Nikolaev Zoo, Mykolayiv
(3.5/5 based on 100+ reviews on the web)
Nestled in a pristine green area, provides for about 2,800 animals representing 377 species, some of which are endangered. Dating back to 1901, the zoo started off as the private aquarium collection of the mayor. Over time, it grew into an institution with one of the richest varieties of animals in the country. In 2003, the World Association of Zoos and Aquariums added it to their list, making it the first one in Ukraine to be internationally certified. Walk through the grounds and encounter wild and domestic animals of all kinds and sizes: you'll see tigers at play, observe hippopotamuses, and watch the monkeys.

  • Our Zoo is the best in the USSR:)! The best in Europe. One of the best ZOO in the world! In our Zoo collected charming collection of animals. Annually on the ennobling of the Nikolaev ZOO spent a lot of money and effort-all this gives its fruits and results: ZOO becomes a beautiful collection of animals, enclosures are becoming more comfortable.

  • In this zoo was five times and each time as the first. Managed to meet with the Director of the Zoo and a little after talking with him, it became clear who this is considered the best zoo in Ukraine. Animals fed, clean, there are trains that carry children on paths between cages, there is a café, toilets, a convenient location, close to the city centre and bus station (10 minutes walk), nearby there are a couple of options are not expensive and good to eat. All advise from small to large!
