Prague Zoo, Prague

4.7
#1 of 314 in Outdoors in Czech Republic
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.

  • Were in the Zoo in March 2018 year, walked for a couple of hours, but stayed around 6:00 and the time flew by unnoticed! A lot of animals in the Zoo, and most that I liked that for each of them a huge territory and created (or as close as possible) the natural conditions Wednesday. There are open, and there are private pavilions. Closed remembered most Jungle Pavilion: you like on a carpet plane transported into another world. and here you have already deposited the shakes krasnopopye Macaque! Walk into the next Pavilion and see huge turtles, Goannas! And in the Pavilion with giraffes always crowded: and I wonder how kids and adults watching these amazing long-necked animals! We had a challenge: to see the elephants, and for that, as it turns out you need to go through nearly the whole Zoo! Polar bears, penguins, seals, zebras, cheetahs, Tigers, Meerkats, antelopes, Przewalski's horse, Lions, elephants, gorillas, storks, Kangaroo, EMU ... and many many more! I advise to visit Prague Zoo will be very interesting for both children and adults!

  • Visiting Prague zoo was my favourite experience during my time in Prague. The animals have very large enclosures and seem very well looked after. The ticket prices are cheap too - I got a student tick...  more »
  • Very impressed and deserves special attention. All animals active enclosures clean, open territory in animals is awesome, but what spectacular panoramas of the city unfold with the Zoo-don't pass! With no children, we do not know how we managed to convince our men visit the Zoo, but all are delighted with it. I have so many animals and gladly posed for

  • Fantastic Zoo, great outing for a summer day with kids! To completely enjoy the zoo, one day was not sufficient for us... Feeding time for elephants was fun to watch! Having been to several other zoos, this was the stinkiest zoo that I have ever been. If the zoo officials can do something about it, I would give a 5 star after my next visit. Nevertheless, happy to recommend to everyone who would love to see the brighter side of life! 😇
  • TAKE A MAP! without it you will get lost as the directions inside it are not enough nor accurate. Many food stops and toilets and most roads are suitable for kids and strollers. Only cable ride you can't have a stroller with you. I visited in Jul. Most of the animals were sleepingor hiding, try to visit in warmer weather. Pretty big and has variety of animals, can spend 4 hours easily in it. Far from City center though, only way is car or bus. Then tram/metro is about 10 minutes away.
  • A large zoo with a very impressive array of animals. The gorillas and Galapagos turtles were amazing. There are good eating options and clean bathroom facilities. It's easy to spend an entire day here but beware that the terrain can be challenging for older people or those who are not fit or encombered with small kids. The zoo sits on a slope with half of it at a large elevation. Probably wise to start at the top and wind your way down.
  • An excellent zoo with good enclosures for the animals. Can spend a whole day here. The chairlift to the top was great and its an easy walk down viewing birds and animals along the way. Plenty of benches to rest and many refreshment stalls. Easy public transport access bus 112 which stops at the entrance.
  • Very cheaply priced, especially for students. It's a large site with a huge variety of different species and animals, including polar bears and kangaroos. The map can be hard to understand and actually follow. Food and drink is cheaply priced. It takes a good few hours to get around the whole zoo and see all the sights. Elephant valley is fantastic.
