Things to see and do with kids in Prague

Prague Kids Attractions

Prague has many attractions to offer children on holiday with their families. The city feels like a medieval fantasy, with all its fortresses, cathedrals and castles, and children are generally captivated by the whole atmosphere of the place which just begs for fantasies about princesses and knights.

For starters, there is an entire castle district to explore, a fairy-tale world for kids to enjoy. Petrin Hill is home to a fantastic mirror maze, and children can also go pony riding in the area; the park areas for outdoor activities are a delight for kids and parents alike. The local Toy Museum, the second largest collection of its kind in the world, will keep children entertained for hours. The Czech Republic also has a rich puppet tradition and shows at the Black Light Theatre and the National Marionette Theatre will be a special treat for little ones. For young animal lovers Prague has a Sea World and a zoo for kids to explore. A visit to see the chiming of Prague's medieval Astronomical Clock is also a must.

Taking a cruise to see the attractions along the banks of the river is a popular activity for the whole family. Children seem to love this mode of sightseeing, and the atmosphere on the spacious ferry boats is relaxed and informal. All in all, Prague is a great destination if you are travelling with kids.
