Krakow Zoo (Ogrod Zoologiczny), Krakow

(3.8/5 based on 300+ 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.

  • A small Zoo, but it's still worth a visit. During the winter season can be seen in the number of go a little drawing.

  • Parking at a distance of about 1.5 km from the Zoo (for people with a burdensome handle after the mud became an interesting quagmire) paid $15/5 h + £ 3 each. Admission $18. The zoo itself and enclosures for animals not too big in relation to those of other cities for example. Wrocław

  • The Zoo is located in a beautiful forest, you can feel like in a real jungle. A good place for hot days.
