Hi, I am looking for a way to get from Prague to Bruges, hopefully with the price being low, and ideally on a night bus/train.
I looked it up and I believe I will have to make a switch in Brussels, but if anyone else has anymore information that would be greatly appreciated.
Also I am looking for any trips, tricks, or advice for the remainder of my trip in regards to transport and the usefulness of of EuroPass in it.
Thanks in advance

A cheap flight is probably a better deal (saving considerable time and possibly some money) on this route than either bus or train. Overnight train would be my second choice — only in the unlikely event that plane is significantly more expensive. Day train or bus would be my last choice.

Train is pretty complicated. Overnight train is City Night Line to Koln, then High speed Thalys to Brussels then Intercity to Brugge. Day option is bus to Nuremberg then either Intercity Express to Frankfurt, another Intercity Express to Brussels and intercity to Brugge or Intercity to Koln, Thalys to Brussels and Intercity to Brugge. All options are in the 12 hour range
