You want to do all this in 10 days as well as seeing your daughter? None are outside Schengen

you will not have time do most of these things...you need to pick only 1 or 2 destinations and then make a plan.

there is not much in Liberec, the TV tower and zoo are the main things.

Dresden is not convenient in this case-I would skip it.

Berlin, Krakow are too far

I would pick Budapest or Vienna since they are capital cities. Even though I prefer Budapest-Vienna would be more of a contrast to Prague.

best mode is by train..do not buy EuroRail, EuroPass etc..book directly with respective train websites...lots of previous info regarding train travel....when booking there is no need for first class or for seat reservation.

there is a lot of info about Prague, Vienna and Budapest combo..simply use the search box above and previous posts will appear and answer a lot of your questions

I request you to kindly advise a fresh any destinations worth visiting and value for money in conjunction with Liberec/ Prague. time period is 6 to 10 days. Thanks a lot in advance

you should concentrate on the city of Prague for history, architecture, galleries etc.

the best suggestion is to look in the top right column for 'day trips' from Prague to see what things interest you. also look for "Things to See and Do" in Prague

as mentioned, there is easy/affordable connection b/w Prague and Liberec via Student Agency Bus.

It is helpful to realize that people from different countries travel in different ways. I know that many people from India enjoy seeing several cities within a few days.

From Prague to Cesky Krumlov travel by the Student Agency bus (3 hours). Spend several hours or one night in Cesky Krumlov depending on your preferences. Then take a shared shuttle to Vienna (3 to 4 hours). Take a train from Vienna to Budapest.

A night train from Budapest to Krakow takes 10 hours. Return to the Czech Republic by train again.

I already suggested to you Budapest and Vienna. You didn't seem to acknowledge that suggestion yet you asked about the area of Liberec-hence my previous reply.
