And a lot of countries want to make it easier for newcomers (especially families), to feel more at home.

The Czech Republic’s government have developed several initiatives which has helped to secure it’s place as a family-friendly location. Since the 1st of July 2015 adults travelling the Prague public transport network, with children under three years old, do not need to pay – the accompanying adult travels free. Adults must always carry a special ‘Children under three years’ pass with the name, date of birth or national identity card (or passport) of the child – and a current photo. Each card has a handling fee of 20 crowns and parents can request it in the usual ticket offices PID. The pass is valid for one year.
