Chef Concierge Petr Zezula at Four Seasons Hotel Prague recommends the Top 10 for families and kids during the city’s warmer seasons:

  1. Prague Castle

This complex of ornate buildings, courtyards and monuments features everything from the Old Royal Palace to St. Vitus’ Cathedral, a stunning example of Gothic architecture. Younger children will love exploring the Royal Gardens, while teens will be fascinated by the White Tower’s history of torture and intrigue.

  1. Petřín Hill and Petřín Tower

It is impossible to miss The Petřín Tower (a smaller replica of the Eiffel Tower), perched as it is on top of Petřín Hill, the large hill that towers above the Mala Strana District (Lesser Town). There are several interesting sights on Petřín Hill. Mirror Maze, featuring popular distorting mirrors, is one of the highlights. The most entertaining way to reach Petřín Hill is to take the funicular, a cable car that climbs the hill

  1. The National Technical Museum

Older children will enjoy the collections of historic transportation methods, including antique bicycles, cars, trains, and planes. Intercamera (history of photographic and film technology), metallurgy, acoustics and noise ecology, mining (ore and coal mines), and evolution of telecommunications technology are also part of the permanent exhibition.

  1. Museum of Toys

A nice little place with lots of antique trains and dolls! There are not many things for the kids to touch, but there are plenty of mysterious mechanical objects such as music boxes and steam-powered toys for children to speculate about.

  1. Prague Zoo

Is said to be one of the best in Europe and could easily keep a family busy for one entire day. The visitors should take a look at the “Don’t miss” section and find a timetable of the most important events that take place in the Zoo during the day. One of the most popular pavilions in the Indonesian Jungle and the Monkey Island, where the guests can practically play with the cute lemurs. Another place loved by kids is the Children’s Area and the Children’s Zoo, a special built farm where kids are allowed to enter some enclosures and play with different domesticated animals (rabbits, sheep, pigs, ponies, hens, ducks, and geese).

  1. Marionettes

Puppetry is a large part of Czech culture, and wonderful marionette shops can be found in Prague, some featuring Spejbl and Hurvínek (the Czech equivalents of Punch and Judy). The Concierge at Four Seasons can arrange a fun workshop for the whole family where both parents and kids can learn to make their own marionette.

  1. Boat Ride on the Vltava River

Just a few steps from the Hotel, under the vaults of Charles Bridge, is a historical 19th century canal boat Vodouch, decorated with original wooden interiors and charming brass details. Skilled shipmasters will take guests around the city centre to enjoy the famous landmarks of Prague.

  1. Old Town Square

This lively square is considered the heart of Prague, full of the excitement of street-sellers, horse-and-buggy rides, and bustling cafés. The square is surrounded by a pastel mix of Baroque buildings, but the 15th-century Astronomical Clock is the real draw for kids. Guests should visit on the hour (9:00 am to 9:00 pm) to see the automated procession of the 12 apostles. St. Nicholas Church also sits on the Square, and even small children will be amazed by its soaring dome, colourful frescos, crystal candelabra and gold-leaf decorations.

  1. Carts Racing

For those looking for more exciting and sporty activity, ca art racing arena is located in suburbs of Prague.

  1. Segway Tour

Segway tours around Prague can be arranged through the Concierge Desk at Four Seasons,  either as part of the group tour or as a private experience. Real family fun!
