    I took my son to the Czech Republic and Germany as a “roots” type trip before his senior year in high school. We visited Kutna Hora and loved that city. It’s one of the few places you can find people who speak English. Otherwise, outside of Prague, German was my best bet 🙂 I would also like to suggest Terezin. Some may consider it morbid, because it was a holding place for the death camps during World War II. It was the “show place” that the Nazis showed the Red Cross to prove the concentration camps weren’t really bad. It was a very solemn visit, but it definitely gave us memories to last a life time!

    We went to Kutna Hora last week as a day-trip fom Prague last week and loved it! It’s well worth going.

    You shouldn’t miss this area…the real heart of the country…Where the wine and Slivovice comes from, all the traditional songs and costumes, some great festivals of music and wine. World heritage areas, some lovely towns and friendly people http://www.slovacko.cz/

    If you’re going to Cesky Budejovice, it’s definitely worth making a side trip to Cesky Krumlov, about 30 minutes south by road. In fact, I would say skip Budejovice all together (unless you really want to see all the beer stuff) and go to Krumlov instead. It’s a much smaller, beautiful, medieval town on a bend in the Vltava river. It has a castle with a moat guarded by two brown bears, a main square that would make you believe you’ve travelled back in time, some great tea houses and cute cafes, and surprisingly for such a small town in Czech Republic, some wonderful vegetarian food. Oh, and stay at Krumlov House, possibly the nicest hostel I’ve stayed at anywhere. Small, comfortable, welcoming, quiet and not a bunk bed in sight!
