Prague is not a particularly child-friendly destination. Certainly, kids will get a kick out of riding around on the trams and metros and younger children may show an interest in the fairy-tale castles and ancient history, but this isn't Disneyland, and after a few hours of hitting the cobblestones a little boredom is likely to set in.

Fortunately, Prague is not just dusty museums and history lessons on Gothic architecture. Some ideas for kids include the Prague Zoo, the National Technical Museum (stuffed with old trains and cars), an afternoon swimming at the Podolí public pool and even just feeding the swans on the banks of the Vltava.
