Odessa Zoo - Review

Opened in the 1922 the zoo covers an area of 6 hectares and houses 1600 animals from 243 different species. In 1992 it was elevated to the status of a nature reserve. Exhibits include lions, tigers, leopards, horses, wolf, bears, elephants, monkeys, kangaroos, koulons, falcons, ostriches, and various kinds of birds. This is Ukraine’s only state breeding ground of birds of prey. The zoo has had a rather unsavoury reputation for consistently keeping its animals malnourished and nearly sick. As a result, many people have been boycotting the zoo. Efforts are underway to slowly improve the image of the zoo and the conditions of the animals over here.

Odessa Zoo, Odessa Reviews

  • Zoo is located near local street market, so prepare for dirty streets when approaching and difficulties with a parking. A lot of paid attractions and low-quality toys for the kids, so you'll be lucky if can pass it fast and eventually get to animals. But don't expect to see a lot of them. Exposition overall is very limited.

  • A little place but you can see animals very close. You can almost give him kiss ;). I like!!!

  • Conditions of the zoo is not so good and poor hygienic environment.

  • Nice place to be visited with kids and family

  • Nice place, closed to privost market.
