walk if you have to
if you have to take a taxi, it's best for you to tell the driver how much you're gonna pay for it. They'll charge you extra for sure if you don't come to agreement about the price. Fortunately we had a guy who speaks the local language, so he just told the driver that we'll pay for example 100kr from Roxy to our hostel. He was first against it but somehow it all went well and we got back to our hostel.
Be careful with the taxi drivers, they love to "rob" tourists!
St Vitus Cathedral
St Vitus was begun to build in 1344. Official date of final works is 1929. In spite of building works lasted more than 600 years, the gothic style is in every detail of the cathedral. It is pity but when I visited the castle, the cathedral was closed and I couldn't enjoy interior.
Be prepared to visit Prague
A simple, empty bag to Prague, this in order to fill it up with many souvernirs when going back to yr hometown Be sure to bring a comfortable pair of shoes, there is so much to see in Prague you tend to walk from one sight to another.
In December warm clothes protecting against rain, cold and even snow. Digital camera and at least a 2MB memory card Advanced reading of good documentation, or hiring a local professional guide talking your language. But reading, you should and will do before any journey, no?

Did you know...............
.............that the uniform worn by the guards in the castle was designed by the chap who did the costumes for the film 'Amadeus'? Bet you didn't (unless you've read the same guidebook as me)! They were chosen by Vaclav Havel himself.
I was more impressed by the way the guards entirely and totally ignored the group of young female visitors who were giggling and photographing and generally enjoying themselves around them. The guards remained stone-faced and entirely stoical throughout. Mind you, the Lifeguards on Horseguards Parade in London are the same, so perhaps it's a major part of their training?
