Theme Park
Learn about Russia's wildlife and visit the furry residents at Safari Park, the first animal rehabilitation center on the coast of the Black Sea. The animals sheltered here have been found wounded or motherless or were brought in from Russian circuses. The park keeps them in comfortable, open-air cages. The ride on a chairlift to the top of the ridge offers views of the city and the bay from 640 m (2,100 ft) above sea level. Check out the exhibit From the Depth of Ages and Waters at the marine museum, and visit the first artificial cave in Russia.

  • Excellent informative place for adults and especially for children. Thoughtful design, well-fed animals, Museum and for the little cave-a great place to 3:00. Especially liked the Tigers, leopards and polar bears and bears at all. Especially interesting is how brown bears eat tangerines.

  • Were +8 in April and rain with a child 7 years at the Zoo were alone. At the entrance is open until 5:00 pm, exit before 18.00, with tracks are visible immediately, there's a big sign. In the Park on the mountain, the funicular rain does not go. Entrance to the adult 500 USD, with a funicular railway 1000 rub. Animals even in this weather all sat on the street, almost all saw. More than just smitten with Aviary 22 brown bears, bears 2 when we got into a fight with a roar and by standing on its hind legs, as in nature, it was scary and delightfully evaluate the power of these amazing animals. Generally the impression that the animals there good, if us swimming pool to the polar bears have launched live carp and we looked through the glass as he chases carp. With children should go, although adults will be interesting

  • Love this zoo. Each time you visit Seville, definitely go here. All good here. Animals are kept in good conditions, in spacious enclosures. Very impressive Tigers. Many animals can be petted. The price of feed is quite reasonable-100 rubles. Recommend feed Himalayan bears, they are very amusing beg for home cooked. There are also a lot of excitement and adrenaline will bring skiing cableway. View from the top platform amazing! Also very I advise to visit the Maritime Museum. Exposition every year better and better very many interesting exhibits. Jae after visiting various museums of Sevastopol on this topic, I was to see this museum.

  • Positive: Nice park, all animals look good and veries (tigers, bears, pumas etc )It is very clear and decorated well (a lot of flowers, tuya, pines). There is a spectacular view of Gelendzhik Bay from the top point of safari park. Tickets a little bit expensive even for off season time and working days. Lift to 620 meter point is included a safary ticket - cost about 1400 rubles. Negative: If you choose to left up on carusel to observe the bay without viziting safari they will charge you 2000 rubles!! What a scheme. another minus safari is located on the side of the hill so if you are elderly it is not a good place to visit. cafe menu are poor and not tasty. (better take sandwiches with you) and bottle of water is double priced.
  • Very good place
  • Tourists love it
  • Very beautiful place. The animals look nice. Convenient paths for walks with the stroller. A great playground. In fine weather, you can spend an entire day here. For entry together with the cable in September 2016 pay 1500 per person, a little expensive.

  • This is an amazing place! Beautiful park, many animals. Pet Park content is perfectly acceptable, compared to other zoos. Even in the Park very nice tramway! The truth is the queue for tickets is very long, but it's worth it!
