Vienna to Prague part can be done cheaply in couple ways:
1) buy in advance on OEBB website Spar ticket (from 29 euro), but those not always available Spar tickets have limited availability
2) purchase EURegio ticket to Vienna-Znojmo (12 euro) or Vienna-Ceske Budejovice (22 euro), those tickets can be bought any time. Afterward just get Czech domestic ticket till Prague -  323 and 211 CZK respectively per person, but if there are two passengers you are eligible to receive group discount - 25%
3) Get Einfach-Raus-Ticket (28 euro for both of you) for you travels within the Austria until last Austrian station before Czech border - Gmund NO (take a look at Austrian rail network map on our "Austria" page), afterward  once again domestic Czech ticket till Prague.
1) get CD eTicket Praha-Krakow - 19 euro (
2) get domestic ticket from Prague to Bohumin (445 CZK per person - 25% discount for the group) and buy Bohumin-Krakow-Bohumin return ticket (19.2 euro) - you will need return part of it on you way from Krakow to Vienna.
3) or simply purchase regular one way Praha-Krakow - it is not the expensive - 36.8 euro
1) there are Spar tickets from Krakow to Vienna for as low as 29 euro, but you need to purchase them in advance (3 days) and only in Poland (not online)  - guess it's not an option for you. But you can try asking for Spar ticket Krakow-Vienna in Vienna - OEBB might sell it.
2) use return part of your Krakow-Bohumin ticket + domestic Czech ticket Bohumin-Breclav (239 CZK)+ discounted Brno-Vienna 9 euro ticket (
3) regular fare Krakow-Vienna ticket - app. 60 euro (seems to much)

You might as well try switching the sequence of your travels - go to Krakow first (here you can purchase Spar ticket Vienna-Krakow for 29 euro), Krakow-Prague is not that expensive after all + Praha-Vienna only for 19 euro (
