Poland’s Special Welcome to Little Travellers
Can a one and a half year old child climb Mount Sniezka single-handedly? Of course, but only in the Miniature Park in Kowary where, apart from the diminutive version of the Observatory on Mount Sniezka, there is a collection of miniature temples and castles from Lower Silesia. As they grow older, they will probably want to see them in their original size. Youngsters can search for dwarfs near Wroclaw, tame dragons in Krakow or ask the friendly Bieluch Spirit in Chelm to grant your wishes. A visit to Krzyztopor Castle in Ujezdzie is an excellent opportunity to ……. practice exercises in mathematics! The huge palace had 365 windows (number of days in the year), 52 rooms (number of weeks in a year), 12 large chambers (number of months in a year) and 4 towers (number of seasons in a year).
The Slowinski National Park is a place of childhood dreams like a giant sandpit and a walk here seems like an expedition through a desert. A journey through time awaits visitors to Jurassic Park in Baltow as well as ……an eye to eye meeting with a dinosaur!
It is impossible to become bored in the Suwalki Landscape Park as there is much to see and do. Visitors cannot leave without sailing on Lake Hancza, seeing the sunrise from the viewing platform at Smolniki, scaling Castle Mount, to reach the Yotvingian (Jacwieskie) Settlement, or Mount Cisowa, the Polish Mount Fuji, or learn about the legends of the enchanted trolls that live in the Rutka boulder field.
In the Wild Animal Park in Kadzidlowo or in the Deer Farm in Kosewo visitors can walk amongst the wild animals and feed the goats or give an apple to a deer. Alternatively, the only zoo safari in Poland can be found in Swierkocin where visitors drive their cars between slow-moving zebras and camels while ostriches look in through their windows.
In the summer it is necessary to have a cruise over grass! To travel the entire length of the Elblag – Ostroda Canal by ship takes about 11 hours so holiday-makers should choose a shorter section and embark on a slipway in one direction and return on the next available ship. Children will also enjoy the slower flowing Krutynia and Biebrza Rivers where rafts can be hired with tents erected on them.
