  • Good Zoo, which develops and gradually modernized. Have something to look-and birds and fish and animals are different. Zoo open, so for the best viewing experience better to go warm warm autumn or spring because summer is too hot and winter-cold. In view of the exposition takes about an hour, with longer

  • The Zoo is transformed for the better, there are still many shortcomings, but can already be not bad to spend time with your family and friends.

  • In the Rostov region, not so many attractions. From Krasnodar is the Black Sea coast, near Stavropol-kavminvody, and Rostov no such resting places. That's trying to squeeze rostovchane that can from what is available. The Zoo is among the important sights in Rostov-na-Donu. Its especially good to visit on a warm spring weekend when there is such a movement like at maevke. Here you can have a picnic on the grass and just take a break from the hustle and bustle of the big city. However, if walking more 2-3:00, accumulated fatigue. There are attractions for children and simple unpretentious café. Staged assessment of good, as to assess fine still have work to do.
