Nikolaev Zoo, Mykolayiv

3.8
#1 of 19 in Zoos & Aquariums in Ukraine
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.

  • The Zoo is the pride of the city Nikolaev, because it's really big and pretty much any interesting animals. The best time to visit is late spring early autumn, because not hot and not to cold, but just very comfortable. In winter, the animals indoors and very unpleasant smells summer-they though and in cages, but also odors and not pleasant. Better come in the morning to fully crawl and see. Little babes in hot weather quickly get tired from the heat. To everyone who attended our Zoo, he liked. Many people come to us from Odessa, Kherson, Kirovograd and other cities. Recommend!
