cool/quirky things to see/attractions for young people

Hey. I'm going with a group of guys all of us around 19/20 in feb. I was wondering what attractions you would recommend for us. To give you some idea, yes we'd like to see the old buildings and whatnot to soak up some of the vibes and culture of prague, but we thought the torture museum would be quite cool, and the john wall lennon... oh and not forgetting the segways haha thanks, any suggestions be much appreciated x

7 days is quite a long time to spend in Prague. I've just checked on Ice Hockey - the season finishes on 20th February - then play offs no dates set as yet - so that's out

The football season does not start until after you leave - so that's out.

You should make some trips outside Prague

1. for the good of your soul - visit the brewery in Pilsen - a good day out -

2. for something intelectual - visit Kutna Hora - an hour by train from Prague

and for the rest of the time, just do your best - visit as many pubs as you can manage - I think that was your main intention anyway as I remember from your first post.

Hello!

Regarding popular clubs and music bars: it really depends on your taste of music and if you prefer to mix with locals or tourists....All mentioned places bellow are focused on young people mainly:

Well known clubs in the city center are:

http://www.chapeaurouge.cz/en/

http://new.roxy.cz/interstitial.aspx

http://lucerna.musicbar.cz/

There are 2 other popular places at the edge of the city center:

http://www.palacakropolis.com/

http://www.bukanyr.cz/

That's a house boat music bar which runs during a winter, too :-)

Have lots of fun!

Definitely check out the "Men making pee" sculpture by Cerny (as our guide called it.) A bunch of guys drinking would probably enjoy this!

The people in Prague are wonderful so you will have fun.

Prague has the longest escalator in Europe at 290 feet (88 m), located at the Náměstí Míru station; neat, not necessary quirky, but could take a few pictures.

The Prague National Monument at Vitkov has an interesting and rather inspiring history of Czech freedom and repression in the modern era. It is also one big honking monument.

But none of that qualifies as cool or quirky. What might is the knowledge that the body of Klement Gottwald was kept on display there from 1953 to 1962, when a refrigeration malfunction led to some pretty major decomposition, at which time they cremated his remains.

You can see where the bodies were kept, and then you can go under the monument to see the control rooms where all the mausoleum gear was operated. All manner of devices which are completely unexplained, and probably inexplicable to all but the most devoted students of 20th Century embalming.

Educational upstairs and almost macabre downstairs. That strikes me as cool/quirky, but then again I am some distance removed from my teen years.

As for drinking, at least once get Pilsner Urquell in its unpasteurized form. You can get it in small quantities by taking the suggested day trip to Plzn, or you can ask around Prague for where to find a "tankova" which is the term used for those few places permitted to sell the noble pivo in unpasteurized form. LOKAL on Dlouha is one place that comes to mind, but it is more restaurant than pub, so you might want to ask around.

I thought the Museum of Communism was pretty cool/quirky as was the Black Light Theatre.
