Here they can provide professional assistance to your baby, daily master classes are held, in particular in the fresh air to distract children, here they can find new friends, - commented on the opening of the children's town Deputy Prime Minister for European and Euro-Atlantic Integration of Ukraine Olha Stefanishyna.
