Kaliningrad Zoo, Kaliningrad

(4.3/5 based on 700+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Great place. Made the day. Very interesting, especially for children, because it is possible to feed some of the animals. Sheep, rabbits and sheep. Admission is not expensive, rub 300 (as I remember). It is worth to bring water, there it is costly.

  • Kids really wanted to get into the Zoo. The Zoo has made a good impression, purely, tidily and lots of greenery. Many interesting animals: Lynx, hippo and interesting monkey. everything is well done. I advise to visit.

  • Zoo in winter look can be seen many animals: bear, goats, zebras, camels, sea eagles and others, little monkeys in a monkey house. It's a shame that we were not able to feed the ducks and swans: stand and feed them no! why then installed?!

  • Very interesting! Giraffe is so friendly, as well as bears and even hippo! Definitely must-see place.
  • disgusting the conditions of the animals. all the people here giving 5 stars do not give a show about animal welfare. Shame on this zoo, free the bears
  • Not the best ZOO in the world, but we really like it. And it getting better and better every year.
  • Very good place to go with kids or just to spend a few hours in a quite and relaxing atmosphere at the city's center. Bears act funny and ask for apples. Tigers are playful as well. Would definitely recommend to check it out.
