  • A great place to visit when the weather is nice. The Zoo is large enough for a visit will take at least 3-4 hours, if you wish, you can spend the whole day, but in this case it is better taken with a snack and water. The main advantage is that Zoo animals tried to create the most natural habitat conditions. Animals have their own rich life here which is very convenient to observe, as almost nowhere cells and high fences.
