  • It starts when you hear the Zoo betrit and miserable from all over the cries of animals. Had to cry tour long the whole Zoo because the animals are there so badly. Large animals such as lions, Tigers and bears are crammed into tiny and dirty cages that are not even close-humanely. Who has a heart for animals should not go in there go.

  • 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)))

  • Not worth to visit this place. You loose your precious time and mony also. Very poorly maintained. Most of animals cages are empty.
  • Nice place for relaxing walking, but it is too crowded in weekends. There are many animal's facilities in not good condition.
  • Amazing palace for animal lovers..
