Ústí nad Labem Zoological Gardens is a zoo located on the edge of Krásné Březno, close to the centre of the city of Ústí nad Labem in the Czech Republic. The gardens cover an area of 26ha, and lets visitors view rare and endangered species of animals such as orangutans, Somali donkeys, rhinoceroses, and Malaysian sun bears. Open throughout the year, the gardens host regular displays—the training of sea lions, a parade of elephants through the gardens, flying display of birds of prey, rides on ponies, and a range of other activities.The zoo is a member of the European Association of Zoos and Aquaria (EAZA), the World Association of Zoos and Aquariums (WAZA), and the Union of Czech and Slovak Zoological Gardens (UCSZ).Both the upper gate (Dobetice) and the lower main gate (Krásné Březno) include ticket offices, but during the winter season the upper ticket office is closed.HistoryThe Zoo in Ústí was founded in 1908 by Heinrich Lumpe, a businessman and dealer in metal goods, and a respected ornithologist and nature lover. Lumpe purchased of land and set up a private bird sanctuary that was known as Lumpepark. On this property, he built the Little Dwarf castle, a system of cascades and waterfalls, and a lake with a fountain in the lower part of the property. In 1914, the park was opened to the public.

  • One of the above-average ZOO in the Czech Republic. The garden is in an interesting field, challenging physical, partly, we can relieve and Chapel "by train". The whole garden is interestingly designed.

  • Do the zoo in the hills it is interesting. Maybe worth to take advantage of this feature to advertise a FITNESS garden ZOO. If you want to see everything, you've got a pretty full of sneakers. Up and down. May I recommend to get off at the top and go down. The pavilions of Nice, but is that enough? After a visit to the city of Liberec and Prague for me a little. But it's my opinion and pay Mr. God we all others therefore take your opinion yourself.

  • A nice Zoo. Great improvement in the last year is the Kids Farm on the top of the hill (take the train uphill and walk towards right / west downhill). Good playground, sheep and pigs that are small enough for kids to be safe to play with (unless the kid chases the animals).
  • The zoo is small. Safe and very steep. You can really get close to the animals. Petting zoo and pony rides. A train can take you up so that you can walk down (at a cost). Some of the enclosures are completely inadequate for the animals which is a point of concern.
  • very nice zoo, located on a side of a mountain. lots of playgrounds for kids and nice animal shows. the entrance doesn't do the zoo justice. it gets much better when you entered it.
  • Nice zoo but beware quite hilly
  • I went there with my brother and sister, the loved it. The day we went there was hot and we all tired from going up there, to the end of the zoo. The territory of the zoo is huge and you can see all different animals. The place is worth to spend a day there.
