Best Fun for Kids and Teenagers in Prague
A City Trip to Prague and taking the kids may not be your first thought. Prague is extremely kid-friendly from children’s corners with lots of toys in restaurants and pubs to public playgrounds with climbing frames and sandpits for the very young. Add to this the many toyshops filled with LEGO and cuddly toys and you will understand why children like Prague as much as their parents.
A city trip to Prague has lots to offer for very young children and also for teenagers.
1. Kastanek Playground in Stromovka Park has lots of swings and climbing frames. Although it cannot move, the large size toy train is the special attraction. All children love it as they can climb on to it, climb over it or sit on it.

2. The playground in the Franciscan Garden with lots of sand for building sand castles. This is the perfect place to meet Czech mothers with their children.

3. In Mama Coffee mothers with toddlers meet up and sip fair trade coffee. Don’t let the name Mama Coffee deter you, everyone is welcome.
Kids 4 to 10 years old
1. Mirror Maze at Petrin Hill is fun, especially when the kids (and their fathers and mothers) bump again and again against the mirror walls. When they have found their way through the labyrinth, the distorting mirrors are another attraction.

2. DinoPark is full of life size dinosaurs roaring frightfully while shaking their head and rolling their eyes. The dinosaurs are a bit scary for very young children. Once they realize that these big monsters can’t move, they, too, will love it.

3. Crocodiles Zoo is home to some twenty crocodiles who live in glass cases which are on eye level. Every visitor can stand eye in eye with these dangerous alligators and crocodiles as only one glass partition separates them from the outside world.
Fun for Teenagers
1. Railway Kingdom with model trains running to a regular schedule against a landscaped background. Cars and lorries give each other way at crossings and stop at traffic lights. Impressive is the day and night shift. When daylight fades the trains, cars and houses put on their lights.
2. iPilot where you can fly a Boeing 737 in a to-scale cockpit. Experience airborne views and real flight paths while seated in a simulator and not moving one single inch.

3. John Lennon Wall or Tesnov Wall, bring your own paint spray and add your piece of art to these two legal graffiti walls.

Best Ice Cream for Kids and Teenagres
Eating out with children is easy because Prague has many family-friendly restaurants. Ovocny Svetozor, right in the centre and close to Wenceslas Square is the one of the best place for huge ice creams and strong fragrant coffee for mothers and beer for fathers.
