Within Gorki park, it was more than 15 years ago that we visited the zoo. It has improved a lot but we felt sorry for the monkey which looked so sad.

Took my children to the place I used to visit as a kid. Terrible mistake. Tiny cells, distressed animals, and the general state of disrepair. Ignorant people and their brats throwing food at animals and taunting them. The whole place is one big argument for...More

Don't come here expecting the San Diego zoo. This one has small cages and modest outdoor areas. Lots of impressive sized raptors: Eagles, vultures, owls.

The animals inside looked pretty sad. I saw tigers tried to find the weak spot of the cage. But the worst part should be the exotic animals area. I saw some containers with broken glasses, and inside there's an anaconda.
