Inspirock Rating:
3.4/5 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.

The same carrots, cabbage, apples-who what or ecopark Feldman, where the animals much more well-groomed territory, prettier, there is an attempt to contact the Zoo-pet pigs, goats). Much-much better in this regard Yalta. At the entrance of prohlaždaûtsâ, where you can feed the pelicans and Pat. The same-you can buy fish, meat, fruit and feed their pets. The beasts have in glass cages, are well visible. Here animals almost never consider. Cells are frequent, the beasts away and somehow sad at all from such conditions. There are decorative items on the Zoo, but they're mostly fenced off, so too, only you can see from afar (
