  • A small Zoo, positions itself as the landscaper really large enclosures, but also animals can be clearly seen. It seems to me that we saw all but the bear who slept, and fish in the pond. Children are delighted. Junior (2.5 years) wanted to see the lion and the Wolf and saw the same! But as these wolves howled! Separately fenced area of the park where animals are only on the horses, so we still swept in the sleigh (r 100 per adult, children have taken), there is the "type" of a trail in the Woods, where Elks-deer-bison. It is the center of the Ark, where the kid a little lecture contact area and terrariums with insects and similar to the second floor. And what cosy Exotarium! For variety, especially with children-highly recommend

  • Yaroslavsky Zoo graced us with! Spacious aviaries, interesting animals, wonderful exotarium. Honestly, when we went there, we thought we'd see a little interesting-winter, most of the animals hidden in the warmth. But saw and cheetahs, and the Amur tiger, and reindeers, etc., etc. ... And it looks even more so in lots and lots of interesting anyone! The only regret that we had very little time-we came an hour before closing. Little hours! We wish the Zoo Will further development, so much so that a lot of what is being done-new territory and I think over time this beautiful modern Zoo will be one of the best in the country!

  • Here you are given the chance to merge with nature. The Zoo is located on the outskirts of the city. almost in the forest. And part of it is actually in the forest. It is a park of hoofed animals. But of course nature begins with the first step. Val'ery are very compact. There is a Petting Zoo in the outdoors. There are and what to look for in winter even if podmjorzli. This Ark-snakes, spiders, rare birds, fish ... everything there. Fish can be seen on the street, but this summer. There is an amusement park. Here you can drink hot coffee or tea and a snack.

  • 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.
