Summer is a great time. But for me personally, the best option is to spend at least part of it at sea, and even better all three months. No wonder my dream is to live by the sea. Hope it will come true someday.
I don’t like to sit in a stuffy city, because I cannot stand the heat and stuffiness. But it so happens that we spend most of the summer time in the city. If you manage to get somewhere, then for two weeks, not more. Our vacation in Odessa did not quite succeed, as my daughter fell ill and I did not succeed in improving her 100%.
In order to diversify the summer vacation in the city, I offer several options for entertainment with the child.
Rest on the lake or river
In a 10-minute walk from our house there is a lake, and in a 20-minute bay of the Dnieper. You can also go to the embankment, but I don’t really like this place because of dirty water and a lot of people. Whenever possible, I try to get out on the gulf with the child. You can take along a girlfriend for the company or go with your husband (young man).
Be sure to take with you all the water attributes: a circle, a mattress, a paschka, a watering can, a bucket, etc. My daughter loves water and enjoys spending time by the river. The only problem is to periodically make it dry in the sun, so that it does not overcool in water. We usually have all this accompanied by tears and the phrase “Swim!”
Interesting places in the city
Yesterday we finally got to the Landscape Alley, which is located in the area of St. Andrew’s Descent. True, the daughter of many characters was afraid and categorically refused to be photographed. The only thing she liked was a huge snail-coffee shop on wheels, as well as the absorption of cotton candy.
To be honest, I myself have not eaten cotton for 100 years and have not been on Andriyivsky Descent for a long time, so we all enjoyed the walk.
You can also go to Pirogovo – the national museum of folk architecture and life. The territory there is huge, the spaciousness and the fresh air is always loved by children. If summer is hot, it is advisable to visit such places in the morning or in the evening and do not forget to stock up on provisions.
Puppet theaters and museums
I had been going with my daughter for a long time to go to the puppet theater and the water museum, but my ex-husband was ahead of me. Recently, they visited these places. My daughter especially liked the huge soap bubbles in the water museum. But the performance did not want to inspect the daughter until the end, perhaps, something did not like.
In Kiva, there is the Nemo Dolphinarium, which offers various shows for children and adults. My daughter really likes dolphins, so she watched the show to the very end and enthusiastically clapped her hands.
On the Dnieper daily pleasure boats ply. They go about once every 30-40 minutes, wanting in the summer quite a lot. If your child loves such walks, feel free to go. Thus, you can relax yourself and diversify the leisure of your child.
If you think so, the city is full of interesting places for children and adults. Include your imagination and walk. We are still in the plans ostrich farm and a zoo. We visit it every year.
I wish you and your children a pleasant stay!
