  • A small Zoo and amusement park. The kids said they liked to watch the crocodiles, elephants, monkeys and a variety of cat predators, as well as a twirl of the carousel. The animals are pretty in small cages and in relation to the wretched conditions of the eyes, which may press Western visitors online.

  • The zoo is in a pleasant location with big trees and a large lake. We went on a busy Sunday afternoon but everything was clean and we didn't see any vermin. The elephants has ample space and walked fr...  more »
  • This is not a Zoo, it's just a great Park, where there are few cells with the Tigers, bears and peacocks (?!). Small cells, no conditions. There's also a river, quite dirty, with lebedevidnymi katomaranami, a carousel for children. Tourists zero, there are only local and all children. Especially to do nothing, and certainly from you without children.

  • This zoo is iiiiinteresting! I give it 4 stars because it's very cheap and my kids love it. Is should be around a 2 or 3 star for the actual animals! They are in small cages and some look unhealthy, but it is very fun to walk around a beautiful park. There are some slightly sketchy amusement rides and lots of little snack shops and toys to purchase. Overall a fun and inexpensive family friendly place to go, but not recommended if you are really passionate about animal rights!
  • Wandered in here by mistake today. It's great if you like animal cruelty. Lots of the animals exhibit repetitive behaviour, pacing or shaking their heads in their tiny cages. The animals have long given up on using any of the equipment designed to keep them stimulated. They spend their days trying to ignore the screaming school children and jeering adults, and waiting for the sweet release of death. Don't get me wrong, I'm not a fan of PETA and I really hate monkeys but the conditions here would break your heart. On the plus side, because of the complete disregard for the animals' well being, the entrance fee to this museum of barbarity is very cheap.
  • Excellent healthy outdoors place. Very relaxing atmosphere, lots of animals, nice fresh air. Good for kids and healthy adults alike.
  • Two stars for the nice park. So sad to see these animals anoying in such a tiny place, tiny cages... Take care of them or free thema
  • I'd be curious to see see the types of animal cruelty charges that this place would receive if it was in Canada.
