Nikolaev Zoo, Mykolayiv

3.7
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.

  • For families with children-it is better to find a place in Nikolaev! Here and animals, and swings with playgrounds, and a pile of benches, and paid rides (for those who want), and eat where to eat, ice cream, souvenirs, toys, soap bubbles, Safari-Parade! In short, you can walk in the morning and walk till the evening! A lot of free laselok, swings, Plashhadok, there are also paid-trampolines, paragliding-helicopters, floating in the pool of swans, rope park, etc. mass of emotions and beautiful photos on the background of rare plants (they are also very much in the zoo, all blooms, smells, and which Klumbochki, waterfalls, goldfish in the pond!). In general, OUR FAVORITE ZOO-you are SUPER! People, visit this wonderful place more often! And the pleasure, children and adults in awe of animals and animals will be for what to contain! (After all, many money descend just on beer in the fishing, and children at this time are sitting next to either the paid trampolines, or in the sandbox. And then-animals, nature, beauty!!!!!)
