Recommendations on places/things to see?

The Honest Prague Guide is extremely helpful:

No proper game shops, unfortunately, but the Army Museum in Žižkov is worth a visit, as well as the Technical Museum.

Lucky you, been reading History of Frederick II series just starting Battle of Mollwitz. Plenty of sites to see from the 7yw to the Napoleoic age.

The Air Museum at Kbely is pretty good.

The Technical Museum is where the tanks are. It's a quaint train ride out of town.

Prague Castle is a must see. Go at lunchtime, they do a 'changing of the guard' routine.

A second vote for the Prague Castle. It is a beautiful city. I loved it there!

I'm told that the Museum of Communism is small but a must-see. Cold War Communism as seen through the eyes of those who actually had to endure it:

I would love to get my hands on some of their parody vintage "postcards".

The Alfons Mucha Museum

Aslo, get knodel for lunch for lunch some time. Blueberry stuffed ones are my fave.

Charles Bridge is great, the Turkish slaver statue was my favourite on there.

The Castle is a must. I was inside the castle rooms looking out over the views, when I noticed a plaque next to the window. It was the site of the Defenestration that started the Thirty Years War!

Just realised that the Technical Museum is sure to be closed in November.

Probably the threat of snow.

Day trip to Kutna Hora. St Barbara's is the prettiest cathedral I've ever seen (and I've seen a few). In Prague, you can probably catch a performance of "Don Giovanni" in the original theatre if you're a music lover.
"Nahore bez" (with a Czech accent over the r) at a bar means "on top without". Curiously respectable establishments,usually.
