Zoo / Aquarium
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.

  • I love zoos in principle. Kaliningrad Zoo is one of the oldest zoos in Europe. Preserved historic premises that are valuable in themselves. Good conditions of keeping animals. The huge territory. In the summer I think here you can picnic. And most importantly a very low price. Recommend to visit necessarily, especially if you like zoos.

  • Hello, dear travelers. We were with my daughter this zoo at the end of March of the year 2017. Visit to the Zoo and on me and on the 12-year-old child has made very good impressions. Objectively, the Zoo is smaller than Moscow. If you look at the diagram, it seems huge. But for 30-40 minutes you can see it all, including the Aquarium and terrarium. We lived in a hotel in Moscow, and the Zoo was directly opposite. That's why we got into it about half the 10th am. What I liked:-at the Zoo staff. Smell like, for example, in Moscow, no. The only place with "aromatic fragrance"-Hutch with tapirami. -Animals, even the ruminants, quite a tidy combed. -A lot of predators, and from exotic species-lions, Tigers, leopards, and of our national-wolves, lynxes, bears ... -There are even hippopotamuses. -Marine mammals of basking in the Sun. -Really liked raccoons-funny little animals. -Well presented. Although there are places (overview of cells with Lions and tigers on top, for example), where the activity of children and negligence of adults can easily ...

  • 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.
