Europe Trip Itineraries

Prague for Kids

Destination(s): Prague

Family travel is the best, but keeping a group with differing age ranges and interests engaged in the trip can be tough. Prague, for all its history and romance is a wonderful place to visit - until you pause to think that not many kids are into history or romance. The city does have some unusual treats to offer, and they are so cool even mom and dad will be grinning. The last two recommendations are kid-friendly places to eat. read more about Prague for Kids

Petřín Hill Observation Tower

Petřín Hill Observation Tower

The lookout tower (Petřnsk rozhledna) on Petřn Hill looks much like a miniature Eiffel Tower. Built in 1891 as a celebration of the Czech lands, it initially did the trick. However, since that time it has become a topic of debate, with many people harboring serious dislike for what seems like an inferior version of Paris' main attraction. Although the exterior is the source of some resentment, the tower's purpose makes it a major tourist attraction. Set atop Petřn Hill, it takes a mere 299 steps to reach the top, where a breathtaking view awaits. It is said that on a clear day, you can see 150 km in any direction. Surrounded by beautiful gardens and offering the most comprehensive bird's eye view of the city, Petřn Observation Tower has earned its spot as one of Prague's top-ranking tourist sites. read more about Petřn Hill Observation Tower

Founded in 1931, the Prague Zoo is now one of the best in Europe, housing 5000 animals of 650 species. Among the pavilions, the Indonesian Jungle transports you into a fresh tangle of greenery and the Monkey Island allows visitors to get up close and personal with primates. Although there were problems in 2002, when a major flood killed many of the animals and destroyed zoo enclosures, the zoo has since recovered and is, again, a thriving zoological garden. But animals aren't all this zoo has to offer, it lies in a lush river valley and boasts spectacular views from atop a rocky cliff. Few city zoos offer such impressive surroundings. read more about Prague Zoo

Poised atop a hill, Vysehrad was the seat of Czech power for many years after its establishment in the mid-10th century. After losing its position to the Prague Castle, Vysehrad was left to fall into ruin. Now, there is still much to see in the area. The grounds form a massive and beautiful landscape, which contain the Gothic Church of Sts. Peter and Paul, the exceptionally old St. Martin Rotunda, the culturally-significant Vysehrad Cemetery, the Tabor Gate, and the ruins of a former fortification of the castle. As if that wasn't enough, an absolutely stunning view of Prague awaits here. Crumbled stone walls, gorgeous scenery, and outdoor sculpture make Vysehrad and enchanting place to visit. read more about Vysehrad Castle

Bohemia Bagel

Bohemia Bagel

Breakfast places are hard to come by in Prague; which makes Bohemia Bagel's three locations such a joy. Fresh bagels and huge breakfast platters satisfy the morning munchies, while an excellent range of grilled and fresh sandwiches offer the perfect mid-day break. Their soups are excellent, and there's a great variety for vegetarians.

Two other locations: In Prague 7, at Dukelskych hrdinu 48, 220 806 541 and in Prague 1, Mala Strana at Lazenska 19, 257 218 192.
