  • They have a respectable collection of different animals from all over Russia and a few ones from Africa. Worth to have a look and spend the whole day there with your family or your better half.  more »
  • The Zoo is rather old and would be even better organized in a case of proper financial support. Anyway, there are a number of animals and there are some interesting place to see, for sure.  more »
  • I have reservations about the whole concept of keeping animals in captivity, but as zoos go, this one is OK. Perhaps not suitable for those with limited mobility.  more »

  • Very good zoo.
  • Good Zoo. But parking-Tin. Be prepared for the fact that you are not free, even if all cheques payment parking. Call operator-subscriber is disconnected. Cashier Hamit and refuses to open the gate. Saved only a call to the police with the message that the Zoo's staff illegally kept the vehicle held hostage.

  • A place like its atmosphere of serenity. You can take a walk and lie on the grass. Love animals, but they are in a terrible state in the Rostov Zoo. Insanely thin, limp, wool in critical condition. Val'ery dirty.

  • The Zoo looks very disappointingly. Tracks paved only closer to the central entrance, on bumpy trails. Animals quite a bit. Watch the animals not very convenient because of the glass enclosures or large quantities of grilles and large distances. Zoo requires investment to here want to go customers.

  • A great place for those who have small children. Pleases that the Zoo is getting better and convenient for visitors. Although funding is clearly not enough-many enclosures and other infrastructure remain in poor condition. And I could use some good protection-drunk people with poltorashkami beer ustraivajushhiem picnics there should not be there, and generous kormitelej animals chips should be punished.
