Fun for kids in Paris
Those who travel to Paris with kids, often wonder how to entertain in the French capital with their child, whether the child is an interesting tour to Paris. However, parental concerns are entirely unfounded, after all Paris is not only the best place for romantics and dreamers, but also a wonderful city for families with children. And for this, at least, five reasons.
View of Paris
Visit the Eiffel tower — one of the most memorable events. Now you do not need to stand in line for several hours: it is possible to book everything online. In any case, I would recommend going early in the morning until a crowd of people. You can also enjoy the view of Paris if you climb the arc de Triomphe. If boating is the first in the “children’s list”, then a trip on the Seine will give you a completely different view of Paris.

The majority of parents thinks that children stay in Paris is linked with Disneyland. But there are many other theme parks near Paris that offer something completely different. In the North of Paris there is the Asterix Park (Parc Asterix) — a large theme Park that rasskajet famous comic characters. Children of any age will be satisfied. In the West of Paris, close to Versailles, you can visit the whole of France in less than one day in the biggest miniature theme Park in Europe — Miniature France (France Miniature). And one more for the little ones — fun Park Playmobil.

The Museums Of Paris
These days many museums around the world are making no small effort to attract not only adults but also children. And Paris is in this sense not an exception. How about a visit to the wax Museum Grevin . opened in 1882 not only that, it has a lot of celebrities, the Museum has a lot of reconstructions of French history.
There is also a Museum of magic and the natural history Museum with its great gallery of evolution (Grande Galerie de l’evolution). But favorite of all the museums of Paris — Cite des Sciences et de l’industrie (City of science and industry) is one of the world’s largest and most visited science museums. It is a Museum of high technology, and it is very practical for children of all ages. Children love the submarine “Argonaut” (Argonaute). You can see it every day, except Monday, from 10 to 17.30, Sunday — 18.30 (nearest metro station is Porte de la Villette).
Parks and gardens
In Paris many parks and gardens. The third largest in Paris is the Parc des Buttes Chaumont (Parc des Buttes-Chaumont), with its cliffs and bridges, a grotto with a 20-foot waterfall, a lake, and several English and Chinese gardens. But perhaps the most popular attractions for children — two puppet theatre.

There are also three interesting gardens in the city centre. The Tuileries garden (Le jardin des Tuileries) is situated between the place de La Concorde, Rue de Rivoli, the Louvre and the river Seine, will offer to ride on the donkey, ice cream, puppet theatre. Here you can rent a boat with toys.
There are also entertainment and on the South Bank of the Seine, the Luxembourg gardens and the Champ de Mars. In the Northern part of the Bois de Boulogne you will be able to ride a pony and see puppet shows for younger children. And older children can ride on the rollers.
Day in the circus of Paris
If your kids love the circus, then why not visit him and spend the day at the Paris circus . located in the Parc des Chanteraines. In the morning the children will be able to try yourself in the role of actors of the circus and be a juggler, a clown or a magician. There are also two restaurants in which to dine or bring your own lunch. And in the afternoon you will view a variety of exotic animals, clowns and other performances. The Park is within a ten minute drive from Paris. The circus runs from ten in the morning until five in the evening every Wednesday and Friday.
Note to parents
If you want to avoid problems at registration of Schengen in France, try to foresee all the nuances. Especially if you go with Chad on tour with one of the parents. In advance will receive a permit for the removal of the child from the other parent. The authorization must be notarized and translated into French. A properly executed permit will be required at the Embassy and will increase your chances of getting the coveted visa.
