for children


Prague loves children. Our museums, galleries, and concert halls have entertainment programs created especially for them. Outdoors, they can frolic in our parks, playgrounds, and sports grounds. Many restaurants have children’s play areas and playrooms. Delight them with a beautiful gift in the form of traditional Czech toys or puppets. We have special illustrated maps of Prague created just for them, which you can find on our e-shop or in the Old Town Hall gift shop. And don’t forget - children under 14 ride for free on Prague public transport!

fun on a rainy day

Prague is made for walking, but there are days when you want to stay warm and dry. Prague has a number of museums, galleries, and other venues whose exhibits and programmes cater to young visitors. Or how about a ride on a vintage tram, tiny electric train, or boat? There are options even for those kids who roll their eyes at the idea of a museum visit.

gardens, parks, and playgrounds

Prague is dotted with parks, gadens, and other green spaces, each with its own appeal. Some have playgrounds with monkey bars and slides. The historical gardens in the centre beckon weary travelers to relax and refresh, or enjoy a picnic. The Petřín, Kinsky Garden, Letná and Riegrovy sady parks offer lovely views of the city. On a hot summer’s day, head to Stromovka with its ponds and streams. (If you choose to feed our local water fowl, please be sure to use rolled oats or lettuce; baked goods are not something a duck or swan should eat. ) Looking for a bit of adrenaline fun? Then head over to “Active Fun for Families” below.

eating out

Prague has countless restaurants, and with the exception of a few high-end establishments, all will happily serve families with (reasonably well-behaved) children. All Prague restaurants are non-smoking. Our selection highlights those with an added value for families — say, a great kids’ menu, play area, or another attraction. We have also included a few places for those with a sweet tooth; Prague has some great confectioneries, café/bakeries, and ice cream parlours where you can reward your kids for being such good troopers on your vacation. 

active fun for families

Do your children have an excess of energy or a love of sports? Then head out to the water park, climbing wall, go-kart arena, bobsleigh track… We guarantee that by the end of the day, they’ll be tired and happy  

gifts and toys

Do your darlings deserve a new toy from Prague? Sure they do! And if not right this minute, then surely later. 

practical tips for families travelling to prague


Public transportation is the easiest way of getting around Prague. The network is dense and connections are frequent. The main bus and tram routes are largely (wheelchair and) stroller-accessible — if your bus or tram have steps, simply wait for the next one. The majority of Prague’s metro stops have stroller-friendly access points.

Children until 14 ride Prague’s public transit system free of charge, but for children over 10 you need to have a photo ID to prove their age if requested to do so by an inspector. More details are available on the Prague Public Transport Company web site. Please note: Trams always have the right of way — even on pedestrian crossings.

There are public restrooms in all the metro station vestibules, but changing tables are still uncommon. We suggest using those in shopping centres (where diapers are also sold) and baby-friendly cafés and other businesses. With the exception of certain national holidays, the large shopping centres (malls) are open daily until 8 or 9 p.m.

Museums and historical sights often offer reduced admission for children or family tickets; very young children are admitted free. All children and young people under 26 years of age enjoy free entry to all the National Gallery permanent collections. 

Certain medical facilities provide English-language emergency care for children and adults; some other languages like German and Russian are also spoken. Find their list under the important contacts section of this web site, or request them from your hotel.
