  • It was one of the main goals during the 4 day holiday, mainly because of the ladies. We even saw feeding both large pandas and red, sea lions, tigers, koala. The zoo is excellently divided, you can cross back and forth, it is not like eg. in Pilsen, where there is one large circuit. The staff were very friendly and helpful. For me, it's definitely the best zoo I've ever seen.

  • This place is amazing. When you leave a place and you kids tell you: we would like to work in this zoo when we grow up, you feel I have done the best decision ever to go and visit it! Thank you for leaving such good memories into our kids mind 💕 Pictures taken by son 5 years old **
  • I'm normally against the whole concept of Zoo's but this one is a bit different. First, they focus on conservation and have various programs and projects. Second, the cages are really roomy and the animals looks like they are really taken care of. Third, the Verity is really something else. Had a really good time with the kids. Recommended.
  • Wonderful zoo. Good play opportunities for kids. Can become extremely crowded in the summer on weekends and holidays. There are 3 entrances/exits which all connect the zoo to the surrounding park which makes it very easy to combine trips to both.
  • Fantastic zoo. Oldest one in Europe. They are constantly working to improve upon the sizes of the habitats. Interesting feedings,friendly staff, good place to go rain or shine,summer and winter. Prices in the food areas are rather high though,bring your own if you want to save. The annual pass is absolutely worth it's price.
  • The zoo was huge! All the animals were beautiful. There was a wonderful array of animals as well as plants. The nature hike to the restaurant in the forest and walking through the tree bridge was very cool and the sites were beautiful. Next time, we'll come when its colder so the polar bears and some of the other arctic animals can be out. The park is stroller friendly for the most part.
