I've read all of the other questions on traveling to Prague and to Budapest (as well as all of the New York Time's "36 Hours In" pieces on the two cities), but was hoping to get some specific guidance based on interests and timeframe. We are going to be in Prague on Friday (3/15) and then taking the train to Budapest the following Thursday (3/21). We head back to the US on 3/25. In Prague we are staying near that "I. P. Pavlova" metro station, and in Budapest we are staying near "Arany Jànos utca" metro.
What are your favorite places to eat delicious things and to get drinks? I know that Prague has an awesome number of microbreweries -- which are the best? I've also read that Budapest has "ruin bars" but am still a bit hazy on what exactly that is and how to go about finding one. Please help!
Is there anything that is March 2013-specific that we absolutely need to do/see? Does either city have any vintage photobooths (that give a strip of 4 photos)?
I am less interested in clubs, museums, churches, more interested in wandering around and doing things. I really like food. I really like things that can only be done in one of those cities and nowhere else in the world. I like biking in the US, but it seems like it will be really cold when we are in Prague & Budapest so am not sure if I want to do that there!
