  • Very well-maintained animals clean and well-fed. The territory of the Zoo, picturesque, green enclosures are neat. In cages with birds of prey can be seen as a bird eats a rabbit. Here I do not know whether to run it live or bring just the carcass-we saw only as some kind of Falcon began to eat prey-rabbit. For children there is a large playground with trampolines and swing, which is very convenient if all the tired: adult shops are also available. Places you can find café with junk food or ice cream. At the output of souvenirs is a standard option. Want one: on weekends (especially with good weather) a lot of people.

  • The first thing that catches your eye, feeling the lack of visible gratings, grids, formidable barriers. Of course it isn't. But the hosts managed to create the illusion of this. For example, Lions are not behind bars, and for the water obstacle, the rhinos for not deep ditch etc Unusual rooms with glass terrariums in almost complete darkness for "convenience" exhibited nocturnal animals. Many interesting and quite logical details making visits to the Zoo enjoyable and easy for the whole family. The main drawback is the lack of special parking for visitors. Maybe we haven't found, but this fact was the only big drawback
