  • Stumbled across the zoo on the last day of our trip... Perfect few hours in the sunshine. Lots of animals to see and places to eat and drink! Even at 26 me and my partner loved it! 
  • Nothing like Prague's zoo, for example. It does have a wide range of, but...most of the animals looked bored, exhausted and depressed, not to mention that most of them are kept alone, without any comp...  read more »
  • We passed a very good day with my daughter the Zoo watching animals that has never seen. There are animals that are very difficult to see, such as Tiger or Lion, but after spending many times out there we get to see them! and as my daughter did not thrilled to see them. Very educational for children the entire farm and the activities that can be done. In general we had a very good day, but the zoo is expensive to go.

  • It's a ripoff. You pay 20E for: - cages are full of ciment and sand. The design of the animal fauna is some places non-existent and in some very poorly designed. - cages are very bulky. Most of them are full of grinds, cables or used glass that are blocking the view. Few cages have a big hole between the animals and people in order to have a clear view. - cages are small - some animals are unnorished - you have to pay another 4 euros if you want to leave your backpack in a locker - low quality food which is really overpriced - you cannot reenter the zoo if you want to eat outside of it - NO SHOWS - a lot of cages are under construction or renovation It doesn't deserve the 4 stars. Go to any other Zoo in Europe or USA and in the same amount of money, or even less money and you will have a better care of the animals and the cages will be much better. I am really disappointed about this zoo. I left with the feeling of pity for the animals and frustration about the huge money that I spent on the ticket.
  • Well priced for what's this Zoo provides. Most areas were clean, and restrictive. Large number of animals in the park. Certain areas need attention in my opinion. I felt extremely appalled by the following enclosures Dolphins, Penguins, Seal. Mainly due to lack of space. A lot of work to the Zoo was happening during visit April 16 for the African animals in the centre of the park.
  • Great open and spacious zoo. Lots of monkeys and birds. Have been to several zoos prior but saw 4 species of ape I had not seen before. All the food is over priced and generic (ie like any zoo). But the enclosures are more open and your views if the animals are less obstructed.
  • As zoo's go there are better but also worse. There is a wide range of animals which to my eye look reasonably looked after. Was very quite when I went, start of February 2016, with few shows on, few other visitors or other stools like mini-games. Food is inevitably expensive for the cheap fast food it is so if you can bring along your own, plenty of space to sit down and eat it. Can get a good 3 hours out of it, 30 minutes on the orangutans alone!
  • great zoo..wide variety of animals myself and my family had a great day fav was the kimodo dragon eek ....
