There are some cities that are so magical and enthralling that words aren’t enough to encapsulate their beauty. The Czech capital city of Prague is one of them. Prague is one of Europe’s most prolific architectural gems with picture-perfect views from every part of the city. A Prague holiday is on the wish-list for thousands of tourists across the globe. A city known for romance, Prague is also well-known for being a party city with plenty of historical sites and sounds to explore during your stay here. A Prague holiday is also perfectly fun for children. There are many things to do in Prague when you have children in tow. From family-friendly restaurants and hotels to child-friendly attractions, fun activities abound in Prague. If you are at a loss for what to do on a Prague holiday with children, here are a few options that will do the trick.
Child-Friendly Restaurants to Visit on Your Prague Holiday
Most restaurants could be classified as child-friendly, but if you want to thoroughly enjoy your Prague holiday with children, choosing the right child-friendly restaurants is key. Most restaurants in Prague offer separate smoking and non-smoking areas. You may not find menus designed specifically for children but most service professionals will happily recommend suitable meal options and even offer half-sized portions of adult meals.
Located at Wenceslas Square, Vytopna Railway Restaurant serves Czech and international cuisine dishes, and drinks at affordable rates. The primary reason why we recommend Vytopna as a preferred child-friendly restaurant on your Prague holiday is that the restaurant has a 400m miniature railway running through the place. The train wagons deliver drinks and food items right to the table. This ambience is sure to be a hit with the children! Corto Pizza & Pasta Restaurant is a family-run eatery which is also the oldest Italian restaurant in the city center area. Located in a historic 14th Century building, Corto is a great place for children, couples, as well as groups of friends and families. If you are looking for an all-inclusive evening culinary tour, sign up for the Traditional Czech Night with full Czech folk dance, songs, and music entertainment night. The tour lasts for a little over 3.5 hours, and includes a pick up from your hotel, 4-course meals for the family, as well as unlimited wine, beer, and soft drinks for all. A tour costs 1190czk for adults and 595czk for children.
Enjoy River Cruises on Your Prague Holiday
River cruises are always a popular activity option on a Prague holiday because most of the famous landmarks and attractions in Prague are located around the river. Enjoy buffet-style meals during lunch and dinner cruises as you sail under the Charles Bridge. Children will have a great time whether you opt for sitting on the deck to watch the waters as you sail, or sitting inside the opulent cruise boats. Other than relaxing cruises, you can also opt for city tours and jazz cruises to keep the little ones entertained.
Theater and Puppet Shows
The National Marionette is a puppet theater par excellence. Children of all ages will enjoy watching the magic that the master puppeteers create onstage. Similarly, the Black Light Theater is a big hit with children and teens. The show features a host of mime artists, puppeteers, animated films, ballet performances, illusions, and much more. The enthralling lights, sounds, and stellar dancing will keep the children occupied and entertained.
Petrin Observation Tower and Funicular Railway
The Petrin Observation Tower is located right at the top of Petrin Hill. Hop onto the funicular from the Funicular Station and enjoy the ride from Lesser Town to the top of the Petrin Hill. Along the way, you can stop at the park and wooded area on the side of the hill. Once you reach the summit, the Petrin Observation Tower awaits you, but it isn’t the only attraction that the hill offers. Head to the hall of mirrors or go on a stroll in the rose garden that boasts a number of different varieties of roses and other flowers that kids will love. The views from the Petrin Observation Tower are as exciting as the funicular excursion itself. This attraction operates all through the year.
