The summer in the northern hemisphere is already here, and it is about a time to start planning what to do for fun in the coming months. Although entertainment is not always linked to sports, it is scientifically proven that playing sports can improve your mood by increasing the levels of dopamine in the body. So, medical talk aside, I suggest you spend a day of your summer holidays in Bulgaria in the adventure park Prikazkata near Vratsa.
This park`s target audience is children, but their older siblings, parents, and family members are all welcome. You can find the adventure park near the town of Vratsa, about 3 km from the town centre. Vratsa is located in northern Bulgaria, about 60 km from the capital, Sofia.
The adventure park has something to offer to every visitor. It is built in the woods, which means that you get to spend time in nature. All facilities are made with eco-friendly materials, so the park is in complete unison with its surroundings. The facilities are also completely safe and are often used for team-building activities from different companies.
The facilities in the adventure park are divided into five different zones - Art zone, War zone, Alpine zone, Game zone, and Party zone.
The art zone is the place where private and public events are held, as well as shows, film screenings, concerts. There is an open-air cinema and also a stage under the stars.
The name may sound a bit hostile to you, but the war zone is just the opposite. It is a place where activities such as archery, shooting-grounds, and a paintball area are located.
As it is probably clear from the name, the Alpine zone includes a climbing wall, rope-trolley gliding, bungee jumping, and three rope-parks – two for children of different ages, and one for adults.
The Game zone is directed at every visitor who, no matter his age, is still connected to his inner child. The area offers bowling, mini-golf, darts, and pony-riding. There is also a game section for the youngest – up to the age of 7, with swings, slides, and other fun facilities.
Yes, you've read that correctly - there is even a party zone. There is a barbecue area, with 55 sitting places, as well as a café. The party zone is called like this because you can also use it for private events, such as birthday parties.
Moreover, there are also outer-activities which are part of the park but take place elsewhere. They are all extreme sports activities and are perfect for adventurous people. Those activities include rafting, caving, rappelling down a waterfall, etc. For more information, you can contact the team of the park directly on their Facebook page.
Very often, we get so caught up in everyday life, problems and stress, that we forget that our mental health is just as important as our physical one. The adventure park Prikazkata near Vratsa offers you a way to relax and do some fun exercise. A day in this park will recharge you with happy moments and experiences!
