  • I am glad that began to restore the Zoo, that pet built new spacious enclosures. But not bleshhit, just as before. From all the enclosures disgusting smell, Yes and animals do not differ cleanliness.

  • Not every Russian city boasts a Petting Zoo. In Penza Zoo appeared in 1981 year. Territory is small. Approximately 10 hectares. But very picturesque! Spruce and larch, Linden and birch trees, Apple trees and chestnuts. Nice leisurely stroll through the alleys beneath the canopy of these trees. I like ponds with waterfowl. It is interesting to watch for pelicans, ducks, geese. But of particular interest are the major predators. Imagine the rare Amur Tigers in our Zoo give healthy offspring! In may 2016 года Tigress Constance gave birth to three cubs. And another red-listed species-polar bear, recently (in December 2016 year) rent a house-warming party. Moved to a new spacious enclosure with a pool. Penza Zoo-a great place for the whole family!

  • Penza Zoo has more than 35 years. It is located in the territory, which is convenient for visitors, situated relative to transport and other infrastructure and environment in General (the islet of nature in the city centre). From the Zoo, you can walk (15-20 minutes slow step) and customers will be in the main Park of the city (named after V.g. Belinskiy). At the Zoo the past 3-4 years and during the reconstruction at the moment many open-air cages for animals correspond to international standards for keeping of animals. In addition the Zoo enough playgrounds, amusement rides and other places for families with children. The Zoo regularly hosts themed parties.

  • A very large area and variety of animals. The beasts are well-groomed, well-fed and happy. There are two lions on a large territory. Very funny monkey. A lot of birds. I advise to visit. Get away without emotion.

  • A good place where you can spend time with the family. Yes, it's not Moscow Zoo, but we do not live in Moscow. Yet not every city has a zoo. So looking forward to this one and hope that the Administration will put efforts to improve this site.

  • Really liked were the fall, but despite this many animals from southern latitudes type lions and zebras roamed freely on the open Lawn (behind the high fence, of course)-it is perfectly visible. For a child who sees for the first time "top predators"-impressions from the Zoo

  • Went there today. Animals, in fact, a lot. Not everyone, unfortunately, good. Polar bear in a cage. Like, build something for it. I hope to build, and it would be good. At least, as a lion. This cute cat with spot more or less. Camels, it seems, with luck. And here are other wild cats-not particularly. Tiger-closely, his "wife" with kids-better, but too closely. By the way, Tiger is a very beautiful. Cursing, truth, and sizzled at me, but I guess I'm too stared at her and the kittens ... PUMA-beautiful, but very thin. Or is he? Nature, immediately visible, fighting-ears pokocany. Bobcat-nothing but the tail very little. Lynx easy to my side not even turned ... Jungle cat-pofigist 80 level. Lies-and he forgot everything. In General, can then when it's finished enclosures etc., all will be well. In the meantime-just "OK".
