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

oh you'll probably like Segways - check their website and book a tour....

Then of course you should see the Prague castle, Charles Bridge, Old Town square.

Lennon wall is on Kampa island (off Charles bridge) - nothing really exciting

Torture museum - next to Charles Bridge ....I've never been but perhaps you would prefer to pop in to the bar at Novotneho Lavka instead :)

The museum of Communism/

Then perhaps you'd like to do some shooting - there is a place in Zizkov, if interested I will give you the name and address.

How many days are you staying and where?

Don't forget to see some of David Cerny's weird statues...just google for videos.:) - definitely quirky, but not for everybody...

pragueexperience.com/sports_activities/sport…

mthis lists lots of things to try,most of these you can organise yourself at a lot less cost.

I like the idea of the toboggan run,never been on it but I must try it some time.

Do you know where the toboggan is? I've searched google, but all I can find is people talking about it, rather than any actual information about it.

Bobsleigh on Prosek is quite fun. Question is if it operates in February, when there can be snow, so for sure, call there in advance http://www.bobovadraha.cz/index1.html

The other things, I don´t know. Actually I will never do them as a local (segway, torture museum..)

What about going to mountains for some skiing. It can be quite fun. There are skibuses going there in the morning and back in the evening. You can rent the skis, get easily drunk there by hot wine and have fun. There is no need to stay one week in the city.

I think they are 20 year old lads coming to Prague to celebrate 21st birthday - so I expect drinking is very much on the agenda.....right?

Good idea about skiing. Student Agency buses take just over an hour to Liberec; you could ski at Jested Mountain, then go to Babylon (swimming, lazy river, massage, etc.). Lots of good & inexpensive restaurants. B & B's

The website here gives links to all main attractions:

Would be suprised if they want to go to the trouble of taking buses out of Prague but who knows perhaps they would .

BTW are you allowed to ski when under the influence of drink ????
