  • Really liked it! Well-groomed and contented animals, large territory for them. Sledding in the Park hoofed-simply a delight, on the way to us and yet sexy Cora tells about bison:) There's now a little calf is born! Baikal seal in the pond for the first time seen this funny usatuju snout. Despite winter, many animals can be viewed, then bask in Looks. And there we got on feeding a zookeeper. The kids were just delighted. Very comfortable big parking, Nice staff and reasonable prices. Cafe didn't work (it was 2 January), so I cannot say anything. We were a family with youngsters, but many of us have been with very young children, and couples without children. Good experience for all! Probably during the spring and summer there is even better-plan to come again.

  • Staying for a couple of days in Yaroslavl, succumbed to publicity and visited a local zoo. If there are personal vehicles, get to it was not. Parking directly next to the Zoo, big and at the time of our visit proved to be virtually empty. Zoo stands out for its area. The territory is really big, very clean and well maintained. Animals are very diverse and are housed in spacious enclosures, aviaries. There is a Petting Zoo. Despite bad weather, after visiting only positive emotions.

  • Inlcuded, lots of greenery, there are benches for rest. Everywhere go ducks, very important and business fit very close, not afraid. The animals look good, not tortured. Very beautiful white lion roars loudly:) Rolling on Safari, children enjoyed. In September in a reservoir sailed Baikal seal, her sudden vynyrivanie of water caused the children complete delight:) The weather was not the best, but we still enjoyed it.

  • It has become quite expensive. It works both in winter and in summer. In the cold winter of course who sleeps, who hides, but still. Nice walk along clean clean territory. The only thing that territoii not enough children's normal zone! But there it is. Many animals and a large territory. Visiting will not regret.

  • Big, clean, beautiful. The animals have large enclosures. There is a playground with Rubberised coating. There is a café type, but better bring. On the territory of the Zoo is a non-smoking area, but all go to Birch posadočku, there are very nice to sit on the benches. Especially when it's hot. At the Zoo and admittedly little trees, hot clear day without headgear gravely. And so very good!

  • Yaroslavsky Zoo is the largest Zoo in Russia. At the moment (summer 2016) are open for visits 1-St queue and Park of ungulates (you can drive your electric car or wagon). There is also a Petting Zoo and the Zoological Museum. A pleasant place. Children will be interesting. In summer, due to the open space can be quite hot, so need hats.

  • Went with the children, everyone really enjoyed it. You can see that the animals are following and trying to do everything to attract visitors. In the same way there is a children's playground. When our youngest was tired walking that will gladly ride on the roller coaster and karusel'ke.

  • It was a week ago in the Zoo and not long ago I started to get involved ahatinami snails, at home I live three pieces, so their content in the Zoo I was just angry! 5 snails lived in a small terrarium, although they need a terrarium from 50 litres, instead of ground there were only stones, falling on that snail can die or damage the sink so that it would be forced to freeze. Just in the middle of the terrarium lay a large stone and ceramic bowl, which by the way was lying just lettuce, with calcium, and ulitkam need variety in food. Perhaps for many, this is trivia, but snails so terribly contain, it's probably for other animals not met conditions, customers simply do not know how to and what to do for animals.
