Take the opportunity to see rare species of eagles, owls, and falcons at Riga Zoo, which accommodates about 4,000 animals of nearly 500 species in a forested area on the lakeshore. Walk through the reptile tunnel, or visit the nocturnal room. Watch the ant colony cutting up and transporting leaves across the water to their nests. Children especially will enjoy the chance to pet sheep and goats. Amenities include a cafe, a small park area, and a playground with swings and a climbing gym. Become an honorary guardian of an animal by making a donation to the zoo. Use our Riga trip itinerary maker to arrange your visit to Riga Zoo and other attractions in Riga.

  • Easy to reach from old town by tram No.11. I was at the end of season and still it was a great outdoor activity for almost three hours. 
  • For US Germans the häge were very small and not too animal meet us. Empty in between quite many cages which made it incomprehensible to us why the cages not be merged, so that the animals have more space. Admission we found very cheap€ 6 since a visit to the Zoo with us in Germany will cost double. Aside from that we had a great day at the Zoo, which was very large and had a wide range of animals. There was also a cottage with a dark room. Unfortunately, it has not interested visitors. They were loud and have taken pictures with Flash light (!) and probably very stressed the nocturnal animals thus. As you can see in my picture, pictures without Flash would be possible.
