Park Mirakulum and the end of October.

We visited Park Mirakulum on the last weekend they had open for the season. It is an outdoor adventure park in Milovice, 40 minutes with car from Prague. We went there with our Libertarian friends in Prague and had a lovely day. Othilia was only 13 months, but there were still plenty of fun stuff to do for her.

Our trip to Park Mirakulum happened in the end of October and a few other things also happened that we will show photos from.
We had noticed that Othilia made huge developmental leaps during this period, leaps which started around our weekend in Budapest, so we wanted to throw her a small birthday party to update her toys. We also met fellow Swedish families in Prague at a pumpkin party, visited a farm in the middle of Holešovice and there will be pictures from Pontus morning walks in this blog post as well.


Vi besökte Park Mirakulum sista helgen de hade öppet för säsongen. Det är en äventyrspark utomhus i Milovice, ca 40 minuter med bil från Prag. Vi åkte dit med våra libertarianska vänner i Prag och hade en härlig dag. Othilia var bara 13 månader under vårt besök, men det fanns fortfarande massor av roliga saker att göra för henne.

Vår resa till Park Mirakulum skedde i slutet av oktober och andra saker hände också runt denna tid som vi kommer att visa bilder ifrån.
Vi märkte att Othilia tog stora steg i hennes utveckling under denna period, språng som började runt vår helg i Budapest, så vi kände att vi ville ge henne ett litet födelsedagsfirande i efterskott för att uppdatera hennes leksaker. I slutet av oktober så träffade vi också andra svenska familjer i Prag på en pumpafest, besökte en gård mitt i Holešovice och det kommer att finnas bilder från Pontus morgonvandringar i detta blogginlägg också.

The Mirakulum Park is a big playground for both children and adults. The different climbing areas are spread out in a forest so the setting feels like something from a fairytale.
The park is quite big in comparison to the price you pay to enter (10 Euro for adults, Othilia was to young to be a paying visitor).
All lot of things are for bigger children and grown ups.
And us parents had a lot of fun here.
But Othilia had so much fun there and she was so brave. Not afraid of heights at all.
Can you spot Othilia?
We were there with friends, but with kids in different ages it was hard to keep in contact. Astrid is the same age as Othilia so our families went around in the park together.
It was in the end of October and we had a lovely day with almost 20 degrees Celsius.
Astrid and Othilia!
A part of the park was designated for the youngest ones.
The park is beautiful!
The rest of October was about enjoying the weather in Prague, soon winter would come. Here is Othilia at the duck pond in the Stromovka park.
Othilia at the playground near our place.
She is so fascinated by balls and she steals older kids balls when they are around trying to play football. These boys were kind enough to lend Othilia a ball.
We were invited to a Pumpkin party at Lya Beer Café, which is owned by a Swedish guy from Gävle. While there I also meet another Swedish person, Malin, and we realized quite fast that we had gone to the same Gymnasium in Gävle. The world is small!
Othilia took a water break during the pumpkin painting. Her friend David showed her how to work the paintbrush.
We visited the club house for the Boys Adventure Club (Navigators). They were building it at an abandoned area in the middle of Holešovice.
Next to the Club house is the Metro Farm, a collaborative farm that volunteers are taking care of. They accept bitcoin for the eggs!
An artist has put his metal work in this areas, making this a wonderful oasis in Holešovice.
Othilia made huge developmental leaps so we needed to update her toys. So we celebrated her birthday again with a few gifts.
She loves her fishing puzzle!
We want to end with the usual morning photos of Prague from Pontus walks.

Back in our gem Praha

We are in Praha (Prague in Czech) and the fall is always busy for us here in Praha, the capital of the Czech Republic. I want to show you pictures from where we first arrived to Prague in September, the weather was beautiful and it is always nice to prolong the summer, which is quite short in Northern Europe.

Prague or Praha is the closest thing we have to a base and we realized that we have spent seven out of Othilia’s 13 first months here. Enjoy the birth city of our daughter!


Vi är i Praha (Prag på tjeckiska) och hösten är alltid uppbokad för oss här i Praha, Tjeckiens huvudstad. Jag vill visa er bilder från vad vi gjorde då vi först kom till Prag i september. Vädret var vackert och det är alltid trevligt att förlänga sommaren som är ganska kort om man befinner sig i nordeuropa.

Prag eller Praha är det närmaste vi har en bas och vi insåg att vi har tillbringat sju av Othilias 13 första månader här. Njut av vår dotters födelsestad!

The first thing we did was to meet up with friends and have a barbecue on a roof top. Stunning sunset that welcomed us to Prague!
Othilia loves her new play room and is is a fine climber of stairs. Our daughter is so brave and unafraid of things, but still so careful and asks to hold our hand patiently if she judges that she needs our assistance over some obstacle.
Pontus continues to wake up early in the morning and take a walk. He always takes pictures that we want to share with you. Here is Prague while waking up to a new day!

Some mornings are more cloudy than others.

We are hanging out with the King family and the Vietnamese market had a food festival in September. We love Vietnamese food so we had to visit the festival and let Othilia try it out. She liked it as well!
We visited Othilia’s pediatrician and our daughter was 75 cm and weighed 9950 grams. We have a nice pediatrician that is in full sync with how we view the world and our lifestyle! We like that.
There is so much things to do her in Prague for kids, we have mentioned that before. Here is an exhibition out in the open at the Stromovka park about the the moon landings and the race to space.
And signs both in Czech and English. That is something you don’t see everywhere here in the Czech Republic.
End of September and we enjoyed the summer.
This was a short recap of the last days in September for us here in Prague. October was much more busy for us! And Othilia’s development accelerated to a pace none of us were prepared for. It is an exciting ride to be fortunate enough to follow a child grow up.
