Prague Zoo, Prague
(4.7/5 based on 6,000+ reviews on the web)
Prague Zoo occupies a wooded area on the right bank of the Vltava River. Home to nearly 5,000 animals from almost 700 different species, the park offers you a chance to come face-to-face with giraffes, gorillas, polar bears, tigers, and red pandas. Although the park shelters over 130 species listed as critically endangered, its most important possession may be a herd of rare Przewalski’s horses, native to the steppes of central Asia. Stop by to see the descendants of the last Przewalski's horse caught in the wild, and discover other highlights of this animal sanctuary by taking a guided ride on the zoo's miniature cable car. Use our Prague vacation trip planner to arrange your visit to Prague Zoo and other attractions in Prague.

  • Too bad there went in late November where the cold many animals were kept inside! Many snacks and some point restaurant, pre the price we paid it is definitely worth it, many animals and kept well! I recommend to spend a different day in Prague!

  • When we visited this zoo we felt that we were in an Eastern bloc country. The Zoo was incredibly bad to, the animals went for example right next to a road and around there were lots of factories. I who had just been in the Kristiansand Zoo thought that this was strange stuff. It felt just a little depressing to walk around there. I looked for me a lot of the murderers of park with animals but came instead to a construction site/Zoo/Highway/factory/Eastern bloc area. Disappointing. Also, hid nearly all the animals themselves and the ones we saw, did not seem to have a good time. No this was both depressing and strange. It is amazing that this dilapidated Zoo is in the top 10. Maybe it is better in the summer, but in winter it is fight it is rather depressing, no Christmas decorations there. So this was just a big disappointment.

  • Don't really like zoos, so long thought to visit this place or not. But Prague Zoo exceeded all expectations! Stayed there the whole day until closing, and still left feeling that not all saw the (large area, a huge open-air cages for animals, maximum proximity to natural habitat Wednesday. A great number of animals from all countries and continents. great to visit with children better once there-an unforgettable experience will be provided in the years ahead.

  • This is the only major zoo I've ever been to sadly so I can't truly compare it with other zoos, but it's surely something. The sheer number of animals on display is breathtaking. I honestly can't think of any realistic animal they don't have on display. The are in massive and sometimes open spaces showing the animals in a nearly natural environment. The zoo itself keeps updating it's facilities with several new buildings added in the last few years.
  • Most beautiful zoological garden in Czech Republic. Totally worth visiting. Recommended!
  • One of the best in the World! Great routes, amazingly well kept animals and great opportunities on how animals feed (just check the website before to be at the right spot, at the right time). A place for adults and kids and for Ingress players, you have plenty of portals and am sure also Pokemon Go players will find some uniques there. Fully recommended!
  • Almost completely void of tourists. Inexpensive and fantastic food. Beautiful exhibits. Highly recommend.
  • Super neat, lots of free space for animals, many restaurants and alot of wcs! Great place to visit in Prague!! Just superb!
