January 1 in Prague

I will be in Prague for one day only on New Years Day, January 1, 2006. Does anyone know if museums, shops, etc. are generally open? Also, are things as cheap as they used to be? I was there in 1993 and a Pilsner Urquell was less than a dollar US. Is Bratislava a better choice? (Traveling from Vienna for the day.)

1. Re: January 1 in Prague

Most attractions are closed on New Years Day, but for one day, you will not have time to go in any attractions. You may though find that with the 5 hours it takes from Vienna to Prague that you may find that the trip is not worthwhile, and on 1 January public transport between the two cities is very restricted (the same to Bratislava).

The best thing to do on January 1st, is listen / watch the New Years Day concert from the Musikverein (watch on TV, if you cannot afford the ticket), take the metro out to Schnonbronn to wonder in the gardens in the snow and visit a good Vienese coffee house.
