  • 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.
