Prague is cuter. Another thing is the river, I found it was easier to find and enjoy a bar by the river in Prague, important to me in nice weather....

We just came home from a trip to both. Depends on what you like; Prague was more touristy, not as much in Budapest. BOth have great castle, bridges, and basilicas. Prague has day trip to Kutna Hora. Budapest has the Great Market, which, is a huge farmers type market on the ground floor and souvenirs on the top, that was alot of fun. Turkish baths in Budapest; that was cool too, And Budapest has more to see in the Jewish Quarter and Synagogue.Prague has more classical music concerts. I would try to do both; we got to Prague on a Saturday midday, and was there until the midnight train to Budapest on Tuesday, then there until Saturday. Was plenty of time in both so see the highlights.

I would recommend Prague and Budapest before Vienna. And Prague before Budapest, of course.

We've been to all three, Vienna for a week on one trip, just back last week from a Prague/Budapest week long trip. We'd definitely go Vienna number one by far, then Budapest, then Prague.

We're more into sight seeing i.e. churches, castles, museums; and not bars, dancing and for those interests Vienna was our favorite.

We went to all three in December 2011, with about 3 days in each city. Budapest was by far the favorite, followed by Prague and then Vienna. We are not at all into bars, dancing, and nightlife, and did not engage in any of that during our trip. Budapest was the most affordable and most authentic, where we felt we actually caught a glimpse of its true culture and not just manufactured/tourist sites. Prague was beautiful, but very crowded and touristy. Vienna was a nice city, but it didn't seem to have the same charm or warmth, and was the most expensive of the three. To respond someone else's comment about Prague having the most options for classical music, I'm not sure that is necessarily the case. We went to Budapest first and wanted to go to a classical concert, and had a variety of options on Friday night. We ended up at the Budapest Opera house, which is an amazing historic building, for a very reasonable price (I think it was around $35 US per ticket). Once we arrived in Prague and learned that the concerts were much less affordable, we were happy that we had gone when we had. We didn't even consider going to a concert in Vienna due to the expense.

Prague may be Disney without the vowels, but I love it nonetheless!
