Mirakulum Park

We know about a place where miracles happen… We swear it, and also have undeniable proof! It is a place where so many amazing children’s attractions lie next to each other that it must have been created by real magic. Strange magic happened in Milovice, and it is called Mirakulum Park. Here, on an area of ten hectares, a water world, a rope centre, a forest town high in the treetops, a fairy tale village, a majestic wooden castle, secret underground passages, an intricate maze, a small zoo, giant swings, trampolines and much more are all adjacent to each other. And what are the Mirakulum miracles all about? About transformation! Your children will become adventurers and explorers, pirates, knights, fairies, princes and princesses, engineers, acrobats, artists, yet most of all, children who have fulfilled their dream – a dream of a trip to a place where everything is made just for them, for games, fun and amazing exploration.

Loučeň Castle

A long, long time ago, the Greek builder and inventor Daedalus designed the labyrinth, an intricately tangled and confusing path that twists and turns in such a way that getting to your destination and out again is a real problem. But it had to be difficult and demanding, for that was Daedalus’ task. Or, more accurately, an order given to him by the mighty King Minos. A terrible and merciless Minotaur, a creature with a human body and a bull’s head, was supposed to be imprisoned in the labyrinth. Do you dare to conquer several labyrinths? There is no need to travel through time or drive far, go to Loučeň Castle, where there are even twelve labyrinths and mazes in the vast park! Stone, light, sandstone, but also special features such as the letter labyrinth or the labyrinth of King Charles IV.

And the fact that children’s hobbies are not disregarded here is proven by the tours of the beautiful interiors. A noble princess or a butler, who knows every corner and secret passageway, will tell you about life in and around the château… And you can even look into one of them with him. Do you still think you would like to experience something more special after all? No problem! You can literally sweeten your tour at the Loučeň Castle. This will be part of a special gourmet chocolate excursion, during which this popular delicacy will not only be talked about, but also tasted. Can you imagine a more delicious afternoon?

Aquapalace Praha

When it’s so unbearably hot or so cold that the ponds and rivers are covered with ice, or when you’re overwhelmed with boredom or just long for relaxation, games and fun – What? Adults don’t feel like having a good time from time to time?! – go to Aquapalace near Prague, the largest water park in Central Europe. They don’t know words like annoyance and boredom there at all.

On the contrary, you will have a lot of fun, taste a bit of adrenaline and enjoy sweet relaxation – when your naughty kids will have fun on one of the twenty-one slides or ride down the longest water slide in the Czech Republic. If you’re feeling up to it, join them as they brave the wild river or sway in the waves. Parents who are teetering from fatigue will appreciate the opportunity to indulge in a well-deserved rest in the saunas or a massage in the SPA and wellness centre. The Aquapalace has so many attractions that you will have to come back here… Often and, we believe, you’ll love it.

Go on a journey to Siberia! Don’t worry, we’re not sending you beyond the Arctic Circle, we promise you won’t cross the borders of our region on this trip either. You will go to the south of Prague, to the Monínec area, because we are original in Central Bohemia and the Siberian landscape does not extend in the north. From the name Česká Sibiř, it is clear that there is plenty of snow here and winters are spent racing on perfectly groomed slopes. But you won’t be bored in other seasons either. Part of the complex is the Activity Park, where you can test your fitness on the rope course, enjoy a lot of fun on the ball course, and the laughter will certainly not leave you even when frolicking on the trampolines. If it gets really hot during your visit, you can refresh yourself on the water slide.

Botanicus Gardens and Craft Centre

Fairy tales and folk stories cannot do without wise godmothers. And no wonder, for without the mysterious old women who know every herb and its power, who can cure all ills and change the fate of entire kingdoms, our stories would often be without happy endings! What do you think, in these hectic times, could we not also use a bit of their wisdom, love for nature and respect for the honesty of traditional crafts?

Get to know the knowledge of the magical godmothers and our ancestors, take your children to the Botanicus area, to the local herb and vegetable gardens, orchards and Crafts Centre. There you will learn how baskets were woven and knitted or what the village blacksmiths needed to know. We’ll bet all the coins from the local mint that not only the children but also you, the adults, will be amazed in the Botanicus Centre. And you can already start planning together what the puppet you will make in the centre will look like, or how you and your children will decorate your own sweet gingerbread cookies.

It will be a fascinating walk, because Ralsko is not only beautiful, but also has an extraordinary story attached to it. Since 1949, a heavily guarded military district was located here. It is not possible to utter such a sentence often, but in this case, thanks to the armies that used the space, nature has remained preserved, varied and wild to this day.

Together, the children will be guided through the château chambers and visit the Magic Cellar, where Elsa will introduce them to the other members of her fairy tale party – fairies, a waterman, a devil, her friend Princess Rose and the inventive witch of Mníšek, who has replaced her outdated broom with a vacuum cleaner – apparently it is much more comfortable to travel on.

Few animals have earned so many unfair names from humans as donkeys. I’m sure you’ve also heard that a donkey is stupid and stubborn and slow. So forget all this nonsense quickly!

The guides will teach you so many interesting facts about the donkey members of the expedition that you will get dizzy. And who’s going to carry all your essentials in their bags, from the snacks to camera? Maybe it will be Bobby, the oldest donkey on the farm, or maybe it will be the sociable Josefina or Luis, a gelding who looks like a big dude, but deep down he’s over-sensitive. But one thing we know for sure – you will not only never forget travelling with donkeys, but you will also learn a lot of new things.

Experiences on Želivka – Bee World and Water House

Can you imagine a world without Maya the bee and Vilík? You see, you can’t! But it can happen, and not in the distant future. Hard-working bees, which are an essential part of the natural cycle, have become an endangered species. And that’s why it’s so important that we find out more about their lives than we hear in the classroom. Take your children on a trip to the Bee World in Hulice, where they will learn everything about bees in an amusing educational exhibition. You don’t have to worry that they will get bored with long texts or exhibits that they are not allowed to get within one metre of. The Bee World is a completely different kind of museum – here, children walk around the inside of a giant hive, view the anatomy of bees on touch screen monitors and listen to the sounds of bees in their dwellings.

And while you are in Hulice, visit the Water House, where they will tell you all about this life-giving element. Here, too, the focus is on a playful and interactive form of learning. In the water bar, for example, you will discover that all water tastes completely different, and looking at the aquariums full of fish and plants and listening to the water gurgling will put you in a truly zen state. At that moment, your children will be busy making clouds and examining the particles of the mysterious world beneath the surface under a microscope. And in the end they become the rulers of the rivers – that is, when they try to tame the wayward waterways with pumps, mills and dams.

Zoo Chleby

Zoo Chleby is taking care of a real rarity – the most beautiful monkey on the planet! It’s called a langur duk, and all scientists, travellers, explorers, keepers and zoo bosses agree that langurs are without question the top models of the primate kingdom. Would you rather verify their claims? Come and see these ultra cute creatures at Zoo Chleby. And what else awaits you here? This friendly zoo in the Central Bohemian countryside has several contact enclosures where your children can play with, pet and feed the guinea pigs, turtles and goats. Another local rarity is a collection of statues of extinct animals. Don’t expect any scary dinosaurs, but species that we humans have wiped out in the last few hundred years. Seeing this makes each of us realise how important it is to care for our planet and all its inhabitants and treat them with love and respect.
