The CHILDREN’S CENTER is the most colorful place at the Uzana Polyana Fest. This is the place where not only children but also their parents will feel comfortable. Our mission is to help the youngest visitors of the festival to build ecological thinking. All activities in the Children’s Center aim to make our children think of a sustainable future for our planet.
The Yin / Yang Center – What is inside is also outside! Our health depends on our emotions. Here we breathe, feel and dance. Here you can participate in various types of yoga, paneurhythmy, dancing, meditation and breathing practices.
In the KNOWLEDGE zone, everyone can take his own small steps toward a sustainable lifestyle for a possible green future. Here we invite professionals and enthusiasts to share with us their formula for balancing the pursuit of development and the need to slow down. The Knowledge Space program has two lecture panels: „Green Restart“ and „Health“.
At NaZdrave zone you can treat yourselves with delicious, healthy and colorful food! Here carefully selected chefs offer a variety of dishes, salads, desserts and drinks, created with a lot of love and care for people and nature.
