Kaliningrad Zoo, Kaliningrad
(4.3/5 based on 650+ 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.

  • Place which you must visit if you like animals and wild nature. It's one of oldest zoo of Europe. If your town haven't stationary zoo try and find time to spend half of day to visit this place. 
  • Can't say any Zoo Special. Honestly, that Berlin and Moscow Zoo I like more. But Kaliningrad. visit left positive emotions, hour, quiet walk. It happens when you can't explain your feelings, just have a sense of fun.

A variety of animals-be sure to visit you won't regret it. We spent 4 hours there ... got an interesting feeding seals ... bears.. Interesting to me talked about animals ... The mass of positive emotions

  • 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.
