  • Good Zoo compared with Russian or foreign. Many animals and birds. A large area in the pine forest, clean and healthy air. Lots of small cafes, where you can eat or drink alcohol. There are places for washing hands. Toilets I would have done more. Toilets are chargeable. Free only at a café near the artificial lake. There are many rides-slides, swings, Ferris wheel, boats in the pool, childish and t/d. in General, this is a go.

  • Animals live in bad conditions: small cages, barely developed spaces, among other points. The polar bear was stressed at the time.

  • 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!!
  • Fantastic old style Zoo, large and honestly can only be done in 2 days. If you're really looking at everything. The reason it doesn't get five stars is because it is an old-style Zoo. But the animals were obviously well kept well taken care of. It was a very nice place to walk for the day. It is affordable, inside there's more than enough to do, including restaurants, bar and all kinds of souvenir little shops. The people of novosibirsk have every reason to have pride in this Zoo. I was impressed
  • This is a wonderful zoo! There are so many animals! The Ligress Zita astounds me as she is one of only a few ligers bred and her cubs the liligers are the only liligers to be found anywhere in the world!
  • Old style zoo with classic aviaries, but fresh coloured. - there is no enough parking - no bank card payments
  • Nice zoo in winter time.
