Tips for a family holiday in the Czech Republic
Parents often devote great effort to coming up with a holiday that would give their children an unforgettable and irreplaceable experience while at the same time teaching them something. And many children, aware of these parental intentions, also put great mental effort into the task of avoiding a thoroughly parent-managed holiday that would mean endless hours of wandering through stately homes and museums. Yet there is a possibility of a compromise that would satisfy all parties thoroughly – in the Czech Republic what appears to be boring history turns into a captivating tale, and children and adults can agree on a common language.
