  • A few animals had an acceptable amount of space to roam around in, but the vast majority were in enclosures way too small for them. I’ve never seen more stressed and depressed animals in one place in....  more »
  • Overall the zoo is good but since it is cold this time of the year, a lot of the animals were hidden and we didn't get to see them. Most of the animal enclosures are modern and spacious, although...  more »

  • Went here during the low season, which made it so easy to see all of the exciting animals without having to stuff through a crowd. Definitely recommend this! Spent about 4 hours here, but could easily stay longer on a sunny day.
  • Great place for family weekend, for a date or even you may go there alone. If you want to see everything, you need to have at least 3.5 hours. But I advise you to plan at least half of the day for this. Be aware that some animals a going to sleep quite early and you won't see them in the evening.
  • Amazing, I generally don't like seeing animals in captivity but the enclosures here are very well designed and beautifully kept. My family and I thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. I would definitely recommend a visit
  • Very nice place and the animals seem happy. Lots of space and not to crowded. We were there from 9 to 16 and still we had to drag the kids out. The adventure park was also a great activity. If your in Gdansk on family vacation the Zoo is a must. 5 out of 5 rainbows.
  • Wide variety of animals, many of which you can see close up. Great family day out. Very reasonable prices which gave good value for 5 of us to go. Recommended. Gorillas are coming soon as well.
