Just wndered if anyone had any information/adice or tips regarding visiting the Czech Republic with children.

We are going, along with Katz's family (so 4 adults, 3 children aged 6,5 and 3) for 10 days in August. We have 3 days in Prague, then 7 days about an hour a way in the country, in a villa with pool, etc. We will have a car for the last week.

So - what things would you recomeend for Prague and also further afield?

Thank you.

Looking forwards to visiting as we have never been to Czech at all before.

hello - princessofpower suggested I come here... (I live in Prague).

Whereabouts are you going to be when you're outside Prague? There are good castles pretty much everywhere, and also a lot of marked walking paths - fun looking out for the red/blue etc. marks on trees.

The centre of Prague has a lot of child-friendly restaurants and cafes (in fact they pretty much all are). Both the Rugantino pizzerias (one in Dusni, one in Klimentska, which also has a play corner) bring you colouring to do at the table.

There are quite a lot of playgrounds in the centre (Kampa park alongside the bank of the river is a good place to let off steam, & also has a small playground).

I'll have a think about particularly fun things to do with children in Prague (mine is only 15 months, so not really into that yet) but you can't really go wrong just walking about with frequent stops, since a lot of the buildings, steps etc. are likely to catch a child's imagination.

Think in terms of parts of the Old Town and Mala Strana that are off the main drag - there are a lot of them, and they're a lot nicer.

At soft play at moment so will look where abouts it is we are going when home. Think it is about an hour down a main road from prague going east. Will check! Also will be self catering i lot. Where would you suggest? I think tesco is popular but which ones are best would be good. Thanks for all info.

spent a week there a few years ago with two children, 8 and 6.was helped by the fact we had previous aupairs living there to visit but they really enjoyed the castle, trams and especially a black light theatre show (lots of them around the city )
