Children, as well as grown ups, can play in a lego workroom at the Radost House in Žižkov which will be open for free during the entire festival weekend from 10 am to 6 pm. There will be enough lego bricks for little as well as grown-up enthusiasts to build the house of their dreams. The littlest builders can play with duplo bricks.

Special tours with worksheets for little architects will take place in eight selected buildings. These tours will allow children to learn more about each of the buildings and their architecture in a playful way. Unfortunately, these tours are only in Czech.

Just like last year, you can buy “Architektoníček“, our creative city guide. It helps children observe and feel the buildings as well as the public space around them. Information about wheelchair accessibility in the buildings (for example for strollers) are indicated in the printed guide as well as on our website.

Aside from tours for children, a special program for children will take place in other buildings as well. At the Blue House, small children can play in the children’s corner where they will be looked after by our staff while parents can explore the house, and older children can participate in a game where they will search the nooks and crannies of the house and try to figure out its mysteries. A mass for children will take place at the house as well (on Sunday, 9.30 am to 10 am). The House at the Two Golden Bears will have worksheets prepared. The Karlín Barracks will open a relax zone for families with children, and at the Little Villa, there will be a self-service workshop on the topic of the architecture of the villa and its garden that will take place throughout the entire day. There children can create their own architectural plans or even design their own unique garden. Little architects who love to sport should definitely visit the Podkovářská Premises where they can play basketball on the roof of one of the buildings. You can spend the Saturday of the festival in the district of Ďáblice where you can visit the fire station, the observatory, the elementary school, or the community center where you can sit down with a cup of coffee while children can play on the playground outside.
