We went on an early honeymoon through Eastern Europe. We spent 4 days in Prague. We were there almost the last week of October 2010. I’m from CA and definitely love the warm weather.
Prague was chilly and sometimes cold, but not uncomfortable. I had a medium-light weight wool jacket that was lined. It was hip length (not long). I also had a pair of cheapy knit gloves, a scarf, and a hat. I was fine. I only wore the hat and scarf at night a few times to keep my ears warm. I wore jeans and good socks. My FI needed a hat more than me – due to his short hair (ears).
We walked late at night and it was still okay. The coldest I was – was on a river cruise. We sat on top vs. inside. That was cold – but it was mostly the wind.
It rained maybe 2x, but we still stayed out wandering around the city.
As long as we were moving I didn’t really feel the cold.
I loved it there. I also liked going in October. There were less tourists. It was beautiful (colors of the trees) and I actually enjoyed the weather. Plus, the spiced wine was out – soooo good.
We stayed at Hotel Sax. – http://www.hotelsax.cz/?r=3719126&gclid=CMq0_qG-kakCFQUDbAodRm5Upw
It wasnt a 5 star hotel. If you want American plush and really lux for your honeymoon, then I wouldnt consider it. However, it was nice, clean, and comfortable, was in a great location (close to the US embassy and a short walking distance to the tourist spots), had friendly staff, included a big breakfast including a buffet and a chef that would make you things to order, included a happy hour thing with food (we didnt go bc we were out and about), and the thing FI loved the most – it included a laptop in every room with free internet. I picked the sax online because it looked fun. Some of my other pics during this trip weren’t the best, but I’d stay at the Sax again.
I would say – you could probably see all the sights in 2 days. The main tourist stuff is all together. We even walked to the newer sections of town away from tourist central – which was a nice trek. Because we were going other places, we wished we spent 1 less day in Prague and 1 more day elsewhere.
