  • I read a review before I chose and half the people it probably was somewhere else or has problems receiving what he sees. Very large Zoo, children up to 4 years enter for free, normal ticket 30zl. We were more than 4 h. Of eating only fast-food so you can bring in your own food. All very nicely built, large spaces for animals, hills of dolki, porobione joints, in the forest, the use of terrain, super views. What a little map and tour are porobione bundle (all 2) so you have to go out and come back to see something but unless it goes there to walk. Animals can be viewed from very close up. From time to time for kids: pony ride, rope, a dinosaur park, a playground that is at the end of the route.

  • Nothing very exciting despite a very pleasant walk in the alleys of the Zoo. 2 hours is enough.

  • Gdansk zoological garden is an exceptionally large and well maintained, the trip must be booked a minimum of three hours, never managed to visit him faster, and I visit there regularly. A lot of animal species, big runs. During the season a bit too crowded and the prices a bit busy though-I recommend out of season.

  • It was easy to spend 7 hours here. I visited out of season and the tour bus/train was unavailable as were karts for kids. Still, it was great to have no queues anywhere. Some animal enclosures/cages seem a bit tight... e.g. the crocodiles.
  • By my opinion, they are taking good care of animals. And for most of them, I could say they don't have so small space.
  • Very nice zoo to spend time. It is big and spacious are allows you to enjoy.during winter it's a bit difficult to see all the animals as some are inside the enclosures. Very good place to visit with family. For English speaking visitors can be difficult as there is no explanation or description in English.
  • Amazing Zoo with great variety of animals, great scenery too. Perfect place for a family trip.
  • Great place to visit with family. Very big and clean. Huge amount of animals of different kinds. Plan minimum 3-4 hours for visit.
