The teddy bear hospital is an international project set up by medical students which has taken place for numerous years in various countries.
The teddy bears interact with the children in a playful manner with the aim of making them less scared of medical personnel and hospitals.
The teddy bear hospital is open on 29th and 21st December all day until 16.00 and entrance is free for all.
Children can bring their own favourite soft toys to get treatment from the teddy bear docs in the teddy hospital.
