A great way to get to know Cyprus better is to get in the car, take your friends with you and tour from one end to the other. Beside the natural gems of the island, in Limassol among other things, you will discover magnificent theme parks where young and old will have fun, ideal for the upcoming fall weekends.
You can hardly earn a child’s attention and if they dont like something, they will usually express it immediately and completely spontaneously without a second thought.
Masterland in Limassol is the place that will not only keep children’s interest unimpaired, but will also get them excited with the variety of activities for kids.
This is a very different and completely authentic space for Cyprus as it combines fun and entertainment with learning and education. It is actually like a small state where children come into contact with various professions in a direct and interactive way through almost real conditions. Masterland is an area where children will get in touch with the adult occupations and form their own view of each of them.
Masterland is a splendidly designed area, which its owners decided to create after discovering the lack of similar interactive activities for children in Cyprus. In Masterland, children from 4 to 15 years of age can work as builders, bank employees, firefighters, doctors, surgeons, chefs, dentists, police officers, postmen, painters, nurses, detectives and more. An interactive game of professions that even gives them the possibility to secure some kind of salary.
Children can choose which service they want to work and stay there for half an hour where they will take part in the corresponding masterclass workshop.
Children through play will take on various roles, learn about life and work in the real world, acquiring new knowledge, skills and experience.
In the hospital, for example, they will learn about First Aid and for all the different organs of the body in the bank they will learn about the use of the money and in every professional space they choose will draw all the information that a child can perceive to understand through play every profession.
Entrance fee: € 20 for each child and € 5 for parents accompanying them.
*With a 20 euro ticket, the child has 4 hours of work at the venue where he can take part in 4 different workshops.
