  • In the Yaroslavl Zoo were twice, very good, despite the fact that it is not so long ago, liked already at the entrance. Is I would say in a picturesque setting. For animals just rejoice! Locked up as though and not sit, have a free roam. Variety of animals is not bad. In addition to these, there are all sorts of additional entertainment, so bored.

  • A great place where you can benefit from experiences and spend time with children. My son every time, like the first, meets with all animals. Periodically open new exhibitions-it cannot but delight. The most pleasant pastime!

  • 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.
