Traveling with children can be an exhausting experience if you don't plan ahead.Here are the list of attractions for kids in Prague may be useful for you.Prague offers many options,including museums,theaters,cinemas,and parks with playgrounds.If your brood gets tired of walking,take a tram ride.The kids will quickly forget about sore legs.Also,the Vltava River offers the possibility of exploring the city from yet another angle.Below are some places to take your family to make visiting Prague more enjoyable.
The Toy Museum(Muzeum hracek),situated within the complex of Prague Castle,at Jirská6,is a place to come with your family to see and feel the nostalgia of the past.This is the world's second-largest exposition of toys,where you can find everything from pieces dating back to ancient Greece up to a collection of the most popular toys of our time.It is open daily from 9:30am to 5:30pm.Admission is 60Kc adults,30Kc students(children 6-15),free for children under 6.
On Petrín Hill
Kids will enjoy the funicular ride to the top of Petrín Hill,capped by the Petrín Tower,a miniature replica of the Eiffel Tower.Once there,look for the Labyrinth(Bludiste),a mirror maze that you walk through.Like the tower replica,the Labyrinth was built for the 1891 Prague Exhibition,an expo that highlighted the beauty and accomplishments of Bohemia and Moravia.
Inside the Labyrinth is a gigantic painting/installation depicting the battle between Praguers and Swedes on the Charles Bridge in 1648,a commemoration of the fighting that ended the Thirty Years'War.In 1892,the building's other historic exhibits were replaced with mirrors,turning the Labyrinth into the fun house it is today.It's open April daily from 10am to 7pm;May to September daily from 10am to 10pm;October daily from 10am to 6pm;and November to March Saturday and Sunday from 10am to 5pm.Admission is 70Kc for adults and 50Kc for children above 10 years.
