  • We are frequent guests of Tallinn, but had never been to the local zoo. In this uinkend we have to visit several European zoos and we wanted to compare. Honestly, I never thought that this might actually be. Entering inside you go into the forest, inside of which are small pokorezhennye cells with a dirty miserable animals. Feeling that there was a nuclear war, and animals just could not release from the cells and they are suffering there without food and water. Especially sorry predators-polar bears not only does not swim, they don't even drink water, because it is so dirty that I am sick with one of its kind. Marine seal two and, frankly, we thought that one of them died, but he seems to have merely tried to commit suicide in a small basin, a height of about one meter or less. Hippos, as bears can only lie, because neither swim nor walk. Rhinoceros-this is my pain. It is an urgent need to show your doctor! Animals cannot freely enter inside cells under a roof or go outside-doors are locked. Pink flamingos stood and drank water from some terribly muddy puddles, but they had little choice, more precisely-no. But compared to many other birds that have never had a source of water, they slightly won. No less depressing housing his crocodile look, unfortunately, we have not seen, suggesting that he is dead. Inside the building there is a cage homes-especially memorable turtle, water which is poured into a stand for flowers, somehow while mixing with the Earth. Food-the lid of the mayonnaise. I certainly did not expect this, and it's disgusting. I feel sorry for children who see the torment these animals and adults who can enjoy it.

  • Didn't expect this. A very friendly, large green space for families. Friendly also price wise, so recommended with kids.  more »
  • The animals in the Zoo was big and good facilities. Only the polar bears were relatively small in the cage but this was temporary, because a big polar bear the House was under construction. In warm weather, the animals just loikoilivat but a little later were already on the move. In the park there are a few cafes/restaurants and toilets. The entrance to the adult €8. A couple of month-old Rhinoceros cub was absolutely wonderful! The place is great for families with children. The Park was followed by the towed carts if children do not have the strength to walk.
