Warsaw Municipal Zoological Garden, Warsaw
(3.4/5 based on 380+ reviews on the web)
The beginnings of Warsaw Municipal Zoological Garden can be traced to 18th-century menageries. Although the original zoo was destroyed in a bombing in 1939, director Jan Żabiński and his wife Antonina survived and went on to save hundreds of Jews during the Holocaust. After sustaining an injury in the Warsaw Uprising and surviving the war, Żabiński returned to running the zoo. Today the attraction hosts over 600,000 visitors a year and houses over 4,000 animals. Don't miss the exhibits featuring the elephant, hippopotamus, shark, and ape house.

  • On a warm, sunny day (no matter what time of the year) I recommend to choose for Our Warsaw zoo. Excellent entertainment for small and large:)

  • Zoos always provoke mixed feelings in me. If this is the place for wild animal? Can these domesticated feel good but these really wild are just in captivity. Therefore, over the years do not visit the Warsaw ZOO. Accidentally I looked there a few months ago. It is certainly a highlight for children, see a close up of an elephant, a lion or a tiger is fun. I noticed that the little ones tend to get bored, more interest is a man with balloons or candy. You can see but interesting places in Warsaw is much more. WJJ
