Baku zoo is a state zoological park in Baku. It is the oldest zoo in Azerbaijan and was opened in 1928. It belongs to the Ministry of Culture and Tourism of Azerbaijan and to the Mayoralty of Baku city. The total area of the zoo is.HistoryBaku zoo was opened in 1928, in the territory of a park named after Lunacharsky (today this park is named after Nizami).In 1942, a new zoo was founded on the basis of evacuated Rostov zoo, the opening ceremony of which was held after the Great Patriotic War. Until 1958, the zoological park was located near a railway station in a small square, which was later named after Ilich.In 1958, the zoo was relocated to Bayil township, on the outskirts of Baku and remained there until the middle of 1970s, when a Bayil landslide happened, during which a lion and a bear died crushed in a fallen cage. This tragic event made the city power to think about a new, safe place for the zoo, but until the decision was made, the zoo was temporarily relocated to Razin township (at present Bakikhanov township), where it was located until 1985.But during this period of time an expert group of zoologists, biologists and other specialists decided that a park located in the territory of Narimanov rayon of Baku was the appropriate place for habitation of animals. Construction of the new zoo was begun near a railway station for children, and according to the plan were allocated for it. To speed up construction it was decided to temporarily use only of the land and later expand the territory by constructing a circular railway for children at the zoo.

  • Usually we love zoos, and very to the point, we are Bakuért, the city is beautiful, but the Zoo is still the basis for improvement. The animals are small and dirty cages, odours, as well as terjengenek I személyszerint very sorry for them, that many times alone in a cage, in such circumstances, live

  • I have fishechka-the first step in any major city always go to the Zoo-they are all so different and most of the leaves a favorable impression. Unfortunately, this does not apply to the Zoo in Baku. The territory of the Zoo is small and everything what the shabby. Animals becomes really pathetic (They sad and his eyes them sad. Look absolutely neuhozhennyj.

  • The Zoo in no way conforms to the requirements and qualities of a Western Zoo. As it looks more like a Petting Zoo but if you runs you see bears and big cats in too small cages. After we have asked the woman at the box office or the Zoo is also modernized gave them to that the Zoo at the end of this month (August 2018) is closed for modernisation. So do you want for 2 azn 100 years back in time then you need to hurry up!
