Warszawskie Zoo, Warsaw

3.5
#1 of 6 in Zoos & Aquariums in Central Poland
The beginnings of Warszawskie Zoo 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. Plan to see Warszawskie Zoo and other attractions that appeal to you using our Warsaw trip planner .

  • Can and Warsaw zoo is smaller and deviates from the Wrocław, but he's not missing! A large number of animals, beautiful aquariums, the possibility of the Middle podpatrywania chimpanzees and gorillas make that even adults can for a moment feel as children. Cool point "on a map of Warsaw, nothing stands in the way, to visit them.

Where to stay in Warsaw

Many centrally located hotels in Warsaw cater mostly to business travelers, which makes them much too expensive for backpackers and other visitors on a limited budget. Although hostels may seem like the only affordable option at the height of the season, you can find less expensive lodgings in mid-range hotels on the outskirts of town. Alternatively, time your visit for the weekend, when many hotels near the city center slash their prices and offer special deals for early booking.
