Krakow Zoo - Review
Overview of Ogrod Zoologiczny W Krakowie
This charming zoo founded in 1929 is in the heart of the Las Wolski forest. With 1500 animals covered over 260 species (including 88 endangered ones) housed in 17 hectares of land, it’s quite a decent attraction! The exhibits are more or less standard, including pygmy hippopotami, elephants, sea lions, Humboldt penguins, giraffes, camels, wolves, flamingos, parrots, lemurs, llamas, antelope, ass, and pheasants. Kids will love the feeding times, so make sure to visit then. Eat at the cafe if you get hungry. Most visitors tend to combine a trip to the zoo with a day out hiking in the forest. The zoo also carries out scientific research and conservation activities.

Krakow Zoo, Krakow Reviews
Very cheap less than £5 per person. The animals all looked healthy and happy. The food stall was adequate. We visited on a Wednesday and it was so quiet we were able to spend all the time we wanted seeing the animals. the elephants, penguins and especially the giraffes were our highlight. Very easy to get to via public transport from krakow centre
Excellent zoo located right inside of beautiful forest. They have nice penguins and you can see through the glass how they swim. The elephant makes funny movements and playes with dust. There is unique red panda. Gyrafes come very close to people but on the safe distance. And great collection of big cats, they have black jaguar, lions, tiger, snow bars , tiny wild cat and others. Also many different birds( I just love to watch a group of flamingo), monkeys and other animals. Every animal is interesting and exciting to watch. Seems animals kept very well and they are in good health condition. Also territory is very beautiful, I want to admit very good job of gardeners. I'm happy I visited this amazing zoo, just had good rest and joy.
Nice and modern zoo with a wide selection of Nimals housed in relatively spacious natural looking enclosures. The zoo is situated in a beautiful forest, which really increases the quality of the zoo. Please note that there are 2 parking opportunities: one close by, directly in front of the zoo, and one further away at the start of the forest. The closer one is slightly more expensive, but does save you approximately 500m walking across relatively rough terrain up a hill. Especially for those with strollers and/or wheelchairs the closer parking is advised.
Great small zoo near Krakow. You can easily get there by public transport. They got elefant's, giraffe's and wild cats. It's on a small hill about 30 minutes from city center in the middle of forest.
Nice quite modern zoo on leafy hill. Entrance fee was quite reasonable with 18 zloty for a regular ticket. We spent around 2.5 hours here. Its also possible to make nice walk in the forest afterwards.
