Karlovac for Kids
Children’s playgrounds in all parts of the town, winter sledding in the moats, summer swimming on the river beaches… it is just a part of the activities enjoyed by all the generations. Swimming and angling courses and creative workshops of all kinds are ideal when it comes to encouraging the young ones to become great adults.
Going to school or kindergarten in Karlovac means a short walk. The farewell party for the kindergarten kids is called the Little Commencement Ceremony, while the high school graduates traditionally organise a procession with theme-based costumes, making them the most original high school graduates in the world. Is this an exaggeration? In any case, it is just the result of pride of the children who grow up to be great and upstanding Karlovac citizens.
Karlovac is full of little spots for children, different from all the other spots. Some of the examples of care and effort invested in future adults are the therapeutic children’s playground at Vunsko polje, near the Korana river, and the specialised children’s bookstore and pastry shop Knjiguljica in the old town.
