The zoo was undergoing a lot of renovations to improve the animal habitats and visitor experience. Despite the old-fashioned enclosures still in use, the animals appeared to be generally well cared for and content. The gorilla... my god what a beautiful creature to behold face...More

Very cheap but the conditions for the animal was just horrible! You should be ashamed to keep them like that!! I really really hope that some organisation work hard on you guys so you have to close.....

My kids first time at the zoo. It was much nicer then I could have expected. I live in Kiev now and it is good to see them take there animals into care and love. I will go again for sure.

The petting zoo alone makes it worthwhile. However, trying to find a place to wash your hand afterwards may be challenging. The zoo has seen better days, but it is in the middle of a makeover. It’s cheap as chips to visit and worth a...More

The entrance fee is cheap, zoo are in the period of transformation. There are lot to do to make it more or less comfortable for animals and visitors. Not a "must see" place but ok if yiu want to see sad animals in the cages.

The place itself is kinda okay, but I wouldn't call a must see. Just a standard zoo with not so many interesting features. Many animals are hard to see and there are not many of them too. Nothing special, but could be nice to visit...More

This zoo is a real suffering for animals. Animals have a bad appearance, it seems that they are poorly fed. Sorry to look at the wolf, bears. The elephant suffers as for me. This zoo is terrible. It would be better to close it. If...More

Entrance fee pretty cheap at 60uah for an adult, so for that I'd recommend visiting if you have a morning or afternoon free on your trip. Animals did all look physically healthy & clean, however personally I felt many of the enclosures were small without...More

I liked this zoo! Only 1 enclosure seemed sub par and almost abusive. That enclosure is for the Gorilla. It's just a room with a skylight. The gorilla doesn't appear to have any outside availability. He looked very depressed, just sitting in the corner. It...More

The zoo is quite large and has many animals to see from the lions, tiger, primates. Some of the environments for them could be better and better and more equipped to keep them stimulated....the elephant and gorilla seemed lonely. The reptile house was quite good...More

If it is still like it was when I went, you will wish you hadn't gone. You'll feel so sorry for the animals and your kids will be bummed.
