Czech Republic: the perfect family vacation


If the perfect holiday means that the children are playing happily and exploring new environments with new friends while you are relaxing – look no further than the Czech Republic.

Prague offers a large number of indoor and outdoor activities for families and children, but it is worth leaving the capital behind to discover the beauty of different corners of the Czech Republic.



Starting from the country’s capital, DinoPark Prague is a fun and educational amusement park, filled with real models of dinosaurs. They move and roar, to make the encounter with the giants even more real. Another popular place for children is the Petřín Hill in Prague, with the lookout tower and the mirror castle! On the northern outskirts of the city is Prague Zoo – just getting to the zoo can be a part of the adventure. Take a boat trip along the river with Prague Steamboat Co.

Enjoy a stroll through beautiful Stromovka, or rent bikes and cycle through the park. Once here you will find a child-friendly zoo where you can pet the animals along with miniature cars and a big play area. Enjoy a bit of fright? Take a ghost walk through Prague's dark past and look for ghost stories and legends on the narrow cobbled streets in the Old Town where alchemists, monsters and ghosts once haunted.
