  • Little animals, peacocks and a lot pavlinčikov not very pure, very little catwalk. On site sell balls, ice cream. The building itself where there were rare plants in pots-almost bald-friends said in early spring there was beautiful. Maybe I was in April.

  • Very skimpy on the set of types of Zoo. The contents of the animals is very different from the conditions and quality of European zoos. The Zoo requires overhaul and conversion to modern quality standards. If you decide to visit the Zoo, bring your vegetables (especially carrots) as well as bread and something else to feed the animals.

  • Had nothing to do so I decided to take a walk around the zoo. This is a really depressing place with nothing to see but animals kept in poor conditions and small cages. Not worth the visit
