Prague Zoological Garden is situated near the center of the Czech capital, in a unique rugged landscape on the bank of the Vltava River. It opened in 1931 and during its existence of more than 80 years it has risen to become one of the most prestigious zoos in the world. Today, it is the second most visited tourist destination in the Czech Republic, just after Prague Castle. 4,600 animals and 680 species live in Prague Zoo. You can explore 12 pavilions and 150 exhibits over 58 hectares. The kids will love the Bororo Reserve, chairlift, mini-train, observation tower, paddling pool and Children’s Zoo. The pride of the zoo is its Elephant Valley, home to a sizeable herd of Asian elephants. The Giant Salamander House, where you can see the largest amphibians in the world – the critically endangered Chinese Giant Salamanders – is extraordinary as well; and the African House with an adjacent vast meadow inhabited by herds of antelopes and giraffes is worth your attention, too.

Wandering around a zoo on a cold December day shouldn’t be fun but we loved it. 200 koruna is very cheap for easily 4 to 5 hours entertainment. I have been before and the updates made have improved it no end. Due to the weather...More

As it was winter, a lot of the animals had been moved inside as they're not used to the cold weather. The amount of different species was huge and the entire environment was pleasant. We were there for 6h, but an hour more wouldn't have...More

Bit of a cold time of year to visit. But still well worth the reasonable entry fee of only 200ck. As zoos go, the enclosures are large and the animals well looked after. Most of those that appear small, are in fact interconnect to other...More
