Puzzles, Games, and a Slice of History

When exploring new places, every visitor’s steps lead directly to the historic center. Discover the Old Town of Košice with your own copy of the new Košice Children’s Pass, which you can pick up for free at your gateway to the city, at Visit Košice Infopoint on Hlavna Street 59. The space includes, among other things, a multimedia room that could be your first stop on the road to discovering the fun of Košice and its surroundings. Alongside the illustrated guide, the friendly character Buki, playful texts, and signs will lead you to the most enjoyable corners that reveal the charm of the historic city.

For the ultimate experience, don’t hesitate to stay at Hotel Ambassador, right in the heart of Košice. Enjoy comfortable rooms, relax with a massage in the wellness center, or savor specialties at the hotel restaurant in the immediate heart of Košice.

Day #1

Head over to The Rooms for an escape room adventure where you’ll challenge your mind with logical puzzles within a time limit. Choose from popular themes like Avatar, Pirates of the Caribbean, Lord of the Rings, or Harry Potter. If you prefer to kick off your sporting activities before heading to the escape rooms, take a bus or tram to the Optima Shopping Center. Here, you can have a blast rollerblading, climbing on the wall, or bouncing on trampolines at the multifunctional sports facility Steam Factory, offering a full-day family program.

Combine a unique active adventure with exploring the underground of the city at the newly opened Underground Archaeological Museum of Dolná brána. Here, you’ll witness firsthand the original foundations of the stone fortifications of the city, mysterious corridors, and the borders of medieval Košice. After a quality cultural program, we recommend sealing the evening with dinner on the picturesque terrace of the Primi restaurant, where children can bake their own pizza!

Day #2

Spend the second day of your family vacation visiting the Museum of Vojtech Löffler, where various exhibitions, musical performances, and lectures are regularly held. Learn about the life story of the significant Košice artist who dedicated his life to sculpture, and give space to your own creativity! You can nurture your artistic talent during creative workshops for children and adults alike.

Combine your museum visit with relaxation at the authentic Úsmev the Cinema, where a special program awaits children–Monday holiday screenings with free popcorn! Choose from a wide range of current blockbusters or art films, sit in the shade of trees on the outdoor terrace, or participate in cultural and entertainment events in the cinema’s spaces. Satisfy your hunger after the movie with the legendary Košice hot dog, Robinček, at the famous food truck next to the cinema.

Relax in nature and adrenaline combined into one experience

Day #3

After your artistic and cultural activities in the city center, recharge amidst the dense forests of the second largest urban forest in Central Europe. Pack your bags at the historic Hotel Bankov in the recreational zone of Bankov, steeped in mining history. Enjoy its large summer terrace, children’s playground, and play ping pong or petanque with the kids. The hotel can even prepare a picnic or barbecue basket filled with goodies upon request–all that’s left is to embark on a walk around the area.

Spend your afternoon in Čermeľské Valley with an experiential ride on the historic Children’s Railway Košice, which has been operating a 4.2-kilometer route since the 1950s. Try out the new handcar track with the kids and for a moment, become a real switchman or guide!

If you crave a day in the park near the city center, don’t miss visiting Anička Area, where you can play mini golf, visit animals at the mini zoo, or have fun on the playgrounds, maze, or trampoline. The area also hosts concerts, performances, and children’s theater, and you can easily satisfy your hunger and thirst at the local bistro or food truck village Klídek. Have you heard about the ancient springs of Gajdovka? Bring bottles to collect water from this healing mineral spring.

Day #4

One day of your visit to Košice should definitely be reserved for the legendary Košice adventure in the district of Kavečany, where you will discover ZOO Košice. This zoo is home to 300 species of animals and 1800 individuals, with natural enclosures comparable to the largest in Slovakia. During your visit, enjoy beautiful views of the Kavečany hills and have the opportunity to observe animal feedings. Don’t miss the DinoPark, where you can admire replicas of ancient dinosaurs. For those seeking an unusual experience, there’s the option to sleep in wooden tents in the zoo–who wouldn’t want to sleep among wolves?

Enjoy the commented feedings of seals, penguins, and meerkats, experiences in the popular 5D cinema in DinoPark, and recharge in the restaurant directly on-site. After lunch, reserve time for a wild ride with twists and turns on the Bobovka bobsled track, located right before the entrance to the zoo. Bobovka offers a thrilling ride with nine curves and three tunnels on an 800-meter track. Hold on tight!

Adventurous trips in the district

The Košice Children’s Pass will take you on an adventure not only to explore historical landmarks and attractions in the city center or on its outskirts. How about discovering fun near the borders of Košice? Stay at Hotel Crystal and take advantage of public transport or a car close to your accommodation.

Day #5

If you still want to go on another trip near Košice, don’t miss the opportunity to visit Archeoskanzen in Nižná Myšľa. Here, you can show your children how a prehistoric village looked and even enter replicas of our ancestors’ homes. Include a visit to the Myšľa Village Museum, where you can explore archaeological sites of the region, church history, and mysterious underground passages.

After visiting these attractions in the Košice district, treat yourself to a hearty dinner at the popular restaurant Villa Regia, just steps away from Hlavná Street. Every gourmet and fan of traditional home cooking will enjoy dishes like potato dumplings with fried butter, poppy seeds, or breadcrumbs!
