  • The story of how two girls spent 1600 rubles for the train to go to the next city and visit the Zoo. In the Zoo, we practically to the profits the opening and were one of the first ticket buyers. And here rejoice, students and full-time retirees-waiting for you is not very big, but pretty nice discount. Regular admission prices for adults-300 rubles, for me it cost 200 rubles. Oh yes, we bought a Zoo Map for 10 rubles, but during the winter, meaning it special no-many animals are transferred to the pavilions and in the street remain frost free birds and animals (the latter preferred to hide in their burrows and not stick out). Look good-fed animals, well-groomed, pretty) Winter there, actually, do nothing-all food and drinks stalls are closed (although how much money can you earn!) from popimo entertainment of animals-one ice slide). In my opinion, it would be a great idea to sell at the inlet feed so visitors can feed the animals. I think nobody would feed the horse refused to morkovoj)

  • Each visit to the Zoo-an incredible enthusiasm and mega positive emotions. Best to come of course in spring, autumn or summer, when the weather is not too hot, otherwise there is no chance to catch the animal in a cage, for hiding from the heat or frost. Very happy that every year there are new species of animals, as well as a growing population, and rare breeds including. The Zoo is large enough, but everywhere there are pointers, so get lost quite difficult. Well thought out and rest zones-a large number of shops and cafeterias where you can and just sit and eat. Oh and also all sorts of amusement, entertainment in the form of images, etc. Consistently visit the Zoo twice a year and each time is not at all want to leave. I want to walk and watch again and again.

  • Zoo on its length might well be compared to the Moscow Zoo, as well as on the number of animals presented. However, compared to Moscow, Novosibirsk Zoo is rather difficult to navigate, and therefore some animals we have searched for a very long time. Also, unfortunately, some animals in cages.

  • Although we have visited the Novosibirsk Zoo in the winter, the kids had a really great time. We still got to see many winter animals and birds. The tropical animals pavilion was well maintained and the animals looked well taken care of. Overall it was a very pleasant experience despite the fact that it was well below zero outside and snowing.
  • Great experience at wintertime! Watching lion walking at -35C is unforgettable!
  • What an awesome zoo! I wanted to see the Liger so badly, but of course it was sleeping all the time I was there! Still, there are so many more things to see and to do.
  • 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.
  • Lovely place to go with kids. The animals are unique and healthy.
