    The town does not offer much and the zoo can be a viable alternative. Cheap admission ticket and many animals where Siberian bears and the White Tiger. Nice Park just to stroll and relax.

    Never cease to marvel at the shady alleys and all animals. Was in winter and summer and fall and spring-cleanliness and lack of pleasant scents. Everything is cool! From observing people well do not feed you animal chips, popcorn and kartoshkoi free pomrut the same, well let live!

  • One of the best zoos in the world. Has almost every animal you would ever expect. Language barrier is not a problem. Easy to spend over 3 hours there.
  • Cute bears. A good place to spend three hours with pleasure.
  • The best zoo I've ever been to. Animals live in families.
  • New buildings and exhibits. Has been modernised over the years and is much better now. Still has the older animal habitats. The orangutan is very funny. He has a piece of strap he lets down from his habitat through the bars for people to give him treats. He loves cookies. When the zoo keepers go in his cage, he hides the strap so they won't take it away from him. He is a must see at the zoo!!
  • Excellent place.amazing to find rare birds and animals... Maintained very well in extreme weather....
