I was very lucky and at the same time unlucky when I managed to find a new playground in Prague 1 right next to the river and 50 m away from our favourite Pizza place with kids play area Rugantino II. Since I am short sighted, I got all excited and strolled towards the playground with my double pram promising the boys a great afternoon.
If I can manage with a 52 kg double pram, swapping between trams and metro, then it’s possible that you can do it too. In general, the public transport in Prague is well organized and efficient. I have heard it’s the best organized public transport system in the whole world. And to be honest, I believe them…
The staff at Squashpark are very friendly and they can take reservations in English. If you’re interested they have many tournaments going on for non-professionals. Squash helped me get back into shape after 2 years of pregnancy. You can contact me if you are Interested in playing and we can go together. Every Tuesday and Wednesday at 10:00 they provide babysitting for Trampoline Jumping Classes and Aerobics and you can use it to play squash as well, having your kid looked after. You or kids can visit here gym, spinning as well as climb on artificial climbing rocks.
This is a perfect playground when you want to combine shopping and still take your baby out. It finds its self right next to big Shopping mall: Novy Smichov on Andel - big transportation knot. It took me half a year to discover it, although I had heard about it many times from other Prague 5 residents. Its very well hidden and on the first look you wouldn’t even think that there might be a beautiful hidden playground.
The area of most interest to families is the children’s swimming pool and playground. When you enter Zlute Lazne walk down the stairs and make a left turn along the road. Towards the end of this road there is the ticket office where you pay to enter.
Ok, so we’ve all been there, those baffling first few months when we don’t quite know how to handle our first newborn. My sister is currently experiencing this phase with her brand new baby boy and a kindly friend sent her the following visual advice. If you’re up for a bit of a laugh viewing some silly humour then click through and at the same time be aware that some people out there may find this very useful advice indeed.
Right when I drove out form the garage the little devil on my shoulder was telling me to head to my beloved swimming place: Petynka swimming centre and not to risk trying a new swimming area. The little Angel on my other shoulder kindly reminded me of my role in finding new places for families visiting kidsinprague.com, so I eventually turned the wheel towards Radlice’s indoor and outdoor swimming complex in Prague 5.
It has been quite some time since we have been members of the Fitness and Wellness club of the Hotel Intercontinental, in Prague 1. But since then I’ve recommended this place to at least 10 families who now go there regularly to swim with their babies.
I’ve passed these massage places so often and never given them a second look, that was until my sister insisted that we step inside and try it out - her treat! Thai massage is known for it’s firm but effective manipulation of the muscles and skeletal structure. The practice is similar to other eastern type massage where the masseuse works to open up channels of energy and help make the body fluid again. More simply with western logic, massage helps loosen up muscles, stimulates blood flow, unblocks any tension, helps realign our posture and improves sleep.
I’ve heard good things about this playground so finally ventured out here on a hot summers day. This playground is a real find, where else can you’re kids swim for free and so close to the centre? Ok, well paddle is a more accurate description. Anyway, for any 2 year old or even 6 year old it is a delightful attraction on a hot, sunny day. The pool is accessed by two or three slip-proof stairs and the water is about 20 or 30cm deep, enough depth for kids to play, splash and sit in.
