The Top 5 Things To Do In Madrid With Kids
Micropolix is a real city, but on a children's scale. It is located in a covered enclosure of 12,000 square meters, in San Sebastián de los Reyes (about 30 kilometers from the center of Madrid, approximately 40 minutes by car), and here the smallest will be responsible for making this city work. There are streets, squares, lampposts, banks... There is a town hall, a hospital, supermarkets, a police department, a television set... And to enjoy leisure activities, children/citizens will have to work and earn “Eurix”, their own currency from Micropolix. A fun and original plan to enjoy while the little ones learn values such as independence and effort!
