Kaliningrad Zoo, Kaliningrad

4.4
#1 of 67 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.

  • Clean, bright Zoo. Struck Peacock, calmly walking across the territory, nobody tried to plant back to the fence. The bear, which minutes are not standing on the ground, walked ten meters back and forth. Memory bought a commemorative coin with one of the symbols of the Zoo.

  • A great place to stay! Amazingly beautiful uhodennaja area, a large number of representatives of the animal world, which provided decent conditions for their stay. Especially impressive, brown bears, these artists!

  • A wonderful Zoo. Seen all the animals, except for Lynx. The animals are in free, manicured Zoo. Many of them are friendly to visitors. Children with intersom fed goats and sheep. Seen as a lion lying in the Sun, like a cat. As the Orang-Utan moves in her arms like a professional gymnast. As the bear threw fresh twigs. As the camel House performs. As played by the goldfish. And so much more interesting. review available Everywhere, not crowded. You can dine on site, large selection of points of sale of beverages and souvenirs. Purchased as a keepsake stuffed toys, Tiger and lion. Very memorable high beautiful Fountain. Thanks, Kaliningrad, for the Zoo!

  • 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.)
  • This zoo is not so big, but racoons are adorable and their bear is a real star ☺
  • Rather interesting place. Clean area as for guests and as for animals. Tiger is admirable.
  • 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
