The month of June offers a host of events – and a new playground in Košice, the Children’s Railway stated in a press release. The new playground at the Čermeľ railway station in the outskirts of Košice, open from the beginning of June, can make waiting for a train more agreeable for the youngest passengers.

On several weekdays at the end of the school year, pupils and students can learn about the work of rescuers, scouts and the city police. These last will demonstrate their work to children on June 14 at Alpínka.
