Well besides the sea and the sun the planetarium is an experience you must not miss. Small movies for all ages are projected in the planetarium dome.

Here you can enjoy only movies projected at 360° and nothing else. The language of the movies is Greek but a translation in English is available. To enjoy the English translation you have to buy...

We enjoyed our visit at the Planetarium, during the summer there is only documentaries to watch that are in Greek. Also the shop has excellent educational toys that are exclusively sold there.

The only activity they are now proposing is the movie "Flying to the Moon". I think the movie fits children 7-. Any way my kids of 14YO and 10YO were not impressed. The cosmos' exhibition is closed...
