5 cities in the world that should be shown to your children first
Last time we talked about traveling with children to the most remarkable cities of Ukraine, but there are enough other wonderful places on the planet Earth that are worth visiting. And of course, show your children.
I remember how the first foreign trip in my life became a cultural shock for me. I was 23 years old and almost arrived in Paris for almost a week. You can be arbitrarily educated, well-read person, but some things can only be touched. And some matter is so subtle that it is difficult to express it with words.
In general, I would not want my children to learn that somewhere in the world people live quite differently from this country. There is no better way to expand horizons than overseas trips, and the earlier you begin to expand the horizons of children's perception of reality, the better.

Naturally, common sense must be present in everything.Until a certain age, children will not understand the difference between London and Khatsapetovka, and the central street of Kryzhopol will cause them the same enthusiasm as the Champs Elysees, if you also run soap bubbles.
But years after 4–5, children are already making their own judgments, and then it is worth considering that if you can afford to travel abroad, then it’s time to start educating young citizens of the world in children.
I can’t call myself a great traveler, but I have been to some places, so my list of 5 cities where I want to bring my children first is based on my personal impressions.
These 5 cities and the reasons for which they are present in the list.
This city of the world. There is no other place where you can show your children so many cultures and various phenomena in just a couple of days. China, Ireland, Spain, Mexico, Italy, a small branch of the USSR in Brighton Beach ... An incalculable number of parks, beautiful museums, a stunning zoo ... and of course, skyscrapers. This is a city that is impossible to forget. There is no better way to show your children that the world is huge and beautiful than to take them to New York.
The focus of European culture and values. The city-museum.A city that seems sunny even in cloudy weather. The best way to show children that art is beautiful is to lay the foundations of good taste in them.
An amazing metropolis where the past and the future meet on almost every corner. Skyscrapers side by side with ancient temples and shacks. The best way to understand that the world is huge, and people of a different race, although they are different from us, nevertheless also know how to create beautiful things and build an amazing culture that you just want to plunge into.
Phenomenal city. While you are here in your head, evil thoughts do not linger. An ideal place to “format” your sense of beauty. Show your child the cleanest beaches right in the city, a surprisingly beautiful sea, take it to a fish restaurant, stroll through the Latin Quarter, show Gaudi's house, hold it so that it does not fall in surprise in front of the Sagrada Familia. You need to go to Barcelona at least once in your life.
Amazing Britain, like Europe, but completely different. And the city-museum is partly similar to Paris, yet produces a completely different impression.He is more serious and strict. And if your child likes it here more than in Paris, get ready for the fact that your financier or banker is growing.
