Fun Things to Do with Kids in Armenia
In recent years, Armenia has actively developed new options for kids’ entertainment which led to the construction of a large number of children’s cafes and centers. Now let’s see what are the best places to take your kids to during your Armenia:
Yeraz amusement park is a quite new but already quite popular destination for family rest. In winter, the park is transformed into a real fairy tale with Santa’s house, elves, ice rink and ice sculptures. The park is no less interesting in summer. In summer the park is divided into 4 interesting parts: Alice in Wonderland, Little Red Riding Hood, Three Little Pigs and Lost Dream. Moreover, the park has an interesting labyrinth, a small lake, attractions, and many sweets.
Citizen is a unique entertainment complex created exclusively for children. That is a small town where children can for a while feel themselves as adults. Here they will have an opportunity to choose and learn different professions, get paid for work and spend money. Citizen has a complete infrastructure, there is a hospital, a police station, a school, a beauty salon, a bank, a municipality, etc. Children can be fully involved in the game, communicate and make their own decisions.
Water World is the only open water park in Yerevan. There are all kinds of water attractions for children and adults, a large swimming pool, Jacuzzi and much more on 2 hectares of the Water World. It is a wonderful place to escape from the city heat.
The Water World is open from June 1st till the middle of September. If you have planned a trip to Armenia for the winter months, there is a close water park Aquatek on the territory of Water World.
For a long time, locals have been talking about a new interesting park to be opened in Yerevan. Today “Dinoland” already welcomes kids and adults to take a closer look at huge dinosaurs. It is a wonderful amusement park with animated dinosaurs of seven meters height. They are truly impressive, still dinosaurs are not meant to scare children. The idea of the park is to show the children a different world.
Dinosaurs move, blink, make sounds, breathe and carry eggs. The most frightening of dinosaurs is the tyrannosaur. Everything is done quite realistically. Both children and adults in the park will spend an unforgettable day.
There are several exotariums with exotic animals in Yerevan, but the most popular one is the Amazon exotarium located in Yerevan Mall.
There are more than 30 exotic animals in the exotarium including parrots, monkeys, rare species of spiders, iguanas, dwarf kangaroos, etc.

Fun Things to Do with Kids in Georgia
In every resort town of Georgia there is entertainment for children like children’s beaches, skiing tracks in ski resorts, children’s entertainment parks and much more. To make our list of top 10 fun things to do with children we have picked five best entertainment places in Tbilisi for children.
Bombora is the most colorful and bright place in the city. The park is located on Mtatsminda Mountain, from where you will have the best view of the city. The park is named after Georgian fairy tale, and indeed, the park looks like a fairy tale. There are distorted castles, upside down houses, huge sculptures, mysterious caves, a pirate ship and, of course, a huge number of attractions for adults and children. The most exciting is the Ferris wheel from which you can see the panorama of Old Tbilisi. The park is quite large, and you can take a train to see everything.
Experimentarium is a new concept of the children’s museum, where you can not only watch, but also touch and test the exhibits. In the interactive museum, young guests are invited to participate in chemical experiments, to become cosmonauts and to ride on the cosmonaut’s simulator, to draw with sand on the glass and much more.
The most exciting exhibit in the museum is the “talking head”. It is a special device that hides the whole body and shows only the head. Children get so excited playing with the talking head.
Vake is the largest park in Tbilisi. It is not only a green recreation area in the city center but also a territory with interesting entertainment for children. There is one non-traditional café in the park called Innova that has no analogues in the city.
Here everything is in bright neon colors, but this is not the main feature of the cafe – the most interesting part is its menu. The searchlight above the table displays the menu right on the table. Be sure to order drinks and they will be served in real test tubes. For a minute you will feel yourself as a scientist trying some dangerous liquid.
The idea of such contact zoos is to give children an opportunity to get acquainted with animals and love nature. In the contact zoo, you can pet rabbits, turtles and chickens. Animals are so cute that even the smallest kids feel absolutely comfortable. The mini zoo has also a terrarium with snakes and lizards.
The Rope Park in Tbilisi is a great idea to spend a family vacation. The park has several routes with obstacles from ropes, sticks, bridges and nets. The task of children is to go through the obstacles on the ropes without touching the ground.
The park is equipped with all the amenities for safety. There are used the newest technologies and professional climbing materials. The routes have the line of insurance. Moreover, professional instructors are always around to help children.
