  • in Tuesday walked around the Zoo for almost two hours-with 17 to 19. for all this time met 5 (!) people, 2 of whom are employees of the Zoo! the Zoo is immersed in greenery, lovely walk, as in a botanical garden. beasts too curious to see. the only negative in the territory it was impossible to buy water. like, kind of a café there, but it was closed. but toilets at every step. animals liked, but especially territory itself.
