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.

  • We visited this zoo though not too convinced by the reviews. the zoo is very great and the price is ridiculous. 18 zloty each (4 euros). It was very cold and the animals were almost all inside and therefore difficult to see ... throughout the zoo there was no restaurant but just a refreshment with chips and sandwiches in the back, from the questionable taste ... and this unique refreshment had even opened all day! If anyone after 3 was thirsty or hungry you'd bathe ... various things to improve.

  • A good place for a family meeting and by the way to show children the world of animals. Everyone will be delighted. The family arrives at some interesting photographs. Never mind that here someone was already. Our new pets. Came also which I used was not. Small children feed the animals and touch in a special garden.

  • We took a date-we went to the ZOO. Very nice, funny, charming. Animals are cute, well cared for, the garden is not so small. :)
