Slavia's arena is indeed very modern.But that doesn't equal good.U can find way better atmosphere even in 3rd tier league.Mainly coz it's too big.There simply isn't market to fill huge arena often and fans r kinda lost(like 2k in like 15k arena).Better visit Sparta's home game.Also,number of clubs is located near Prague and some them r famous for their atmosphere.For example U could easily visit Jagr's(who actually bought it and is president of) and Voracek's,Pavelec's,Plekanec's etc etc. home club Kladno.That's about 20miles roadtrip.Ugly city and arena but i'd rather visited game there anyday.After all to see how MOST of Czech arenas looks like could be more interesting itself.
Also if you're going to Wienna and Budapest,U can easily visit Plzen(its arena's one of top in Czechia) while traveling from Prague to Vienna or Brno on journey from Prague to Budapest.And these two clubs r on their peak of hockey fever last years.Definitely worth considering.Coz last years none of Prague's teams is even close to them in terms of atmosphere(especially Slavia).
Depends on your preferences and options of course.This is just what i'd suggested to anyone wanting to visit Czech hockey.If anything of it can fit into your honeymoon schedule and your tastes...that's up to you.
