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.

  • the Zoo is a hilly path is full of animals and children can do just fine to walk up. There are also attractions for children-children's play area, children's, skuzavky, etc. Restaurant with snacks. Petting zoo-children's experience.

  • ˇ Ustecká ZOO is definitely worth a visit. It is very pretty and even more demanding terrain of the mind, who do not feel to it, you may go up. The beautiful paddocks, the children are here certainly will not be bored. All I highly recommend a visit.

  • Medium size zoo located on a town centre; about a 20 minute walk from the rail station or a short bus journey. The site is very hilly and the collection has elephants, giraffes and sun bears amongst others. Some parts good other areas showing their age. Seal and sealion feeding demonstrations.
  • Large zoo in Northern Bohemia. Great collection of wildlife and great walking paths through the zoo.
  • 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.
