  • Tallinn Zoo is just 5 km from the city centre, has good bus connections, but the walk there is discouraged due to the long, boring end stage. Now, at the beginning of February, it is quiet at the Zoo. Few visitors, but also get active animals. I can imagine that the Zoo during the summer months is much more pleasant to visit. However, there is also now a part of looking: many birds of prey (many Eagle-species and vultures), llamas, kangaroos in snow! You can also warm up in the tropical House and see the big crocodiles, chimpanzees and others. The Zoo is under renovation, and hopefully it will be better for the animals that are too overcrowded today, as the large birds and predators. No food service f n for visitors, as far as I could see.

  • Overall, cute, but no more. There are zoos and wilder and poprivlekatel'nee and with plenty of entertainment for children. But for the city in 340tys. inhabitants-that's cool. Large area, navigation-not really. Still get lost. For a child, you can take a trolley. Most stunning is a elefantenhaus. Only for his sake I'd visited Tallinn Zoo again.

  • Easy to get to and the price level. A lot of animals that are not in the rest of see. However, some of the animals had very small cages and they were troubled. It seemed like a pretty bad and spoiled the atmosphere.
