Kaliningrad Zoo, Kaliningrad

4.4
#1 of 137 in Outdoors in Northwestern District
Apart from being one of the largest and oldest zoological gardens in Russia, Kaliningrad Zoo also features a rich, well known arboretum. The zoo was founded in 1896, when this was a German town called Königsberg. Nowadays it houses more than 300 species of animals, including more than 50 species listed as threatened in the International Red Book. The entrance and the walkways are decorated by sculptures, such as a bronze statue of an elk and a stone statue of an orangutan. In the arboretum, look for a relict ginkgo tree, which coexisted with the dinosaurs.

  • The Zoo was conceived as a zoo. And the Germans took this very seriously. In fact, modern Zoo is a Zoo and botanical gardens and, United in one area. Collection of animals may not unique, but very diverse. Walking along the paths of the Zoo during the warmer months. In addition, the Zoo now pass and concerts on the open stage. It is necessary to come, even without children. Get a lot of positive emotions.

  • Saturday morning and it was a bit cool-greeted upon entering-amusing raccoons guys and basically went on premises:) elephant, giraffes, hippos, monkeys and fish! Aviaries have met owl (uhhu) cranes to pelicans Yes parrots, between rooms on the street greeted 2 Chic White Wolf, a pair of llamas and insane ostriches;) To pay tribute to the staff, with little funding, the Zoo kept on our toes! Thanks, had a good time;)

  • Oh, I adore this place. A lot of animals, interesting facts about them and always improving equipment and infrastructure. Ticket price isn't high and there are some discounts for children, students, groups etc. And they have a good snacks to eat while walking.)
  • Rather interesting place. Clean area as for guests and as for animals. Tiger is admirable.
  • This zoo is not so big, but racoons are adorable and their bear is a real star ☺
  • It's an awesome zoo if you like the idea of zoos and all, but if you really love animals you'd see how sad they are. They are definitely well taken care of, it is just the captivity that gets to them. I liked the zoo a lot, it has a huge history behind it, but some of the animals looked on the sad side (visited it in late Novemer).
  • One of the oldest zoos in europe, pleasant place but not in the best condition
