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 - Write a Review

  • Pretty nice zoo. Be prepared to spend 2 hours here, unless you skip a lot of animals. Most animals can be seen from very close but for antelopes and some kind of goats which are considered dangerous, for some reason. Not many options to eat or drink around so plan accordingly. It is also a good 20min by bus from Krakow center so a visit overall takes half a day

  • Small zoo with nice enclosures for most animals. Large exhibits for penguins and giraffes other animals like the sealion and elephants have small entrance price.

  • Great place to take kids and ideal place for a walk. Set in the beautiful Las Wolski area in Krakow, the zoo is surrounded by woods and walking paths that link you to the Kopiec Pilsudskiego (a huge, man-made mound that provides fantastic views over Krakow and the surrounding area). The zoo itself is very charming. It's probably not up to the standards of the zoos in big cities in the West, but it has its charm all the same. It's very reasonably priced, as well - an adult pays 18 PLN, children are 10 PLN and under 4s go in for free. That's excellent value and the zoo will keep most first-time visitors entertained for at least 2-3 hours. The mini zoo is also great for kids as, on most days, kids are allowed to feed the animals. All in all, it's well worth a visit. Just three minor niggles: - There are no decent food or drink options. It's fast-food at its worst, which is a shame as there are lots of signs about respecting the greenery and the surrounding woods. It would be nice to see the same thought and consideration going into providing some form of bio or healthy eating options. - The experience isn't always consistent. Different animal feeders put more and less effort into making the feeding experience interesting for visitors. Some come in and have their routines, while some gloomily hand out food in ways that are almost intended to be as uninteresting as possible. Given that kids make up the majority of the visitors, it would be nice if more effort were invested in this. - The zoo is constantly undergoing some form of maintenance and renovation work, some of which results in parts being closed or not visible. It would be great to be aware of what is/isn't open before buying a ticket.

  • Lovely and clean, the animals looked healthy and well taken care of. My only criticism is all the information signs and the zoo plan are in Polish...... would be great if other languages were available.

  • Nice compact zoo with decent number of animals. Has nice giraffe house and penguin pool. Wish there was more signs in English
