Children might not always be interested in sightseeing, architecture or hidden gems of the city. However, it’s easy to organize a family walk in search of:

- monuments of Polish cartoon characters – Reksio (11 Listopada), Bolek and Lolek (pl. Bolka i Lolka, by the main entrance to Galeria Sfera)

- unusual building decorations – e.g. two amusing frogs (pl. Wojska Polskiego), or numerous murials 

- funny fountains – Peeing Little Devil-Boy (the Castle's walls); Children Playing with a Bird (pl. Chrobrego), or Mermaid (next to the President Hotel)


Children seem to also like the Old Town Square with the running fountain, bridge and other constructions.
