Our family (2 adults, 11/13 yo kids) are in Europe for an extended period with a home base, and heading to Prague for a long weekend in September/October. The adults have been there a few times (always in the summer - it's one of our favorite places), kids have never been.
We love history, food, music, unique experiences, weird sights (e.g. Atlas Obscura), wandering little streets, science and the arts, and scheduling in a little mellow downtime.
We are experienced travelers in Europe and beyond, and kids are intrepid and curious, but our trips have always been much longer (2-4 weeks).
We don't feel we need to see everything, because we know we will be back :) so we're looking for places that will be fun, eye opening, evocative and memorable given relatively narrow parameters. We'd like to see some kind of music performance, and generally soak in the Prague vibe rather than rush around trying to see the "checklist" sights.
We would ideally like to stay centrally where most is walkable (though we are very good on European public transit too) in a family room.
Please chime in with any recommendations for sights, experiences, and restaurants/cafes/food stalls and accommodations!
Thanks in advance :)
