I'm sorry to see that this zoo has mixed reviews. I loved it. In fact, I liked it more than Prague Zoo. At first I was worried, as it looked like the animals were in these small areas, but then you see that the area...More

... and so it went on and on through the whole Zoo. I couldn't recommend this place with the focus on service.

I must admit that I am fairly undecided about a zoo. Yes some, like our nearest in Chester, are heavily involved in conservation work, but I am uncomfortable about seeing animals pacing up and down well worn paths in poor enclosures as with some here....More

A good place for walk. But, please, don't expect very huge number of animals. I remember especially szympansie and mini pandas. The best way to get a zoo is narrow rail-way (take train for instance from the Glass Factory)

It is worth the price considering the amount of animals the Zoo has. Overall I am satisfied. I personally like the suricates very much

The zoo isn’t very large, but quite nicely laid out. Easy to get to, with a tram-stop just outside. Cages/enclosures where fairly OK, but some aviaries were overstocked (and smelly!). We came on a fairly cold day, so some animals had retired to their dens....More
