We had a great time...

Actually having a child we visited many zoos inside the Czech Republic and abroad. The Pilsner Zoo is one of the most beautiful ones. It is a big park with a lot of plants and animals living in a simulation of their natural environment.

A nice way to spend an afternoon. Be prepared to do a lot of uphill walking. I was surprised at how strenuous the walk around the zoo was (as there were a lot of young children and families with strollers). A lot of uphill dirt paths and some rock-like stairs. I was a bit afraid of falling. Overall, a nice... More

A large zoo informally landscaped on a steep hill side, expect to do a lot of walking up and down. Positive- all animals are well fed and look in good condition without exception. Negative- many animals life's would benefit greatly from more space and stimulating enhancements, my worse memory (there are quite a few) is the Lemurs- the zoo is... More

Beautiful and spacious paddocks, giraffes, tigers, rhinos, ...., feeding the penguins and chimpanzees, playground, restaurants. Dinosaur Park with a lot of moving and sound mockups life-size dinosaurs. Parking in the neighborhood. Ideal tip for a day trip for the whole family, including small children.

We enjoyed the afternoon at the zoo. We were able to get a good look at all the animals. Better bring your hiking shoes, because visiting this zoo is not a easy sunday stroll at the park, but a real workout. Not the best zoo I've ever been, but nice to spend the day when you are in the area.

If you want to see under-fed, overheating miserable animals then this is the place to you. After 30 minutes we wanted to leave seeing most animals wishing for death.

Pretty nice zoo based in Plzen. Due to its achitecture and urban planning it is much better than zoo in Prague. The animals are "sorted" according to the land of their origin, there and not many unnecessary fast food stands. And they have a real tank parked here!
