Great zoo, and we've been to several major European city zoos at approximately this time of year, so I think we have a good idea of what to expect. Particularly enjoyed the gorillas. Hippos are closed (permanently?) due to a water filtration issue. Many animals nowhere to be seen as wintering indoors, which is fine. Good food in the cafe. Layout allowed a fairly linear route to see everything without much repetition. Some animals' enclosures seemed a little small, but some were huge.
Very good zoo. Wonderful range of animals. Information in English not quite so good as Czech but enough to find out more. Elephants and polar bears were my favorite and had videos of elephants and history too as new enclosure. Good place for walking and seeing scenery. Goats on real hillside and information about flooding there in the past. Great day out. Get the bus or drive.
It is a very large zoo with lots of animals to see. Make sure you go early in the morning and then you can even meet certain animals. It was great to see my first giraffe, penguins, and elephants. I am from Canada and I love how they had Canadian Geese there. It's a great zoo and will take a few hours to see it all. It's also one of the biggest but cheapest zoos that I have been to.
Really big zoo not too far away from Prague and fully accessible using public transport. It wasn't awfully crowded when we went and we could stroll around and see the animals at our own pace, although we only managed to see it all because a part of it is closed for renovations and some of the animals were kept out for hibernation: it is truly big a park!! What I liked: - The fact that animals are kept i environments that mimic the temperatures and conditions of their natural habitats. - The fact that some are left to fly around freely or in really big spaces to use comfortably. - The fact that a variety of species cohabit in any one enclosure. - The fact that enclosures have a number of differentiated spaces so animals can roam here and there without being stuck in one single place. - The fact that you can adopt animals to help the zoo keep their outstanding work in taking care of them. - The number of rare species, especially from South America, that live in the zoo and the fact that you can learn a lot about them, their behaviour and habitats, as well as when and why they are endangered. - I was especially moved by the information panels about palm oil near the orangutan enclosure - educating visitors about the importance of nature and wildlife and our impact on them should always be one of the functions of zoological spaces nowadays. What I didn't like much: - The fact that government withheld funding has meant they had to close the hipo enclosure as the renovations can't happen in the current situation, which was very sad to learn! - As with any zoo, I always feel like animals should have more space and less fences but, that said, there are indeed incredibly big enclosures such as that of the elephants or the wolves. Worth visiting? Absolutely! And if you have the chance, worth donating to as well.
Absolutely great! Went today with family. I thought it was fantastic! 5 hours and we only got through half but everything was there. The giraffes were beautiful. Horses, buffalo, camels, turtles, meerkats, wolves, deer, gorillas, lions and tigers, leopards and polar bears, even flamingos. For a really cold day we still saw almost every animal. Beautiful creatures, great walk around. They had cafes and toilets everywhere and the prices of the food and drinks were fantastic. Great price for entry too. Even the souvenir shop had great prices. Well worth the trip! Thank you Prague Zoo
