1. Bonfire by the Vistula river
We recommend beaches near Saska Kępa or next to La Playa. There are wooden playgrounds and places to set bonfires. Besides, beach always seems to be a perfect attraction – the biggest sandbox in the city where you can build your own castle or fly a kite.
2. Experiments at Copernicus Science Centre
Wybrzeże Kościuszkowskie St 20
It is already a hit, the biggest exploratorium for kids, with a cosmic garden at the top and planetarium. The Copernicus Centre prepares for an expansion and change of exposition. And then it will be even more exciting.
3. Ice cream, pizza, and colourful burgers
LUKULLUS W ST. TROPEZ
ROZBRAT ST 22/24
HOŻA ST 51
NARBUTTA ST 38
BRZESKA ST 29/31
SKWER T. KAHLA
POZNAŃSKA ST 3
RACŁAWICKA ST 7
Icecream always seems like a good idea. Our favourite ice cream parlours are Tłusty Kotek (drop by to the nearby CRUX with a climbing wall), Jednorożec, Lukullus w St. Tropez and Pallone. And if you suddenly in the summertime crave pizza we recommend eating at Dwa Osiem at Plac Zabaw located by the Vistula. It is adjacent to a bike pump track so kids can go wild before eating. Colourful burgers at VegeMałpa are also worth trying.
4. Goats at Służew Cultural Centre
Jana Sebastiana Bacha St 15
We value modern and well functioning cultural centres. We sign up kids for classes at the Służew Cultural Centre (well designed but also promotes ecology, kids can cultivate a vegetable garden and feed goats), Wola Cultural Centre or Bemowo Cultural Centre. At Open Jazdów kids can learn something about ecology during workshops that take place in the wooden houses. There are beehives and a vegetable garden as well.
5. Museum for Children at the National Ethnographic Museum
KREDYTOWA ST 1
In a specially designed space (5 large rooms) kids can explore the whole world, learn about various cultures (traditional and modern), objects and phenomena from different continents. Moreover, they learn how museum functions.
6. King Matt’s Family Education Area at POLIN
POLIN Museum of the History of Polish Jews
ANIELEWICZA ST 6
King Matt’s is a fabulously colourful and modern space at POLIN Museum where children can have fun and learn. Check out a detailed programme of activities and events…
7. Swimming pool and rope park in Powsin
CULTURE PARK IN POWSIN
Culture Park in Powsin is an excellent idea for a one-day trip ( bus number 509 goes directly from the city centre). The city has recently released for use a newly renovated outdoor swimming pool and football pitches. We believe that the rope park in Powsin will be of great interest to young visitors. Additionally, we recommend visiting the nearby botanical garden where kids can admire various plants including exotic. One of the attractions is an unusual terrarium with guinea pigs.
8. Trampolines at Hangar
Domaniewska St 37a
WAŁ MIEDZESZYŃSKI ST 646
DALANOWSKA ST 29
This is a perfect place to really tire your kids out and also get in shape. Hangar 646 has three locations — in a former airline hangar in Gocław, Targówek, and Mokotów. There are trampolines, batons, blow-up pillows, pools filled with rubber balls, ramps for skateboarders, skiers and snowboarders — and that is only a handful of what Hangar has to offer.
9. Books at Dwie Siostry
DWIE SIOSTRY BOOKSHOP
3 MAJA AVE 2
A bookshop of your dreams. Parents can drink coffee, kids can search through shelves filled with beautifully published books. Readings and workshops for children.
10. Dinosaurs at the museum and in a playground
RAKOWIECKA ST 4
PUSZCZYKA ST 18
Sceletons of dinosaurs are the best! Kids love this museum just like we used to when we were young. Old fashioned, full of minerals of different sorts, and educational boards on the origins of life on our planet. You can also meet dinosaurs in the playground in Puszczyka St 18 (Ursynów).
