Excellent Zoo

A lot of the animals were tired in the winter, but the zoo is clean and well laid out near the city center. The wolves are awesome as are the siberian tigers.

This really is the best thing in the city. However, I found myself to be very sad in this zoo. Many of the enclosures are way too small for the animals. It really broke my heart.

Once located in the very city center in a congested space last decade the zoo enjoy the plenty of space in the near suburb area. It is a wonderful place to relax summertime, especially with children

It is the best and maybe the only place in town where you can invite guests to Novosibirsk. It will be interesting to both adults and children.

If it can help reproduction of endangered species in the wild,I'm OK with the zoo concept but here a lot of cages are really small and I felt sorry for the bored animals.Nevertherless,could be the only chance for you to spot emblematic Siberian species such as polar bear or snow leopard. Good shashliks(meat kebabs )served in an open air terrace... More
