School holidays in Prague
Online sources and catalogs of travel agencies are full of various offers for holidays in Prague and countless tours there – just choose! Each tour, as a rule, includes a number of activities and excursions “with a children’s bias.” For example, with a visit to the Lego Museum. But, before moving on to entertainment, the child should probably be introduced in an unobtrusive way to the city itself, its history and traditions.
Prague, the capital of the Czech Republic, is one of the most striking and interesting cities in Europe, which arose about a thousand years ago at the crossing of the Vltava River. The source of modern Prague and its symbol are the areas of Hradcany, Mala Strana and Old Town. Here it makes sense to start excursions for the overall development of your child.
In the center of the Old Town (Old Place) he will see the Old Town Square. People always crowd on it in anticipation of the opening of the windows of the medieval clock, in which the figures of the 12 apostles appear, and after that the skeleton (Death) will appear. The share of mysticism is especially fond of modern children. Death calls for a man with a wallet and a man with a guitar and a mirror. They refuse to go, but Death still drags them along on a rope. A rooster cries, and the clock strikes melodiously. Such a performance will immediately fascinate your child.
It is necessary to visit the Prague Kremlin with its ghosts. If your child continues to be interested in mysticism, you should book an excursion to medieval castles. In order not to bother the child with a large number of historical facts, you can take a break in education by visiting the world’s second largest toy museum or the museum of the Lego company.
The Toy Museum is open from 9.30 a.m. to 5.30 p.m. daily, including Saturday and Sunday. This amazing museum was created by film director Ivan Steigr, who collected toys for work in the cinema. Over time, there were so many of them that the director had no choice but to create a museum for those who like to be in childhood.
The museum has a unique collection of toys from around the world, pleasing to the eye not only of children, but also of adults.
The Museum of Miniatures is located near the Museum of Toys, so you do not have to go far. The Museum of Miniatures is considered the only one in the Czech Republic offering unique items in miniature. The establishment is private, founded by a passionate lover of fine little things.
The museum has 40 exhibits presented under a magnifying glass or a microscope, they are so small. The child will be delighted with the tiny grasshopper playing the violin or the well-known savvy flea. The museum presents a mini-book “Chameleon” A.P. Chekhov, consisting of 30 pages, which fell into the Guinness Book of Records in 1997. Opening hours of the museum: beginning at 9.00, completion – 17.00.
The museum of the Lego company invites guests to get acquainted with more than twenty expositions on various topics. The museum runs from 10.00 to 22.00, so that you and your child will have time to examine everything in a hurry. A curious exhibit is the exposition “City Model”, made of a million lego details. A pleasant bonus of the museum is that you can participate in the process of collecting lego designs yourself in a special game room, which will delight your child, do not hesitate!
The next course is the famous Prague Zoo. For children – it’s just a paradise. A large number of different animals, a designed mini-farm where pets are allowed to feed with special feed from the machine.

Hours of the zoo vary depending on the time of year.

Across the water park there are small and large aquariums with fish and even sharks! In “Aqua Palace” you have the opportunity to go diving with the whole family or just go scuba diving, children love it so much. While the child is having fun on the slides or splashing in the pool, you can find time for yourself and visit the excellent sauna, bathhouse or spa treatments.
