The zoo is just outside Olomouc, I got a taxi from the town hall and it was only 218kc with team taxi. You can also get a bus number 11 from the main bus station that will take you there very cheaply. The views on the way up to the zoo are really beautiful. It was just over 100kc to... More

Olomouc zoo is simply the best I've seen - it is very extensive with long walks between all the animals in their natural habitat where possible, where they are indoors there is the capacity to observe them at surprisingly close quarters (the crocodile is quite a shock!) and the sharks swim very close, when outdoors we become the 'outsiders' and...

Very nice Zoo if you are not afraid of walking. It is located well outside Olomouc City, next to the Cathedral. Very spacious animal quarters with some surprising species. Recommended for family trips with kids you don't have to carry, because have of the journey will be uphill.

The olomouc zoo is a mid sized facility that is worth setting the bulk of a day aside to visit. It's located on a hill at the edge of the city and includes a lookout tower that can provide a visitor with some good views of the surrounding countryside when the weather is clear. There is a mix of newer... More

You can see the zoo is pretty old. They seem to be renovating the place, but they still need to do a lot of work. In the parts that were renovated the animals had lots of space. Unfortunately, in other parts, the animals weren't that lucky. The bat cave is very cool! A strange thing was that you could bring... More

We visited the Olomouc zoo several times since we live in the region. It's a nice family zoo that constantly tries to improve the services provided. Definitely a place to visit at any time of the year.

This zoo is quite large with a nice variety of animals. Also in the zoo is a nice play area for the kids and a play area across from the front entrance to the zoo. At the front entrance to the zoo is an excellent restaurant, Archa. Archa can also be accessed from within the zoo. The zoo offers a... More

The Zoo is outside of the city, but you can reach it by bus 11. Nice for several hours walk, especially with kids. You can enter some of the parts and touch the animals - goats mainly.

The tigers and lions were in a small enclosure. Other than that the animals had a lot of space. Feeding the goats was a highlight.
