  • Maybe now the Zoo and is not in the best of times, but it gathered quite a nice collection of animals from different continents, but penguins do not. Always interesting and informative walk in the Zoo with the kids, but I think many adults will get a lot of inspiration from the encounter with the animals.

  • A place to have fun with children, especially if they are first in the Zoo. You can just walk and have fun from the soul by showing them those or other animals)))
