will have to endure.  You know, when in rome...
 
Before coming to Europe, I was most looking forward to visiting Prague and Barcelona.  Unfortunately, perhaps due to my high expectations, Prague was bit of a letdown.  Don't get me wrong, Prague is still beautiful, fairytale like city, but I had such high hopes.  It's just me so it's still worth a visit and you won't be alone because there are thousands and thousands of tourists here.

yes, indeed
james, i wished i had travelled to the countryside of Czech, but i wasn't able to due to various reasons. I now wished i had because i tend to like the smaller cities much more than the capital. on my next trip, i'll sure to visit the smaller cities in czech and i'm sure i'll enjoy it much more. thanks for the tip.

Prague sister town
I agree, Prague has crowds of tourists and sometimes I want to hide from them, find a place as beautiful as Prague and quiet. And I found in Czech Republic the world famous spa town of Karlovy Vary, also known by its German name of Karlsbad (or Carlsbad in English), was founded in 1350 by the Czech King and Holy Roman Emperor Charles IV.
The town's visitors stay in hotels not worse than in capital http://www.prague-hotels.org.uk/ and over the years have included Casanova, Ludwig van Beethoven, Wolfgang Amadeus
Mozart, Franz Kafka, Alphonse Mucha and many representatives of the world film industry who come to Karlovy Vary as guests of the International Film Festival held every year in July.
