  • On the day of our departure was a couple free hours and the weather was good. Decided to go to the Zoo. And Yes! It was the right decision! Zoo the best of those that we have seen. Whether Golden autumn, whether beautiful weather so inspired us, but we almost missed the plane. So we get around here. Very well-tended animals, they clearly like it here. You're as if visiting them. You through the Woods and around animals. Sorry ran out of time at the dolphin show, but there is a reason to come back. And sea lions showed us his show completely free Envy njurbergskim mothers that are walking with baby carriages on this beauty. Here you can spend an entire day. Bring a snack or buy something here. Children entertain contact Zoo and playgrounds.

  • Located close to the exhibition and documentation centre. Is suitable in connection with the visit of the documentation centre to visit. Structurally very interesting historical also.

  • Very exploited the natural space in which it is located. Very large and with many animals. It also has specific sites for children to play.
