Prague Zoo, Prague
(4.7/5 based on 5,500+ 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.

  • Although part of the renovation, it shows that the Prague zoo takes on a very nice shape. An ideal place for families with children. Wile attractions, playgrounds, cafés, ice cream parlours. Great place. Very nice views of Prague (zoo is on a hill):)

  • 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!
