Krakow Zoo (Ogrod Zoologiczny), Krakow

(3.8/5 based on 280+ reviews on the web)
Just outside the city, Krakow Zoo (Ogrod Zoologiczny) rests on a Jurassic plateau in a 17 hectare (42 acre) area. It is home to more than 1,400 animals including a herd of pygmy hippopotamuses and Przewalski horses, in addition to other animals. The latter only live in captivity, while many of the other zoo residents can be found in the wild in small numbers, such as snow leopards. Known for its successful breeding methods, the zoo shelters new animal babies--it is not uncommon to see a new cub or chick trotting after their mother in the habitats. You can purchase tickets at the attraction for a very affordable price, so consider taking a taxi to the zoo to save time. While there is no restaurant here, a cafe near the exit serves snacks and drinks.

  • Very cool Zoo. Mid-size as the Polish standards, located in the Centre of the Bois de Wolski, where as in Kraków, is very good. Enclosures and cages are well spaced, and the species is quite a bit. Pets kept in decent conditions. A must for fans of zoology.

  • Cracow Zoo is situated in a beautiful park. So the visit can be combined with a nice walk. Unfortunately, not all the animals have very good living conditions. Lions and tigers and pumas cannot be hap...  more »
  • The first problem was the lack of characters leading to the zoo. It was only at the checkout is the word zoo ... A small Zoo, not overwhelming. Personally, we were a bit disappointed as this is Krakow, and really nothing special. A nice exercise for giraffes and brilliant penguins:) Rather, we will be back unless something changes.
