  • Grandchildren (5 and 7 years old) really like in the garden. We play ugadalki-names of flowers, trees, very good that there is an avenue of Linden, oak. pine, etc. where you can review and compare the leaves of various trees and shrubs. can sniff and sketching flowers. And White Sycamore-what a beauty! you can be photographed. is there a café where you can have lunch with the kids, and there are tables on the street, but it's for adults-coffee-tea and "roltony." on the pond, you can watch the swans and.. very interesting from top to observe fish. 4-5 hours pass unnoticed. There are gazebos, benches and shade and Sun.
