Where else other than Prague were you? Belgrade is one of my favorite cities in all of Europe. Right up there with Barca. Also enjoyed Budapest and Krakow. I really like Eastern Europe.

i haven't, but my girlfriend spent 10 days there this past June.
She said it was fucking amazing. She took a shit ton of picture - none of which I have, sorry.

She said bring lots of money - shit there is EXPENSIVE.

She went for geology stuffs, so they spent alot of time in the interior (which isn't even passable during parts of the year), they did alot of hiking, and treking, both in volcanic remnants and on the glaciers.

the countryside is breathtaking. but its cold. duh. the sun was up almost 24 hours - it never really got dark. she said reykjavik is beautiful, and the other smaller cities are quite quaint.

i'm really jealous. i would love to go.
