This playground is so well hidden, that as I was standing right in front, turning in circles I coudn’t see it. It is right in the heart of Prague 1, behind the famous department store Kotva. The best think about it is, that it is so close to cafes, restaurants and shops, that you can plan half of your day around it.
This is a brand new park and playground in Prague 3 that was opened today so Lucie and I rushed down to check it out. We’ve been so looking forward to this park opening, especially since Riegrovy Sady playground closed last month for complete reconstruction (the work will be completed sometime in November). Wow, I have to say that I was most impressed, the whole hillside that was once a wasteland on the edge of Zizkov has been landscaped into a stunning park with lovely views of the city.
I have taken the boys several times to gymnastics classes for kids at Family Fitness Sipkova. The whole class takes usually about 45 min and starts with kids and parents sitting in a circle where we sing a welcome song, then we sing and clap through a few more songs. After this the kids play with big rubber balloons and with the help of parents they hop, bounce and roll around and eventually join in a ball race across the room.
You must see the beautiful castle Hluboka nad Vltavou in South Bohemia, 150 km from Prague. Firstly, you can admire this historical jewel. Afterwards, take a walk around the magical lake to the nearby ZOO. You are guaranteed a great time. The closest large town is Ceske Budejovice just 10 km away, the hometown of our famous Budweiser beer.
Right in the centre of Prague 1, on Namesti Rebuliky, next to the Kotva department store you will find the Ambiente Pizza Nuova Restaurant. This is one of a few non-smoking restaurants in Prague with a decent sized kids play area that includes a small slide, tables for colouring in, a TV and a good array of toys to please kids from the ages of 1-5 years. A baby-sitter comes in on the weekends, to watch over the young ones, plays with them and thus allows the parents to enjoy a short break.
Blatouch was a favourite of ours when for years it was located in the Jewish Quarter of Prague. One could be guaranteed good service, nice food and a laid back atmosphere. Little has changed with the cafe moving to Vinohrady, in fact things have vastly improved especially if one now has kids.
Out of all the cleaning agencies in Prague, this one seems reasonably priced and easy to use, starting at 575 CZK for a 3 to 4 hour cleaning session. Following is a more detailed list of what is included. The price for a more thorough full day “spring clean” session is 2800 CZK.
Surprising to many, right underneath the Nusle Bridge and partly contained by the old city walls, is a beautifully landscaped park. It offers two brand new playgrounds and free sports courts where you can kick around a football or shoot hoops with the kids.
A complete list of pharmacies open around the clock (24 hours per day) comes in handy when you’re running around Prague looking for anti fever or pain reliving drugs for your children. Unfortunately, the law does not allow any other places such as petrol stations, to sell drugs of any kind. So your only option for Aspirin is the pharmacy.
Following is a list of all the Pharmacies in Prague that are open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
