I am posting this from Prague, and i gotta say, it shits all over Paris in prettymuch every way you can think of (except fewer people speak english- but that just adds to the experience!).
Saw notre dame, it was full of tourists, the basilique Saint Denis was much more impressive and full of all of frances dead kings for the past 1000+ years. Notre Dame had all these artificial lights and it was still realy dark. I thought this was meant to be a gothic cathedral which takes advantage of natural light? Saint Denis had hardly any electric lights, and the stain glass windows made these amazing bursts of coloured light on the ground. Sacre Coeur is a waste of time and has faaaaaaar too many steps. You have to watch out for these guys who try to tie a string around your wrist then charge you 5 euro's for it because you cant take it off.
Prague is better anyway. The streets are prettier, everything is cheaper, and there is so much to see. We wandered the streets of paris for hours on end and it gets pretty boring pretty fast, when you do that in prague (at least in the old city) you are constantly awestruck.
