A surprisingly nice little
place with lots of antique trains and dolls, complete with
English-language signs on most of them. There are not many things
for the kids to touch, but there are plenty of mysterious mechanical
objects such as music boxes and steam-powered toys for the kids to
speculate about. There is a Barbie exhibit on the second floor that
is quite interesting.

A great sightseeing refuge for tired feet, this quaint,
wood-framed tram travels a loop from Vystavistę, down the banks
of Malá Strana, across to the National Theatre, through Václavské
námęstí and back to Vystavistę by way of Námęstí Republiky.
It can be joined at any stop on the route.
When marionette theater died out in other
parts of Europe, it didn't die out here, and the Czechs today are
quite famous for their marionettes.
