Kaliningradsky Zoopark - Review
This is Russia's oldest zoo and today houses well over 2000 animals. Originally founded in 1896 by the Tiergarten Society, the zoo in Kaliningrad is one of the largest and most visited in the country. Many of the animals in this zoo are part of breeding programmes to ensure their species' survival. The family friendly attraction is one of the most visited by tourists to Kaliningrad and is located at the heart of the city.One of Kaliningrad Zoo's many popular attractions is its hippopotamus enclosure. The animal is the emblem of the zoo, with a hippo being one of the four creatures that survived the Second World War. The zoo in Kaliningrad also cares for a wide range of big cats, with its lions and snow leopards particularly admired by tourists. Moreover, this zoo is also home to an impressive array of plants and fauna, with the rare ginkgo tree just one of the many species attracting wildlife lovers to its grounds.

Kaliningradsky Zoopark, Kaliningrad Reviews
Animals are well taken care off and have enough space. I visit the Zoo each time I am in Kaliningrad. Lovely place for children and families. A lot of shade and interesting information.
Aquarium was closed. The zoo itself is cosy and the layout is quite interesting. Its full of young families and the open pasture is quite joyful. Stores inside the zoo are relatively cheap and offers variaty of food and drinks.
Very beautiful zoo!!! There's good food, ice cream, clean and neat bathrooms, wonderful trees, fountain, bridge and walkways. There's a lot of animals to see and keep you walking all over. It's a whole day plan or the park you would love to go for a walk. Bus stop is convenient. There's no parking, but there's several busses stopping right in front of the entrance. So any bus can take you to the zoo. That's amazing! The restaurant in front of the park connects to the inside green foliage of the park. At this restaurant, there's this beautiful deck you can seat and enjoy the fresh air. It's a perfect place for everyone! I loved it! My favorite animal, my daughter's love, the giraffe. They are right there in front of you and get very close at you. Just beautiful! Also, at the entrance there's a racoons house(it's paradise). I would be a racoon, that's where I would like to live. This keeps your kids entertained on your way in and out. By the way, there's free wifi.
Kaliningrad Zoo is the third best zoo in Russia after Moscow and St.Petersburg zoos. There are a lot of different animals and it has got a rich history. Very beautiful place, loved it.
To look at tiny space allocated for gryzlies was heartbleeding experience for me. Berlin Zoo is no better either
