  • A really fun ride, very large zoo, with an incredibly beautiful scenery, diversity of animals too bad it was raining ☔ ️ thin, is very worthwhile.

  • The big Zoo, very strongly protect animals from humans and vice versa because of this good photograph. Look at some animals in glass cages on a sunny day it will not be possible, too was reflected strongly. Many animals, interesting, sometimes boring. Giraffe impressed-this is some high marvel with huge eyes. The spiders don't hit-late arrived. At the Zoo conducted with 15:30 before closing 20:00 walked almost everything, but tired and satisfied returning:-)

  • I quite often in our Zoo, and one, and with the young man as a child walked with parents. children under 18 and fulltime students may receive free, I think the price of the ticket for an adult is slightly inflated because some entrance pavilions surcharge. It can be seen that the Zoo lately, not enough funding, open-air cages dirty, the animals with klokami hair on back and sides, nobody remove. Autumn in many aviaries unoccupied, who is hiding from the cold alone, who is driven into winter enclosures. and you won't get such pleasure from visiting) summer's here so much better!

  • I wasn't sure what to expect. A zoo in the middle of Moscow? I was pleasantly surprised. The nice thing about Russia is that they are pretty lax on rules. In the US, you'd be lucky to get within 10 feet of an animal cage. In Russia, you can be one inch from a cheetah, separated by a chainlink fence. If you want to get up close and personal with animals (literally), this is a great zoo to visit.
  • It has some great species! You can easily spend your day there. There's good food, drinks and a lot of different animals. Very well organized place.
  • Somewhat of a disappointment. It is a good place, but I was kind of dreaming of coming here since I was a kid, so the zoo did not quite met the expectations. I like Kaliningrad zoo more.
  • Getting better, but still most of the time you can't see many animals and there isn't that much interactive stuff for the kids. Gets extremely overcrowded on the weekends and holidays.
  • Variety of animals. Relatively cheap food. Lot of seating areas plus free drinking water
