We love interactive activities that provide both the space for fun and learning. Aurelium in Bratislava is just that kind of space, where not only the children but also adults can find an experiment they will love. Aurelium, the science hub has its door opened to children from 12 years. The entrance fee is 2 euro per child and 4 euro per adult, which we dare to say is next to nothing for all the fun you’ll get. You will find Aurelium at Bojnická 3 in Bratislava.
Imagine taking your family to a museum of optic illusions, filled with real graffiti artworks spread on two floors. You can create your own little artwork and look forward to tones of fun and lots of Instagram-worthy photos. If you think that Tripland sounds just like the activity that will excite your children, you will find it at Námestie SNP 15. The entrance for the family – 2 adults and 2 children is 35 euro or 25 euro for 1 adult and 2 children. Tripland is opened daily from 10:15 until 20:15. Have fun and enjoy the illusions.
Bibiana is an international house of art dedicated to children. It allows children to enjoy and experience art in an untraditional matter. You can rely on Bibiana to have some fantastic program going on, making it a space that is always there to welcome you and your children to the magical world of art.

Jump Arena is a lot of fun, kids can try different types of trampoline, foam pit, jumps from the tower to the airbag and much more.
Being active is very important, but sometimes you and your children just need some downtime. Time to sit and relax and watch the new movie together. Check out the program at Cinemax Bory Mall or Cinema City in Aupark, Eurovea or Polus. Or visit some 5D cinemas to have fun.
And again we are in Koliba, just a short walk from the bobsled run you will find a great rope centre. An impressive length of 423 metres, 42 obstacles and three cable cars.

Do your children love animals? Then maybe they will enjoy Abeland, a farmer’s village in Lozorno. Here they will meet the life that our grandmothers and great-grandmothers lived, in pure nature, just a short walk from Bratislava. Children will meet geese, ducks, sheep, goats, as well as pigs and a pony. They can see how vegetables, fruits, herbs or different kinds of flowers grow. There are also slides and climbing frames, and you will certainly enjoy a good coffee, tea or delicious homemade gnocchi or poppy seed gnocchi.
In the end we saved something for lovers of heights and fearless children of fearless parents. The K2 climbing wall, the largest in Bratislava, is a challenge. Demanding climbers, who prefer quality and difficult routes, as well as beginners will find it to their liking. There are many climbing obstacles of different climbing difficulty awaiting children, while they are safely belayed, such as climbing in a dark chimney, climbing a giant cube, taming a dragon, going to the moon, jumping from a crane… up to the classic walls with children’s holds. So, are you going to try it? K2 can be found on the Old Ivánská cesta.
Take a trip to the Bratislava Zoo. You will find camels, lions, bears, penguins, zebras, hyenas, wolves, monkeys, llamas, lynxes, turtles, pythons, birds, you will meet lemur and other interesting animals.
