Overview
More
Prague Zoological Garden is situated near the center of the Czech capital, in a unique rugged landscape on the bank of the Vltava River. It opened in 1931 and during its existence of more than 80 years it has risen to become one of the most prestigious zoos in the world. Today, it is the second most visited tourist destination in the Czech Republic, just after Prague Castle. 4,600 animals and 680 species live in Prague Zoo. You can explore 12 pavilions and 150 exhibits over 58 hectares. The kids will love the Bororo Reserve, chairlift, mini-train, observation tower, paddling pool and Children’s Zoo. The pride of the zoo is its Elephant Valley, home to a sizeable herd of Asian elephants. The Giant Salamander House, where you can see the largest amphibians in the world – the critically endangered Chinese Giant Salamanders – is extraordinary as well; and the African House with an adjacent vast meadow inhabited by herds of antelopes and giraffes is worth your attention, too.

A really enjoyable visit to the Zoo. A hot sunny day meant that a lot of walking up hill and downhill many times was for me a bit of a struggle. If you are expecting a comfortable stroll around the attractions and exhibits think again....More

Most of sights in Prague will probably bore your young children. So Prague zoo is the best place to lift their spirit up. And in any benchmark, it is a great zoo. Half of the exhibition is on the ground and half is on top...More

I went there as it's the 5th biggest Zoo in the world but was really disappointed: few animals, bad management, awful cages and settings, no explanations about the animals and few maps to orientate in the park (very big to tell the truth). Don't waste...More
