Everyone needs to relax: students, adults, and elders alike, there are no exceptions. Cozy cafés, lounge bars, and clubs in the center of Prague compete with each other for attention of tired visitors. However, if a lazy and sluggish lifestyle is not for you, you will have to go farther, discover some non-touristic places and literary go to the extreme! Here are some ideas for active recreation lovers.

Who doesn’t like karting? It allows everyone to become a child for half an hour, leaving a feeling of lightness and unlimited happiness for the rest of the day. Prague has four karting centers: Praga Arena, Kart Centrum Radotín, Motokáry Praha and KartAreal. The biggest of them are Praga Arena and Kart Centrum Radotín with tracks as long as 910 meters. For die-hard karting lovers, races are organized every month in KartAreal – five best drivers get free tickets to KartAreal Olšany.

If you’ve ever dreamed of flying, jump parks can make your dream come true. There are a few of them in Prague, but Jump Park Praha located in Prague 3 is one of the biggest in Europe. There are all kinds of entertainment in the park: 3D dodgeball, wall trampolines, foam pit, and a space for free jumping. Another jump park, Freestyle Kolbenka, besides usual trampolines, offers springboards and artificial ski tracks with real snow, open even during the summer. It is situated next to Kolbenova metro stop in Prague 9.

The most reckless and courageous people can try sightseeing flights over Prague. Windride flight school provides flights in private planes, where all people can become pilots for one day and even learn to do tricks in the air. Of course, this kind of entertainment is more expensive, but try it once and you will never forget the emotions you experienced.
