Karlovy Lazne
The self-proclaimed 'largest club in Middle Europe' provides five floors of like-minded early 20 somethings. Occasional name DJs make appearances - otherwise it's a good, old-fashioned night on the tiles.
Radost FX Cafe
Radost's front of house vegetarian café is worth a trip in its own right, or just pop in halfway through a night in the club downstairs to recharge with some pulses and a beer. The largely a predominantly Czech clientele.

Enjoy good French food in albeit slightly surreal surroundings. Out of the way but worth the visit.

Shooting & Hunting
Something different for a weekend away: try a day stalking deer and wild boar, or have them driven at you. There is always some element of risk involved, so it's not really recommended for those who have never handled a rifle or shotgun.
