PALEONTOLOGY MUSEUM AND MUSEUM OF NATURAL HISTORY
Parents always want to make learning a priority for their kids, and what better way to mix it up with a little bit of fun and heaps of fascination. Larnaca’s Paleontology Museum will allow them to discover wondrous facts and stories about all their favorite dinosaurs. The Museum is also home to ancient pygmy elephant bones dating as far back as 10,000 BC.
LARNACA SALT LAKE
Another spectacular entertainment opportunity that allows your children to appreciate the glories of nature, along with learning about 85 different species of rare water birds. The Salt Lake is an integral passage for migratory birds, and truly the best place for bird watching. So, if you’re eager to inculcate a fascinating new habit in your kids, this beautiful landmark is just the place!
Larnaca is home to a great many amusement parks that offer paintball battlefields, quad biking, and much more. It is a great opportunity to unwind and have an exciting night with your children, who may not be as excited about the scenic beaches that the region has to offer.
You can treat them out to the amazing rides at the Lucky Star Fun Amusement Park, or even the Agiou Georgiou Kontou Playground. When the weather isn’t so friendly, you can even check out some of the indoor entertainment facilities, for instance the WOW Action Park, Ciokoland or Fun Factory. K-Max Bowling arena is incredibly popular amongst teenagers
KAMARES ROMAN AQUEDUCT
A beautifully distinctive spectacle of ancient architecture, the Kamares, which loosely translates into arch, Aqueduct was constructed back in the 1700s. It is the most wonderful site to give your kids an important history lesson without boring them to death. As they explore the glorious 75 arches of the Aqueduct, they will be stunned with the heritage that the region has to offer.
Now that we have discussed many albeit not all the wonderful places to explore and enjoy with one’s families, let’s turn our attention towards what’s missing, shall we?
Larnaca is missing a large-scale shopping mall, and even though there are many smaller shopping plazas, the shopaholics of the region could really use a little more variety. But now that the Metropolis Mall is well under construction we can all rest assured that Larnaca is about to welcome a remarkable new entertainment and shopping facility.
Larnaca witnesses hot, arid and muggy summers while the winters are bitterly cold and the culture of open air spaces and roaming around the beaches doesn’t always work like a charm. We all understand that the region lacks facilities to cater to extreme weather, and allow us to relax with our families while braving the humid heat or the prickly cold for that matter.
