  • What an amazing in zoo it is! I saw different varieties of species here. Zoo is maintained well and all animals are healthy. Area of the zoo is very big and it takes 4 to 5 hours to complete the zoo. Lush green surrounding gives the feel of natural habitat. There is awesome aquarium inside with varieties of fishes. Good food options also available.
  • Very big, with a wide range of animal species. Great restaurants for when you need a break. Animals are well taken care of, grounds are nicely maintained. Great place to take your children
  • Pretty, great. Worth about 3 hrs for €19. Pretty good representation, and it doesn't look like the animals are mistreated, at least not more than any other city zoo. Not huge, but very fun.
  • It is a truly amazing zoo. I spent 4hrs here as I tried to see all the animals. The animals have excellently enclosures and are well taken care of, are not extremely coy and are often visible. They offer good information about the animal in wild habitats and promote education and conservation efforts from governments and not profits. The zoo also has restaurants and children play areas as well as fun souvenir shops. IT IS COMPLETELY WORTH your time and money!!
  • If you want to visit one of the best zoo's in Europe this is definitely the place to see. Lots and lots of animals, including exotic ones. Great for kids!
