Prague: Kid-Friendly Activities

Sunday, October 14th, 2012

Prague, the capital of the Czech Republic is like a fairytale land with cobblestone streets and magnificent buildings to enchant the whole family. The kids love towers to climb and there are a number that are good to look at, climb and to look down from.

Prague Castle – The castle is a UNESCO World Heritage site, the Czech Republic’s leading national monument, and the world’s biggest castle. Your kids will be enchanted by the castle and love the Toy Museum and the changing of the guard.

Old Town Clock -In the Old Town Square, you get super views from the Town Hall Tower. Kids of all ages love to watch the spinning 12 apostles coming out of the Astronomical Clock each hour and older kids may be thrilled by the legend of the clockmaker.

River Cruise in Prague -You can see many of the famous sights from the river, so a cruise is a great way of seeing the city. The kids will enjoy the buffet style meal and have plenty of room to move about.

Petrin Hill Park -Kids love climbing the Observation Tower at the top, which is a smaller equivalent to the Paris Eiffel Tower. The views are splendid. The tower is surrounded by landscaped gardens and other attractions including rose gardens, hall of mirrors and the Observatory.

Kid-friendly activities other than sightseeing – If your kids tire of sightseeing or the weather isn’t being kind, there are various activities to enjoy:

Swimming- In the city center, you’ll find the Axa heated swimming pool. Just a 10 minute ride from the center on a tram will get you to the Podoli Swimming Pool Complex. It’s the city’s largest and includes a 50m Olympic-sized pool, indoor and outdoor pools and paddling pool for younger kids.

Prague Zoo – This is the Czech Republic’s most visited zoo. With 5000 animals, you can spend the day here admiring the animals and beautiful surroundings.

The Hrad Zabavy Fun Castle is a children’s entertainment center in the Old Town. The Spejbl and Hurvinek Theatre or the National Marionette Theatre provide entertainment for all the family.

In the Old Town Square there is the unusual GUD art gallery for children from 2 to 13. The kids co-create the exhibits! There are various indoor miniature golf courses for all the family to enjoy, including Adventure Minigolf Kunratice.
