Head to the zoo for gorillas and much more
The Prague Zoo is rightly one of the most visited places for family trips. This large “playground” offers plenty of attractions for which a single day will definitely not be enough. This year’s season kicked off magnificently with a number of new exhibitions as well as new animal additions. Your children will fall in love with the two baby elephants who were born this spring, let off steam at the Bororo Reservation playground, or try their hand at making an original souvenir – paper from elephant droppings. Don’t forget to check the daily program to ensure you don’t miss the local experience programs, such as the popular feeding of sea lions, penguins, and giraffes.
A few steps from the zoo, the botanical gardens offer beautiful outdoor exhibits. You can, for example, stroll through the St. Klára vineyards, make your visit even more pleasant by tasting local wines, recharge your batteries among the azaleas in the Japanese garden, or enjoy the scent of lavender in the Mediterranean exhibition. The real exoticism awaits you in the unique Fata Morgana greenhouse, where you will gradually progress through several climate zones.
A three-part French garden surrounds a romantic Baroque chateau in the style of a Roman suburban villa, the interior of which features rich fresco decoration. Finish off your journey around the world in one of the Chinese salons inside the chateau. The chateau is also a popular place for foreign filmmakers – it popped up, for example, in the film version of Les Miserables.
