Taking the kids to Prague is an excellent idea. They will love this city with its hundred spires, an ancient bridge festooned with sculptures and better still, lots of toy shops filled with cuddly toys and in particular little Mole, Krtek in Czech. Every neighborhood in Prague has several playgrounds with swings, climbing frames and a sandpit for toddlers. Even though it cannot move, the toy train at Kastanek Playground is special because children can sit on it, climb in, on and over it. The bonus is the pleasant cafe next to this playground with special menus for children. Eating out with kids is easy because Prague has many kid-friendly restaurants. Ovocny Svetozor, right in the center of Nove Mesto, is the best place for huge ice creams and strong fragrant coffee for mothers and beer for fathers. Very young children will love the mirror maze and bump into mirrors time and again. Harfa Dino Park is full of life size dinos, making loud noises and moving their head and eyes. It is a bit scary for very young children but once they realize that these big dinos can't move, they, too, will love it. Finally, bring your own paint spray and add your piece of art to the public John Lennon Wall.
