You go in and can immediatly see how the animals are in very small cages/spaces. Some animals are the only ones of their species and seem very lonely and sick. It is a very depressing and stressful place with all of the people screaming and...More
I have been to this place twice. First in the summer, and the second time in the winter.
Well, I didn't know what to go to the zoo in the open air zoo wasn't a good idea at all. All animals hid in their houses...More

Good afternoon. August is a good time to be at the zoo. The weather helps if you don´t mind the slight cold climate. It is actually fun and not hot and sticy. Here is a video from youtube about the polar bear hope this helps. The is pretty good, you will enjoy it also try the funicular ride as well. Your son would love seeing the trees under his feet and riding... I hope you enjoy your trip, have fun. I totally forgot to suggest a place where a kid can just be a kid but also have a 100% fun time: It is called Kidzania. I hope this information helps. There is also a live selvatic place where you can see other animals it is called Selva Viva. I am sending the site for this too.
Here is the polar bear site
